Italian Dolomites Trek

hikers on a trail with a mountain view

Towers of vertical limestone, tinged pink in the evening light, loom above the rolling green meadows and intriguing castles, ruins and onion-domed church steeples of the Alto Adige region in northern Italy. This may be the most beautiful mountain region on earth, regularly attracting photographers and mountain enthusiasts enamored of the incredible light and topography of the range.

“In a word, everything went smoothly. The trails were great, and the views were fantastic. The hotels were all wonderful, and the meals were exceptional. All the baggage transfers went off without a hitch. Your trail descriptions and maps were great – we had no trouble finding trailheads or staying on course. And best of all, the weather cooperated nicely – we had 6 straight days of beautiful sunshine. The Engadine valley is truly one of the most picturesque places on earth.
