Fun in the Dolomites (Classic Dolomites/ Tough)
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
It has to be the epic grandeur of the scenery in the mountains. The walk reaches some places where there are beautiful jaw dropping vistas to stare at.
What did you think of your group leader?
Karl was the perfect choice as a leader. His love and knowledge of the area really illuminated the territory that we were walking through. His recounting of the battles that took place around the area especially Monte Piano brought the history to life. Karl looked after us very well and made sure that we were safe, happy and well fed and watered at all times.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
I found that the "tough" week was in fact not that tough especially as there was no extreme altitude to deal with and any reasonably fit person would have no problems reaching the places we went to. We averaged around 7 hours walking a day with an elevation gain/loss of around 1000m.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
It's a really nicely balanced week of excercise, culture and comfort. Perfect for s wide variety of interests.
