"A short distance from my adopted city of Milan, my family has been exploring the Dolomites in all seasons over the years that it's officially become our second home. We've shared so many incredible experiences here, and it's a joy to help my travellers create the same kind of lasting memories with their families, too."

experience the italian alps
Crowning Italy’s northern border, the Dolomites are widely regarded as one of the most attractive mountain landscapes in the world. Trails wind between massive peaks, offering new vistas at every turn and charming rifugi (mountain huts) that welcome hikers and bikers alike. Evenings are a delightful mixture of South Tyrolean and Ladin cultures, where you can dine on distinctive culinary specialties and savour the region's fine wines.
Discover the possibilities:
Hiking in the Dolomites
We've been sussing out the best trails in the Dolomites since the early 1990s. Our favourites routes include hiking across the alpine meadows of Alpe di Siusi, circumnavigating the Sasso Lungo massif, heading up and over the Gardena Pass, trekking the towering rocks of the Cinque Torri, navigating a Via Ferrata en route to the peak of Averau and following the signs of the cross to reach Santa Croce, a darling 15thC church in Alta Badia.
Dolomites Family Adventure
Hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, tackling a Via Ferrata—each day on this family trip is designed to ensure that everyone has an incredible time. E-assist biking for some or all in your group is the perfect way to let everyone move at the same pace, reach the same distances and check out the same gorgeous panoramas. Travelling by 4x4, we chauffeur you to your private cabin in the high alpine meadow, where you can watch the sunset and savour a barbecue dinner prepared by a personal chef. All capped off by an evening of counting shooting stars and marvelling at the silence that comes with having the alpine to yourselves.
Wellness in the Dolomites
Move by e-bike and by foot with yoga options and other regenerative activities. Fuel up on a traditional alpine diet that focuses on farm-to-table and foraged food. Equal parts active and restorative, a leg-working day is matched with a warm sauna, alchemist-inspired spa treatments and lounging poolside overlooking apple orchards. Rest up in accommodations like the Castel Fragsburg and the Alpina Dolomites boasting spectacular views, fabulous suites, exceptional gastronomy and wonderful spas.
Singular Stays: Cozy Mountain Chalets
Spectacularly restored farmhouses and mountain huts abound in the Dolomites. Base yourself in a luxury chalet and venture out for daily hikes, bike rides through valley villages, harnessing up for a Via Ferrata, rolling your sleeves and more outdoor fun from your alpine abode.
Over the last two decades, the Dolomites have become a highly sought-after backdrop for keen cyclists to conquer its picturesque mountain passes and considerable gradients. With the right training and a healthy dose of grit, you will discover why it's a biking paradise.
