Snow business in the Dolomites Dolomites, Italy
During the European winter swap skis for snowshoes and head to the Dolomites for an eight-day snowjourn thanks to KE Adventure Travel. You’ll be based in the picturesque resort town of Cortina and accompanied by local mountain guides who know the slopes like the back of their hands.
Most days you’ll average at least 10 kilometres, but when you’re passing the breathtaking rock formations of Tre Cime de Lavaredo and Cinque Torri, plus summiting Monte Mondeval, you won’t even notice your step count climbing. Along the way there are various World War I museums, monuments and military emplacements to check out, and compulsory stops are made for strudel and coffee.
