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

    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.

    Yes, it's included. We will transfer the luggage between each accommodation according to your itinerary. Each person can take a suitcase up to 20 kg (45 lbs).
