Luxury Dolomites Tours

From a picture alone, the Dolomites and the surrounding Alps are jaw-droppingly beautiful. The contrasting landscape is a work of art: jagged mountain peaks meet smooth, shimmering lakes. Vibrant green hills meet snow-peaked edges. The Dolomites are arguably one of the most beautiful sites across all of Italy, and often a scene that many tourists do not expect to see.

The Dolomites, also known as the Dolomite Mountains or Alps, are located in northeastern Italy, close to the Italian-Austrian border. Only a two-hour train journey from Venice, the Dolomites are often included in an Italian tour because of its picturesque landscape and calming nature. Many other Italian cities and destinations are fast-paced, scheduled with visits to architectural and historical sites. A trip to the Dolomites allows you to be at one with nature and enjoy life at a slower pace.

The Dolomites – or ‘Dolomiti’ as you may hear by the Italians, are actually part of the larger Eastern Alps which cover around 130,000km². The Dolomites cover three regions named Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. An area that has been explored for centuries, the Dolomites have remnants of the first World War in the area. Small, intimate museums can be found which show history in the making – with tunnels and artifacts forming a timeline, from Austrian to Italian control. With that in mind, the cuisine here is quite different from other Italian destinations. Hearty dishes like ravioli and dumplings are the delacy – a mix between both Austrian and Italian pallets. During your stay, you’ll come across many vineyards and wineries in this region. Award-winning white and red grapes are cultivated in this region, so a wine tasting is essential!

For those looking for an adventure or an active trip, the Dolomites are perfect. Here you can hike, swim, run or mountain bike during the spring and summer months, and in the winter, the area becomes a hub of fantastic ski resorts and a welcoming winter destination. For this reason, the Dolomites can be visited year-round, and suits a range of travelers – from romantic honeymooners to family adventures.

Many of the lodges have facilities to bring the outdoors in – like saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs.

  • Row boat out on the lakes

    Hire a rowboat on the picturesque lakes

    As well as jagged peaks and soaring mountains, the Dolomites also feature some of, arguably, the most breathtaking and crystal-clear lakes on Earth. What makes them even more striking is the contrast in color – the green hills and the azure waters are memorable in every sense. Lake Molveno lies at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites in Trentino. You can hire a boat here and take to the waters. Whether it’s a rowboat, motor or paddle boat, spend the afternoon embracing the reflections on the lake. ​​Lago di Braies is also worth visiting and rowing out on – equally beautiful and romantic.

  • Cable car Dolomites

    Touch the sky on your ride up the cable car

    A project that was built between 1963 and 1965, the Dolomites cable car lift offers unparalleled views of the landscape from the highest peak – Marmalada. From the top, a 360-degree view can be admired, often accompanied by a layer of untouched snow and bright blue skies. Among the cable car, the area surrounding the Dolomites is well serviced by public transport and hiking trails, so you can comfortably explore on your own, or with a private guide which we can organize.

  • Ski in the dolomites

    Take to the ski slopes in winter

    During the winter months – between late November and early April – the Dolomite mountains and alps become a haven for skiers and winter sports enthusiasts. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this area is enjoyed for leisure, yet preserved as best as possible. There are various resorts – around 12 in total – but arguably the best and largest in this region is Val Gardena (Gröden). Logistics including ski passes, rentals and lifts are reliable, and the region is enjoyed by both locals and tourists alike.

  • Photograph the Dolomites

    Photograph the Pale Mountains

    The landscape of the Dolomites is arguably one of the most dramatic in all of Italy. It’s a region that attracts thousands of photographers – both professional and amatueur. The sharp mountain peaks and the verdant forests below make for the perfect shot. Although imagery of the Dolomites is usually flawless, conditions in the Alps and among the mountains can be tricky for photographers and snowstorms and strong winds are common during the winter months, so make sure you are prepared when it comes to your camera equipment and clothing.

  • Helicopter over the Dolomites

    Helicopter ride over the Dolomites

    The Dolomites are breathtaking, and arguably one of the most awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage landscapes in Italy. What better way to experience it than from the sky? For those who are looking for an unforgettable experience in northern Italy, book a helicopter ride over the Dolomites. With a maximum of 6 passengers (you can also request a private experience), you’ll enjoy panoramic views over the mountain peaks and turquoise lakes.

 
When to go to the dolomites

When to go Dolomites

One of the great things about the Dolomites is that they can be enjoyed year-round. During the spring and summer months – anywhere from May/June to September – you can walk, hike and cycle around the trails and mountains. There are many hiking trails and routes to follow. The summer months here are cooler in temperature than other areas in Italy because of the altitude, often reaching a maximum of around 77​​°F. The winter months, often between late November and early April, are the best time to visit the Dolomites for skiing, and enjoying other winter activities.
