Italy Hiking – Dolomites Grand Traverse

Northeastern Italy’s Dolomites spill over with grandeur. This 8-day hike takes us through some of its finest scenes. With all trails above tree line, our adventure in the Dolomites is nothing short of breathtaking. Magnificent views of limestone pinnacles, alpine lakes, massive rock towers and green valleys below provide an awe-inspiring spectacle during our journey. Because the Dolomites were the front line between Austria and Italy during World War I, the region is still scattered with abandoned bunkers and fortifications, the history of which will be covered by our local guides. Trek around the spectacular massif of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, observing the extraordinary spike-like shapes that tower above us. Enjoy a stay in the quaint villages of San Candido and Cortina. Each evening brings us comfortable accommodations—a cozy alpine hut one night and a private hotel another. Thanks to a unique blend of Austrian and Italian flavors, every meal is mouthwatering and noteworthy. Our journey through some of the most incredible areas of the Dolomites is a truly rewarding adventure.

Spend eight days following the Via Francigena route through some of Italy's most striking countryside. Follow in the footsteps of ancient pilgrims on our journey, winding through picturesque landscapes, tranquil olive groves and thick oak forests. Experiencing Italy’s beautiful countryside—hiking through stunning scenery and spending evenings in charming hilltop towns—is an unforgettable experience. We begin in beautiful Assisi, settling into the idyllic Umbrian countryside. Hike past quaint stone farmhouses leading to some of Umbria's best-preserved medieval towns. We pass from Umbria into Lazio, a region known for its volcanic lakes and mountain ranges. Here, we hike between small villages and fortified towns, taking time to explore historic Perugia. Discover Orvieto’s Etruscan catacombs and then hike through woodlands filled with wild boar to the volcanic crater lake of Bolsena. Our adventure winds down as we enter the Eternal City, Rome, the perfect culmination to our Italian adventure.
