Classic Dolomites

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There were many highlights but the morning we set off for the tre cime was so wet and misty that we were sure it would not go ahead. Great disappointment. However as we sat in the refuge drinking coffee a miracle happened - suddenly there was blue sky! We were off and what a wonderful day we had.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our leader was very personable and competent . He managed our expectations well and always had a food inspired goal for us to look forward to like pancakes or hot chocolate with rum. He was very knowledgable about the history of the war in the area and brought ' alive' the many bunkers, trenches etc still to be found.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The only negative of this trip is that the group flights arrives very late at night and the transfer from venice is long.
