SMALL GROUP WINTER TOUR

On the northern edge of Italy’s most impressive mountain range, in the Alta Pusteria Valley and just north of Cortina d’Ampezzo, lies the charming village of Villabassa. This area of the Dolomites is perfect for snowshoeing with routes leading into Fanes-Sennes Natural Park, along the shoreline of Lago di Braies and beneath the jagged peaks of Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Trek along forest trails and old military tracks to the magnificent viewpoints of Durrakopf (2275m) and Strudelkopf (2307m), learning more about the impact of World War 1 in this area along the way. Our base for the week will be the superb Hotel Adler, situated in the centre of the town and one of the best hotels we feature in our entire programme. This 4-star accommodation provides the perfect place to unwind after a day’s snowshoeing, with Michelin recommended cuisine and a relaxing wellness centre.

Snowshoeing is offered at Grade 3 – Moderate. Expect to spend 5-6hrs in the mountains each day. No experience of snowshoeing is necessary, but good health and fitness are important, as walking in snow can be more tiring than summer walking. Some walking at higher altitude and occasional longer/harder days may be involved.
