Highlights of the Dolomites

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Climbing up a steep slope to the Vaiolon pass, involving a fixed ladder on Day 2 Coming down a long and steep descent through meadows and forest on Day 4, after a stimulating walk over a couple of passes.

What did you think of your group leader?

Albert was excellent. Sometimes a man of few words, he was always aware of where everyone was and how they were doing. I always felt comfortable in his group.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

This was a more expensive holiday than I had expected. last year ( in Tuscany) the daily travel to start the walks and the wine with the meal was included. Here, everything was extra and we used both bus and ski lifts in abundance because we were staying a long way down the valley from many of the walks. People should be warned about this

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The hotel was only adequate. The rooms were small, the beds narrow and uncomfortable and the food at dinner was poor. The saving grace was the salad bar, where we could supplement the other shortcomings.
