A good level of fitness is required
The mountains of the Dolomites are arguably the most majestic and dramatic peaks on the planet. We describe them as the Yosemite of Europe, as they are equally impressive and offer much more in the way of photo opportunities.
We currently offer two different itineraries for our Dolomites trips. The first (Adventure) is our original format - utilising the many amazing mountain refuges which are situated in stunning locations around the area. These often require a serious hike to access, so this trip is only for the adventurous and those who enjoy lots of physical exertion. The refuges offer a good level of comfort and food, stunning views and a sense of isolation. It's the only way to be at elevated summits for sunrise and sunset. On this trip we try to alternate each refuge with a nice hotel stay to give everyone a decent night's sleep in their own room.
You ran a great tour, and I really wouldn’t have changed anything if I could do it again. The places you got us into, at the right times were all excellent.
Our second itinerary (Comfort) is hotel based and therefore offers more comfort and requires less physical exertion. We still access mountain summits for the amazing views, but we do this during the day when the cable cars are operational. We do still throw in one refuge stay, which is easily accessible and is about as close to being a hotel as a refuge can be. Both trips are the same price, but the hotel based one is two nights shorter due to being able to cover more ground by road.
In the evenings we will hold informal post production and critique sessions for anyone interested. As with all our trips, we will have two guides to ensure everyone gets one-to-one tuition time if required.
Meet your hosts...
Harry has been leading our trips to the Dolomites from the very start. He has experience guiding in the Canadian Rockies, across the whole of Scotland and further afield. Our guides aim to create a relaxed atmosphere while being on hand at all times to help you get the very best out of the trip.
As always, Harry will be accompanied by another member of the Mc2 team.
An amazing experience and one which I would love to do again
What made this trip special were the overnight stays in the refuges to get the best views at sunrise and sunset.
You have a great way of blending fun with learning. Don’t change your style!
