Welcome to wonderful Veneto! This region is one of the gems of north east Italy, with a variety of landscapes ranging from mountains, to hills, and even the seaside. This tour is all about the beauty of the Dolomites, the regional delicacies of the area and of course, prosecco! You’ll be travelling back in time to the middle ages, visiting two magnificent castles. Then off we go, to explore the these lands adventure style, hiking around the mountain peaks and lakes. We’ll learn a lot about the history of these places and get a taste of Italian culture, art and culinary traditions. Nature, adventure, good food, great company and prosecco: this tour ticks all the boxes!
Hooked already? Well, the tour was created by our travel coordinator Alberto Furlan. He is from this neck of the woods and was pretty much born wearing hiking boots. He is an expert on Dolomites (and Prosecco!) so we have no doubt you’ll fall in love with this tour too!
This is a self drive tour to give us the flexibility to move around as we please. So, if you are happy to drive, please let us know when you book. Your fellow travellers will be super grateful! We’ll be driving an average of 60 miles per day, so download a few throwback jams and get ready to sing your heart out on the road. When packing, remember the golden rule of “less is more”. We recommend using compact luggage to facilitate hotel changes and optimise space in the cars.
The tour involves a fair amount of physical activity. Some of the more difficult activities (trekking, excursions) are optional, and if you are not up for the challenge, your travel coordinator will provide easier alternatives for you to enjoy. This way, you’ll head home feeling refreshed and mesmerised by everything you got to discover!
