Dolomites Family Walking & Hiking Tour - 20s & Beyond

Fairy-tale Villages amid Italy's Great Peaks

The Dolomites cast a spell. The immense mountains. The sweeping flower-filled pastures and endless views from gondola rides. The simple goodness of polenta or homemade dumplings at rifugi, family-run trailside huts. The decadence of gourmet cuisine. Enjoy the good life—the Italians call it la bella vita—and be spellbound in the Dolomites.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Terrain & Trail Support

Our hikes through this captivating rugged terrain climb rocky and sometimes uneven paths, many of which are remote and do not intersect with roads accessible by Backroads vans. In some cases our shuttles will get us to and from the trailheads, but due to the nature of these trails, we usually won't see our vehicles along the route. Ample trail support in the form of water, snacks and encouragement is provided by your Backroads leaders and local guides, and we'll make use of the extensive network of mountain huts for provisions, meals and shelter. ​Also, please note that our daily route options may travel in different directions from each other, depending on the route level. Please keep this in mind when choosing your walking/hiking option each day, especially if connecting up with other guests midday is important to you.

Air-Conditioning

Romantik Hotel Turm and Alpenroyal Grand Hotel are Premiere Hotels housed in beautiful historic buildings. While they offer outstanding service and amenities, please note that they are not equipped with air-conditioning. Despite the region's generally temperate climate and cool nights, guestrooms can occasionally become warm during peak temperatures.
