Classic Dolomites

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The stunning scenery brought to life by our guide and the hospitality of our family run hotel.

What did you think of your group leader?

Extremely knowledgable and passionate about the area. Well qualified to lead on the mountains and genuinely concerned that everyone enjoyed their trip. Honest advice.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Hire a bike from the hotel on the free day. Bolzano is too far away to be a good use of the time. Take wet weather gear and pack warm layers even in the height of summer if, like me, you feel the cold. Be prepared to test your fears (safely) if you don't like heights. Embrace the local food. If you want to use a little less English, scrub up on your German.....much more widely spoken than Italian in the area. If you have the time and budget, fit in a couple of days in Venice. Easy to get to from the airport transfer and a great contrast. Take home some prosecco!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

You won't be disappointed if you book this trip. There is no option to do via Ferrata routes but you will experience some short sections of wires and ladders to get a flavour without the adrenaline. Travelled in a pair ages 27 and 32.
