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 refugios (mountain huts). 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.

  • Explore the inverted world, canyoneering the rivers and caves of the Dolomites
  • Visit alpine towns rich in history and savor the flavors of true Italian pizza (and pasta!)
  • Discover the floating city of Venice

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