Trip Overview

Are you ready to experience the family adventure of a lifetime? We pack a ton of activities into this incredible trip so there’s truly something for everyone. Hike along the moonlike landscape of the Dolomites’ Croda da Lago, ride the chair lifts and gondolas high into the mountains, bike on the highest alpine plateau in Europe, and visit a rifugio – a traditional mountain hiker’s hut! Explore World War I trenches and discover fascinating military artifacts. You can even climb on a via ferrata (iron path) that was once the only way to traverse these great mountains! Experience the geological wonders of the dolomitic formations, from their breathtaking spires that dominate the landscape to their fossilized ocean creatures embedded in the rock walls.
At Dolomite Mountains, we understand that not everyone has the same idea of what makes a great vacation – that’s why we provide endless options on our family trips.

Want to learn more about our Hotels and B&Bs?
The Dolomites has a multi-faceted culture and history that is reflected in each village we visit, and we make sure to provide you with the most authentic experience of the region possible through the hotels and B&Bs we offer. Hotels and chalets are available in the larger villages, while agriturismos (working farms with accommodations similar to B&Bs) are more common in rural areas. And we always make sure you have access to inspired regional cuisine, and the best panoramas you can get in the Dolomites!

Want to learn more about our Mountain Inns & Rifugi?
Rifugi – or mountain huts in English – are the classic accommodation for hikers, climbers, mountaineers, and ski mountaineers in the Alps. Set in spectacular locations high in the Dolomites, rifugi are accessible only on foot (with a few exceptions that are reachable by car). These marvelous establishments are open primarily in the summer, with a select few in winter, and offer meals and sleeping facilities.
The Dolomite rifugi are considered the best in the Alps. While some are dormitory style with bunk beds, many meet the standard of a simple guest house with private rooms and en-suite bathrooms, and each has its own unique character and charm. Bedding and linens are provided, hot showers are available, and meals are served in common dining areas – like a small mountain inn set high in the mountains with the most incredible vistas in the Dolomites. Whether you’re hiking in summer or skiing in winter, an overnight rifugio stay is not to miss on a Dolomite holiday.
