      Dobbiaco

      Welcome to Venice! Meet your leader and your group in the Arrivals Hall at Venice Airport Marco Polo at 3.45pm. Settle back and relax during the drive to the pretty town of Dobbiaco which is nestled in a green valley surrounded by alps. Settle in at your comfortable guesthouse which is within easy walking distance of Dobbiaco. Surrounded by parkland and nearby woods, this is your home for the next eight days as you explore the natural beauty of the Dolomites.

      Lago di Braies walk

      After breakfast, catch the public bus and begin your Dolomite hiking adventure with a ramble around Lago di Braies. This popular walk is relatively flat and a great introduction to the towering cliffs and emerald green waters of the Dolomites region. If you wish, there is time to enjoy lunch in a mountain hut after the walk.

      Brunico & the Earth Pyramids of Platten

      Hit the road in your private vehicle and travel to Brunico, a pretty town at the heart of the Kronplatz region. Join your leader for a walk around town where you will see Bruneck Castle perched high on a hill and the distinctive slender tower and onion dome of Rainkirche Church, together with plenty of charming boutiques and cafés. After you have toured Brunico, spend the afternoon hiking to the unique Earth Pyramids of Platten which are more than 25,000 years old. These naturally formed earth towers are the tallest and most perfectly shaped earth pyramids in Europe. After the hike, enjoy a cheese tasting with cheese master and certified beer sommelier Hubert Stockner before returning to your hotel.

      Cortina d’Ampezzo & Ampezzo Dolomites Natural Park

      After breakfast, take the public bus to Cortina where you will catch a cable car and enjoy unbelievable views on your way to the start of today’s walk which explores the Ampezzo Dolomites Natural Park. During the 6 hour walk, keep an eye out for Sempervivum dolomiticum, the rare endemic plant which is the symbol of this park. Enjoy spectacular views of waterfalls, the Boite River, and perhaps rest a while at Malga Ra Stua, a café housed in a traditional building surrounded by lush green pastures. Today, you will also have the opportunity to sample the region’s authentic and delicious apple strudel.

      Dobbiaco

      Today is slightly different, with a free day for you to enjoy your way. You can take a bus to the start of one of the many trails in the area and enjoy more hiking on your own, or visit local museums, experience WWI history in Monte Piana and Monte Piano, rent a bicycle or do anything else that interests you. Or, you may want to visit Bolzano, home of the Europe’s oldest natural human mummy known as the Ice Man. Your tour leader will be able to help you with arrangements.

      Tre Cime de Lavaredo

      Today is a full day excursion which explores the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. This loop walk is widely regarded as the most scenic hike in the Dolomites and is packed with rugged peaks, lush alpine meadows and pristine lakes. Keep your camera handy as there is superb scenery at every turn, especially at Lake Misurina and Lake Antorno where the group will make a special photo stop.

      Toblacher See

      Enjoy a sleep in and an easy walk to Toblacher See, a picturesque lake near the hotel, where you can enjoy the view and a 'merenda Tirolese' picnic, a traditional meal eaten by farmers. Sample some of the many cuts of speck, an IGP delicacy of Alto Adige, typical local cheese from a 'malga' (a traditional farmers' house), Kaminwurze (smoked salami), butter, pickles, and rye bread from South Tyrol known as Schüttelbrot. Fill your glass with Schiava, a typical wine from the region, and toast your amazing Dolomites adventure. This afternoon is free to enjoy at your leisure, perhaps with a final celebration at one of the many bars or restaurants in Dobbiaco.

      Dobbiaco to Venice

      After breakfast, your Dolomites hiking adventure finishes with a group transfer to Venice Airport Marco Polo, arriving at approximately 1.30 pm. Please book any flights from 4 pm onwards.
