La Vita e l’avventura! That’s our motto on this mountaineering trip of a lifetime in the Dolomites. This spectacular range is known for towering limestone peaks, idyllic conditions and magical rose colored lighting. Walk the stunning Alta Vistas (high paths), climb the Via Ferrata (iron roads), and sleep in remote mountain huts (refugios). On this incredible journey, you’ll explore mountain summits and historic towns nestled in the hills before descending to the culture and canals of Venice. Experience the greatest Italy has to offer on this alpine adventure.

trekking

Get acquainted to high alpine life in the Dolomites as you live above the clouds for 5 days. Spend your days hiking through peaks, passes and sweeping views of pink limestone. At night you’ll sleep in remote mountain huts, (refugios) accessible only by foot. This mountaineer’s pilgrimage will culminate in the exploration of historic tunnels caved through the rock during WW1.

rock climbing

Gear up with professional mountain guides and head out for the via ferrata (iron road) of Cinque Torri. Learn to navigate the equipment and adrenaline of technical mountaineering as you climb in rope teams up the challenging and stunning terrain of the Cinque Torri towers. Take in a whole new vertical view of the Dolomites.

canyoneering

Explore the inverted world, descending into the canyons and waterways of Parc National du Dolomiti Friulane. Canyoneering offers a unique vantage point to the inner Dolomiti world, and you’ll learn the techniques to take you there. Rappel into caverns carved by water, scramble across boulders, jump off waterfalls, and drop into the subterranean road less traveled.

explore venice

Spend your last Italian moments exploring the ancient floating city of Venice. This world wonder is a place unlike any other, where there is only one main road, and countless canals, secret walkways, bridges and footpaths to discover in this cultural gem. Savor the gelato, gondolas and rich history of this incredible city.
