In the Dolomite mountains in Italy you can take a different kind of trip that uses the infrastructure that is there for skiing and hiking to create off-road itineraries that take cyclists deep into the high mountains, says Tom Allan in the Financial Times. Each night along the route ends at a different mountain hut or small hotel.

The Dolomites are among Italy’s most breathtaking wonders, with their jagged peaks taking on a pink tinge in the sunshine. Rather than doing a traditional hike through these glorious mountains, strap yourself in for a trip along the via ferratas.
It sounds easy: “Cruising over rocky passes and through lush meadows.”
Dolomites - Al norte de Italia, en los Alpes orientales y rozando la frontera con Austria, Dolomites es el complejo con el mayor dominio esquiable del mundo.
Natural High - This winter, if you're longing to be far from the madding crowd and chairlift chaos of another jam-packed ski resort, a "slow ski" safari iis the perfect way to experience the transcendent beauty of Italy's DOLOMITES. Enjoy enchanting overnight stays in remote mountain huts and immerse yourself in nature on an exhilarating Alpine adventure where you'll never ski the same piste twice, and where every view is more breathtaking than the last...
Tre fra i tanti modi di vivere la montagna invernale, tre “zoomate” su ciascuno di essi. La prima è dedicata al mix tra “sci intensivo”, panorami naturali e ospitalità di qualità offerto dal Dolomiti Superski. Le successive ci porteranno una tra alcune mete d’élite in Svizzera e l’altra in Valle d’Aosta, per un paio di località che dimostrano che la montagna in inverno non è solo sci.
The main attraction for many people is the variety of activities in the various resort villages, much of the pisted slopes could be deemed intermediate with plenty of easy runs. However, normally there are a vast number of real challenges off piste to keep most advanced skiers happy.
Combine some fabulous skiing with fine Italian cuisine. On this guided safari you’ll ski some of the 1,200 kilometres of prepared pistes that are all on one ski pass. Moving from valley to valley on skis, you’ll be able to enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of the mountain rifugios, explore the culture and history of the mountains, while dining on the home-made traditional dishes of the Dolomites and sampling the fine wines of the region.
For eight days explore some of the most challenging off-piste terrain and couloirs of Alta Badia, Cortina d’Ampezzo and Arabba with a fully-qualified mountain guide. Runs include the fabled Val Mezdi that cleaves the mighty Sella massif, steep Sass Pordoi, and the thrilling Lagazuoi couloirs. Each night you stay in a different mountain hut, all of them renowned for their local Italian cuisine. The standard is moderate to challenging. You’ll use both lifts and skins to reach the best powder and couloirs.
The Dolomites: a land of silver spires, mountain cuisine, wartime history and little creatures that whistle at you...
My visit was in November — springtime in Patagonia, but it was unseasonably warm and mercifully windless. For a European, the pristine landscape of mountains, forests and lakes feels almost supernatural, as if you are witnessing the moment after God created the world.
Dolomite Mountains, empresa dedicada a proveer experiencias ùnicas en viajes de aventura, ofrece un recorrido inèdito donde combina el esquì en lo mejor de los Alpes Italianos con la alta gastronomìa.
No es Roma, no es Venecia... son las Dolomitas, las montañas más famosas de Italia. Situadas en los Alpes Orientales, esta escarpada cadena geológica fue protegida por la Unesco. Allí, con un paisaje paradisíaco, está el centro vacacional que cuenta con guías certificados para tantas opciones como se les ocurra: desde las tradicionales bajadas de esquí y snowboard, hasta terrenos fuera de pista, biking, escalada, hiking, trekking y más.
Cuando llega la primavera y la nieve de los centros de esquì argentinos se evapora, es hora de emigrar al Norte. Las pistas de los ski resorts de Estados Unidos y Canadà ofrecen esquì de primer nivel, variada vida nocturna y gastronomìa de alta gama
In the Italian Alps, a local outfitter customizes a cushy inn-to-inn ski trip
Italy’s Alta Badia region contains half-a-dozen traditional ski villages of various sizes. Located on the famous Sellaronda circuit, within the giant Dolomiti Superski region, it’s almost as famous for its authentic atmosphere (the local Ladin dialect is still spoken here) and superb cuisine as it is for its strong winter-sports heritage. Even the most lowly mountain hut here endeavours to provide gourmet quality cuisine at affordable prices.
Dolomite Mountains ofrece una singular experiencia, el Luxury Gourmet Ski Safari, donde se mezclan la mejor gastronomía junto con el esquí en las pistas más fascinantes de Europa.
The 24-mile Sella Ronda circuit is a dream for powder lovers tired of crowds.
Sun seekers might disagree, but in my opinion there are few better places to spend the summer than the Alps, where you can find dozens of activities to suit everyone from uber athletes to Uber passengers. My family needed a little convincing too, before they’d agree to spend their holidays in the mountains rather than on an island beach resort, so to sway them I called on the help of Dolomite Mountains, a holiday company specialising in tours of the Italian mountain range. Our plan was to mix some hiking and biking with a bit of comfort and culture.
A magnificent art gallery with guest rooms. That’s the unique appeal of this hotel experience in Sardinia, Italy. If you think that a hotel is just somewhere to lie your weary head at night, then think again. The Su Gologone, with its colonial architecture blending into the hillside, reflects traditions of Sardinia through a constantly evolving display of Sardinian art, folkloric costumes and decor.
Challenge yourself on a exhilarating backcountry itinerary in this hospitable Italian region, on a seven-night Backcountry Ski Touring Adventure. Starting from the village of Falcade, on the edge of the Trevalli ski area, you’ll stay three nights in three-star hotels and three nights in simple mountain refuges. Dolomite Mountains organises private departures for small groups of expert skiers or snowboarders between mid-December and mid-April. The guide ratio is one to four and high stamina levels are required.
Italy “Welcome to Nature’s Paradise” should be the national slogan for Sardinia, Italy. Sardinia’s Selvaggio Blu, is easily the most spectacular and most scenic trek in all of Italy. Situated between the glorious Mediteranean Sea and high rocky planes of Golgo, this trek offers spectacular views. The Selvaggio Blu manages to be one of Italy’s best kept secrets for unspoiled nature, despite its claim as the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a short flight from major cities in Italy, thus making for an easy stopover on a trip to Italy.

