The Dolomites have a powerful, positive, energy that makes one feel alive and close to Mother Earth!
Alta Badia – South Tyrol – Dolomites – Areas Our Tours Explore
The Dolomites comprise nine separate nature parks spread over 16,000 square kilometers and are situated North of Venice and South of Munich. Basically our walks are within a one hour radius of Alta Badia, which is a three hour drive from Venice, or an hour drive from Cortina d’ampezzo or Bolzano.
Alta Badia is a fascinating place blended with signs in three languages – German, Italian and “Ladin”, the local language that is over 2,000 years old.
Many people have heard about Cortina and Selva Gardina (or Val Gardina) and we often go there too. Since we are not locked into a specific itinerary we can choose each day to go where the group will enjoy the walking the most and according to the weather that day.
What Makes Our Tours Unique
There are literally thousands of walking trails in the Dolomites and we have done many of them. We have a dozen or so favorite walks that we now take people on knowing that people will love them and be able to do them.
We take into consideration the weather, trail surface and terrain, quality of the views, how much effort it takes to get to the trailhead and the return back to our hotel (avoiding a lot of driving), the availiblity of the mountain lodges (refugios) along the way and the quality of the food as well the quality of the walking and the overall feel of the experience from start to finish.
Utilizing the extensive cable car system, the tour can give a group a fantastic experience that will suit each of their unique skills and experience. The tour will challenge guests as much or as little as they like which is very unique compared to other organized hiking tours.
