Your day tour hiking in the Dolomites begins at Piazzale Roma at 7.30am when you will meet your private driver.  Relax on the drive through the beautiful hills where prosecco grapes are grown and up into the Dolomite mountains.

Cortina d’Ampezzo

At 10am, you’ll arrive in the lovely town of Cortina d’Ampezzo.  Your driver will leave you at the cable car up to the stunning Mount Faloria, more than 2000m above sea level.  At the top, you’ll have breathtaking views out across the surrounding mountains and even the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo in the distance.

Hiking in the Dolomites

Hiking trails are marked with different levels of difficulty, so pick the best one for you and explore on your own*. After your hike, a reservation will be waiting for you at a typical rifugio (lunch not included). There’s so much choice here of typical local dishes such as polenta; spek; canederli; apple strudel and more.  We love sitting out on the sun terrace with inspiring views of the mountains in the sunshine.
Heading back to Cortina, you’ll have time to take a little stroll around the lovely streets of one of Italy’s trendiest ski resorts. Have an aperitivo (we recommend tasting the local prosecco) or do some shopping before your drive picks you up for the return to Venice.
