Dolomites Family Walk
The Italian Dolomites are a playground waiting to be explored, with thousands of trails winding their way between the characteristic jagged mountains. High in the cliffs are tunnels and bunkers from WWI when the mountains were the setting of fierce fighting. This innovative adventure has been designed to appeal to all members of the family with plenty of opportunity to explore the high mountains and lush valleys, with donkeys carrying your luggage and a local mountain guide sharing the stories of the peaks as you walk. Children as young as 6 can participate if they have a head for heights, like being in charge of donkeys and are keen for the adventure of walking for up to 5 hours a day.
