A Week In The Dolomites

All climbers come here at least once in their life, Reinhold Messner was born here and Corbusier called them the most beautiful buildings in the world. Come and spend a week exploring the spiky towers of Italy's most enchanting mountains.
The walking here is exceptional and we will be tackling the best this region has to offer. Our 6 hiking days will be thrilling, breathtaking, challenging; hard-core mountain days that will take you out of your comfort zone at times. If you have no previous experience of mountain walking, this is probably not the trip for you.
Our adventures are based in the stunning 4* Mountain Design Eden Eco Hotel in the small town of Selva http://www.edenselva.com/en/ where we will enjoy half board in comfy twin rooms (2 sharing). Lunches will be your own responsibility along with any evening entertainments.
Each day there will be a strenuous mountain day-hike on offer - you can come on as many or as few of them as you please. We will explore the Puez Odle National Park, circle the Sassolungo and venture into the central massif, the Sella Group. We'll discover the split personality of the area too (it's not quite sure whether it's Italian or Austrian). And we'll cross the dumpling line.
Selva is in the Val Gardena with easy access to fabulous walking, facilitated by the excellent network of cable cars and buses in the area.
The trip includes 6 full days of guided walking with IML qualified guide Susie Amann, 7 nights in a 4* hotel in twin share rooms, 7 breakfasts and 7 dinners.
What is not included is return flights to Italy, lunches, local transport (eg cable cars), evening entertainment (eg drinks) and travel insurance that covers you for mountain walking.
Cost £1295 per person. This is payable directly to our organiser & guide Susie Amann and not to OutdoorLads. £295 deposit is payable with your booking which will secure your place. The group size is a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 12. Should we not reach the minimum number of 8 people necessary for this trip to run, Susie will refund your £295 in full (the cut-off date for this is 31 March). The balance will be payable 8 weeks before we leave for Italy. (i.e. Friday 28 June 2019). If the event list is full and you join the waitlist for this event, you will also need to pay a deposit; please also contact John, the leader, by private message.

- Please be aware that it is the booking and your deposit that secures your place on the trip or waiting list, rather than booking onto the trip via the OutdoorLads site, although you must book onto the trip here on the OutdoorLads site too.
