Stunning pale mountains rise abruptly from rolling green meadows. Villages dot the steep, narrow valleys. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has awed visitors for millennia. Come hike with Big Round World through an area many consider the most beautiful mountains on earth. Smaller than the neighboring Alps, these craggy mountains are readily accessible through a network of roads and ski lifts. Using our hotel in Cortina, Queen of the Dolomites and home to the 1951 Winter Olympics, as a base, our day hikes will enable us to experience some of the variety of the nine groups of mountains that make up the system. Our comfortable three star hotel is situated in the heart of town and convenient to many restaurants.

Suited to regular hikers who like to hike 5-8 miles daily over varied and sometimes challenging terrain, often steep, very rocky, and with occasional exposure to steep drop offs. Group size 10-14.
