Above 3,000 in the Dolomites

Trekking to the most famous peaks of the Dolomites

Narrow gorges, sheer walls and exposed heights combined with rocky plateaus and lovely alp meadows. Get in touch with history: World War I has left its traces...

During the first days we will tackle in the only glacier and the highest mountain of the Dolomites - the Marmolada (3,350 m) - also called the Queen of the Dolomites! Characterised by her steep South face and impressive gorges, e.g. the Serrai, which is one of our highlights in this tour.

The Civetta, also called the Owl, seems to be a kind of bird, which greets its climbers and hikers with its open wings! Although the slopes are also gentle, we find there one of the most inaccessible of the vertical Dolomite rock walls, a true challenge for even the most accomplished alpinists.

The gigantic Monte Pelmo closes the circle around Cortina, which becomes, in practice, an island at the centre of a single great peak, even though it is somewhat fragmented.

And last, but not least, the sharply pointed peak of the Antelao, also called the pyramid of the Dolomites, guarantees you spectacular views you will never forget!

HIGHLIGHTS: Daily new mountains, new landscapes, peak experiences and impressive mountain scenery; Famous names and original nature ; Hut lives and hotel comfort change; Carefree walking pleasure: Baggage transport to the hotels!; Small participant groups (4-8 persons).
