Guided hikes through dizzying peaks and alpine meadows, remote villages with one-of-a-kind cultures, World War I history, and regional wine, on a trip to Italy’s Pale Mountains.

Steep jagged peaks dropping to vivid-green alpine meadows scattered with wildflowers, spearmint-blue lakes fringed with firs, tiny remote villages with distinct cultures… the Dolomites shows you a completely different side to Italy. Our specialists have explored this UNESCO World Heritage Site to find the best things to do and places to stay. They’ll use their first-hand knowledge to plan your ideal Dolomites holiday.

Of course, with its striking scenery, the Dolomites is renowned for its hiking. You can head out with a guide who’ll lead you along trails in the popular Tre Cime di Lavaredo area, and along lesser-trodden routes. As you walk, they’ll tell you more about the area’s culture, geology, and history, including its role in World War I battles.

In Val Badia, you can visit small towns and villages alive with the unique Ladin culture, which has strong influences from nearby Austria. One of the best ways to acquaint yourself is through tasting traditional farm-fresh Ladin food, such as turtres (fried pastries stuffed with spinach or sauerkraut) and furtaies (a light, fluffy sweet pastry).

This region is also known for its wine, which you can sample as you follow the Sudtiroler Weinstrasse (South Tyrolean Wine Road) — one of the oldest wine routes in Italy.
