Italy: The Dolomites Walking in Nature Grade: Low Moderate
The Dolomites are mountains on a grand scale with dramatic limestone peaks soaring skywards at every turn. Our walks amongst these towering monoliths take in the abundant pastures which interlink these peaks at lower levels. The area is truly stunning and the holiday memorable for the views, flora and fauna and Italian hospitality.
We will explore the abundance of Alpine flowers, hope to hear the calls of the marmot (and hopefully see them pop up too) and generally enjoy all that nature has to offer in this wonderful region of Italy. There are meadows, forests, turqouise lakes and cols all offering a chacne to see flowers, birds and wild animals.
We stay at the lovely Rifugio Negritellla, set on a high plateau with extensive views across the mountains and valley below. Primarily a winter destination, there is an air of tranquility and peace in the summer months – the perfect spot to escape the everyday.
There is one ‘free’ day on the holiday when you can visit the ‘Iceman’ in Bolzano, go shopping in the local village or relax at the refuge.
