Italy is a country of contrasts. However, hiking (hut to hut or hotel to hotel) is confined to the North along the border of Switzerland. Here we find quaint Italian villages with their quintessential cathedrals.

Hiking in Italy is very similar to hiking in the Italian region of Switzerland. In moving from one to the other most of the geography and the customs are similar. The food is some of the best in the world. Home Cooked meals in a setting that is unmatched.

We specialize in the Dolomites area particularly in the Cortina Alta Via 1 loop. Which can be done in 5, 7 or 10 day sections with easy access to the trail from each intersection point along the way.
