Discover the beauty of the Dolomites on this incredible ski safari. Aimed at confident red-run skiers, you’ll ski some of the most iconic mountains in the Dolomites. Over the six days, your knowledgeable and experienced local guide will show you the beauty and history of the area as well as offering up tips on your skiing along the way.
For the keen skier, there's no better way to spend your week. Each day, you'll be first on the mountain and ready to explore the largest ski area in the world. Over 1200kms of piste linking 45 communities in 12 valleys, the Dolomites truly is a skiers paradise. And with over 400 mountain restaurants there's plenty of opportunities to stop and sample the speciality dishes that makes skiing in Italy a gastronomic delight.
Your nights will be spent in traditional mountain refugio accommodation (on-mountain hotels). Each refugio varies, but all have twin or double rooms (and singles on request), and some have live music and other entertainments too. Regardless of the accommodation style, breakfast and dinner are included for the duration. Your luggage will be transported for you each day so you don't have to worry about your bags.