Cortina in undoubtedly Italy’s most exclusive destination. This pretty and historic mountain town is overlooked by spectacular peaks of the Unesco World Heritage Dolomites whilst the town centre is similarly dominated by the 70 metre high bell tower and encircled by grand 19th century mansions.
The rolling Alpine foothills of Veneto have long provided refuge for Venetian nobility seeking relief from the searing summer heat. For over a thousand years, members of one of the wealthiest and most influential empires in the world constructed private villas in the hills, and brought a love for culture and the arts still seen in the local towns and villages.
Love can mean many different things to many different people but something we have discovered here at H&L is that the universal language of love is food.
At the summit of a small hill in the Veneto pre-alps it is rather surprising to come across a solitary vending machine under a wooden shelter. This however is no ordinary dispenser, nor indeed an ordinary hill for that matter. The goods dispensed are full size bottles of Prosecco and the hill is the famous Colline del Cartizze.
The Dolomites are often said to have Europe’s most dramatic landscape. Touring and staying in mountain refuges provides plenty of time to appreciate it

“Wait here,” said Luca, tying a rope to me. “When I shout ‘ready’, you can start to climb.” With that, he edged around the sheer rock face like a mime artist feeling an imaginary wall, humming the theme tune from the Indiana Jones films. “Climb,” I shouted after Luca. “I . . . I don’t know how to climb . . . ” But he was already gone.

Invented by Italian soldiers to get around the mountains during the First World War, via ferrata is today a surprisingly accessible form of climbing that allows non-mountaineers to scale vertical faces.
WHEN WORLD WAR I broke out, Italy’s Dolomites became a treacherous front line for Austrian and Italian soldiers. Here among the jagged peaks and sheer pastel walls of this ancient range of the Alps, where many cultures had coexisted for centuries, soldiers on both sides built networks of bolted-down steel cables, called via ferrata (iron path), to move supplies quickly—and for other mis- sions, too.

The Adventure: A 13-day via ferrata expedition through Italy’s Dolomites.
The Dolomites are the crown jewels of the Alps. Fairytale spires, twisted towers and sheer rock faces soar above emerald valleys. A collision of continental plates millions of years ago thrust the rock up and out of the sea and formed these spectacular mountains, whose highest peaks are nearly 11,000 feet.
In the Dolomites, there is a relatively new ski experience known as the ski safari, and it's fast becoming the adventure of choice for Dolomite visitors from across the globe that come in search of diversity and uniqueness.
When it comes to travel, “luxury” is a subjective concept. For some it’s all about Frette sheets, seat 1A or mooring up on the waterfront in Cannes. For others it’s as simple as a lie-in, no flashing red light on the BlackBerry and a freshly-baked baguette from the boulangerie down the road.
There's skiing the Alps, and then there's skiing the Italian Alps.

Modern day Bolzano presents a magical convergence of the area's rich, ancient past with its modern, vibrant present. One of the best times to visit is from mid-November through most of December, when the area is transformed into a winter wonderland and is bustling with visitors who come to experience the famous Christmas Market of Bolzano.
Like EM Forster’s heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, who ventured to Italy to escape from her stifled middle class Victorian life and ‘find herself’ amongst the Duomo’s of Florence in ‘A Room With a View, I too headed to Italy for a change of scene. But I swopped the cathedrals of Florence for the towering Duomo’s of the Dolomites; with its pillars and colossal rock walls, which turn from grey to gold and red at dusk.

It’s not uncommon in Europe to have a gondola in the centre of a village but never before have I skied from one tiny village down into another small village, taken my skis off, walked across a narrow road, put the skis back on and taken a lift up to the top of the next peak.
The VIA FERRATA!! This is what brought us to the Dolomites in northern Italy. I read about this in some travel book (can’t remember anymore which one) that this was one of the top adventures in the world. After doing it I can say it was a blast and an amazing adventure but one of the top adventures in the world??… maybe a little bit a stretch. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.

Call it an Alpine fever dream. Or disorientation from a nearly utopian week in Italy’s vertiginous, bone-white Dolomite Mountain region, hiking through verdant valleys and along exposed ridgelines, dining on impeccable rustic fare and drinking too much red wine.

Don’t ask me how I did it. Don’t. But somehow I find myself in the Dolomite Mountains smack in the north of Italy on a 5-day bike tour through some of the most stunning scenery I’ve seen this side of Jessica Alba. Fueled on amazing pasta and red wine while surrounded by those gorgeous Italian women on bikes, the Dolomite Mountains are the greatest cycling spot in the entire Alps. In this locale I will soon find myself going mad-with-biking power.
I stared at what looked like a giant metal playground mounted on the side of the mountains, and was instantly sold. Inner child awoken, the notion of scrambling up ladders, crossing bridges and scaling rock faces was better than candy. I was ready to give it a go – right then and there.

Located just south of the main section of the Alps, the Italian Dolomites are somewhat of a tourist mecca, offering breathtaking views, peaceful pastures, and a step back in history to a simpler time.
