Our 8 day group, guided walk offers superb walking in Italy's most spectacular mountain range. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its saw-edged limestone peaks, 41 glaciers and impressive 'Three Chimneys', Tre Cime di Lavaredo - the Dolomites offers a breathtaking nirvana for walkers!
We stay in the small village of Villabassa, just north of Cortina d'Ampezzo, nestled close to the Austrian border and sandwiched between the spectacular, jagged limestone peaks of the Dolomites. From here we enjoy an excellent choice of routes with the opportunity to relax in comfort at the end of a day's walking. During the week, we venture into the Fanes-Sennes and Dolomiti di Sesto National Parks for great views of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Historically the front line between Italy and Austria-Hungary during the First World War, the trails take us each day through incredible open-air museums. Choose between moderate (2 boot) departures, or on some dates, challenging walking (3 boot) where we enjoy the same walks and visit the same areas on each trip, but the length and difficulty vary.
We've chosen an especially lovely hotel for the base of your holiday. The quality **** Hotel Adler is located on the village square, and considered the 'best in town'. The hotel's cozy bar is often busy with locals and there is a relaxing lounge for peaceful reading. Other facilities include a superb indoor pool, wellness center with sauna and steam room - ideal at the end of the day to ease tired muscles! The well-known restaurant, run by head chef Helene Markart, appears in the Michelin Guide among others; the menu featuring a mixture of local and international cuisine.
