This amazing trip follows a gorgeous itinerary through unforgettable mountains with stunning views, charming accommodations and gourmet cuisine. We focus exclusively on the Italian Dolomites, one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the world! The Dolomites are a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site, universally valued for their unique and exceptional natural beauty. Geologically distinct (consisting mostly of high-quality limestone) and with fantastically unusual shapes and features, they have inspired artists, scientists and outdoors enthusiasts for centuries.
Alternating between towering, alpine passes and lush, diverse valleys, we explore a wonderland of scenery and adventure. The magic of these Italian landscapes emerge in detail as our week progresses and we discover alpine plateaus, dramatic massifs, pristine rivers and lakes, fields of wildflowers, fairy-tale villages, awe-inspiring mountain vistas and a lot more.

In most cases, if a trip does not reach the minimum number of guests, you may choose to transfer to another trip date or another trip, be refunded your payments in full, or you may have the choice to pay a supplemental fee to run the trip with fewer guests. We make the final determination for these trips 45 days before the departure date.
