Overview

In the heart of the northern Italian Dolomites, an immense mountain range near the Austrian border and dominated by the world-famous Tre Cime (Three Peaks), is the Tyrolean village of Dobbiaco. 

Discover the beauty of the majestic Alta Pusteria Valley on a week-long self-guided walking holiday in the Dolomites.

Walk along a high-ridged path along the Austrian border; enjoy 360-degree views over the Italian Dolomites and the Austrian Alps, and take a circular walk through Tre Cime: three immense pure rock obelisks that have become the symbol of the region.

Surprisingly, you can access all of this on well-defined routes, either directly from the hotel, on a short bus trip or cable car ride.

  • Marvel with Tre Cime, symbol of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Discover the shimmering turquoise lakes and emerald green slopes
  • Visit excellent places for bird watching and enjoy the alpine panoramas
  • Explore charming hamlets and villages with an excellent mountain transport system

    FAQs

    Absolutely! Each traveller has included 1 piece of luggage that we will transfer between your accommodations. It's important that this piece of luggage meets the following criterias:

    • Maximum weight of 45 lbs (20 kg).
    • Must be only 1 piece of luggage without any attachments or accessories.
    • Should not contain valuables, fragile items, food or medications.
    • Must be correctly identified (booking reference of your trip and the full name of the trip holder).

    The approximate luggage delivery time will be at 4:00 PM.

    We suggest you make the reservation as soon as possible, as soon as you have decided your travel dates as this destination is extremely popular and accommodation sells out quickly.

    The Italian Dolomites, with their more than 1,000 km of trails, are considered the mecca for highly experienced walkers. Ideal if you are a lover of food, wine, flora and fauna, and if you are looking for opportunities for bird watching, swimming, enjoying high peaks and routes in lakes and rivers.

    The forest paths and trails are varied and well signposted, both those located at high altitude, and those in the lower valleys. There are moderate ascents on most days and long descents on days when a cable car is used to gain altitude.

    Walkers must have a good fitness level and have confidence on uneven terrain. 

    If you're afraid of heights, a couple of suggested walks may not be right for you, however, there are many other possible options. Cable cars can come into operation if, in an unlikely case, there is extreme bad weather. 

    Walking boots are essential and we recommend carrying walking sticks. On some of the walks at higher altitudes, there may be snow at the beginning or end of the season.

    This holiday is available to solo walkers and groups. There is no minimum group size, however, transfers are subject to at least 4 people (in total) booked on each departure. This holiday is not suitable for children.

    You can start this holiday any time of the year, however we recommend enjoying it between June and September.

    The administration was good before our trip and our questions were answered quickly. The accommodation was also good. We had no problems with the baggage transfer too.
    Our group of 5 had a really great experience with orbis ways. Our contact person was helpful via email and via phone. Great accommodations and each host was helpful and generous with kindness.
    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
