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.

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.
