Our trip begins and ends in Corvara, located in Alta Badia in the South Tyrol. Before the First World War, this area was part of Austria, and you'll discover the combined Austrian-Italian culture in the food, architecture, and language you experience here. The local people speak Ladino, which comes from the Romanish language, and signs are written first in Ladino, then in German, and lastly in Italian!
You have options on how best to enjoy this trip as well. Choose from a group departure – where you’ll be guided by one of our outstanding Dolomites guides and meet kindred spirits interested in hiking and exploring these mountains. Or, select a private guided departure, where you’ll choose your traveling companions. Or even a private self-guided departure, where you’ll explore on your own (with detailed maps and guidance of course!). The choice is yours!
- Walk along pastoral alpine pastures, across mountain passes, and on scenic trails
- Enjoy the atmosphere of a different mountain rifugio each night, a real mountaineer experience
- Experience the rich Ladin culture in the Alta Badia valley, with its many traditions that make this region so unique
- Options to experience the adrenaline rush of climbing a via ferrata!

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.
To learn even more about rifugi in the Dolomites, check out our Rifugios in the Dolomites article, and learn about one of the best ways to experience these incredible mountains!
