The Dolomites are the most beautiful of the Alpine range, their iconic pinnacles changing colour throughout the day. In the morning steely grey peaks are silhouetted against a vivid blue sky whereas at sunset, the mountains develop a rosy glow which intensifies into a vivid red.
This magnificent range of mountains are situated in the northeast corner of Italy, straddling the border between between Austria and Italy. This is a region of great natural beauty; soaring Dolomitic peaks, dark fir forests, lush alpine meadows filled with wild flowers, crystal clear mountain streams and cascading waterfalls. It is also a place where three cultures and languages come together; Italian, Austrian and Ladin to produce a rich cultural mix. Its a home to magic and legends, tales of witches, gaints and mythical creatures abound. The dramatic beauty of the Dolomites, exceptional hiking, innovative cuisine and the warm hospitality of the people combine to make a memorable walking holiday.
