Trip Overview

Want to experience the majesty of this incredible mountain region in a truly unique and memorable way? We’ve got the perfect trip for you! Enjoy exhilarating climbs on foot, equipped with snowshoes, to discover areas in the Dolomites that cannot be accessed any other way in winter. Take in the spectacular views and experience authentic mountain life by spending your evenings in enchanting rifugios (mountain huts) where you will be welcomed with open arms and unmatched Alpine hospitality.

While the Dolomites are magical any time of year, in winter they are positively enchanting. Towering peaks surround a peaceful, breath-taking landscape blanketed in pure white snow, magically transforming it into a winter wonderland. On this six-day snowshoe adventure you’ll hike from one lodge to another, crossing several Dolomitic valleys with incredible panoramic views. Our charming mountain lodges, or rifugios, provide all meals and linens, so all you have to carry is a light backpack. Settle in and warm yourself by the fire while you dine on delicious traditional meals. You’ll enjoy the most incredible sunrises and sunsets across snow-swept vistas from these charming alpine lodges.

Great hotels with Dolomite Mountains. Whether intimate lodge, family run B&B, or luxury spa resort, our hotels are unique, eminently local, and hard to leave.

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!
