Guided Walking Holidays - In the Heart of the Dolomites
You can see the path, a white ribbon climbing up through pines
and then open ground into the distance. It looks daunting on the
way up but raise your gaze to the jagged Dolomitic peaks above you
and suddenly everything falls into the correct perspective. Yes, the
climbing will be challenging but look again at the peaks and
the rewards are oh, so obvious! Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays.
Now begin your climb. The stony path feels good underfoot,
the morning skies clear and blue, the sun not yet uncomfortably
warm. In moments the gentle murmur of human habitation from the
town below is reduced almost to a melody by the distance.
With each step the views become more expansive and the goal
looks a step closer. Grass and scrub gives way to rock and scree and
here now are the magnificent views for which the Dolomites are
known. Each step seems lighter and easier in the presence of such
beauty. From here it is obvious to all why one would choose to
walk the Dolomites. The clear air and vast panoramas, on this walk
and every walk in this small area of northern Italy, are over endowed
The dairy herds are taken up to high pasture adding character
and perspective to this vast landscape reminding us that man has
lived amongst these peaks for millennia. If you are lucky you will
hear and see marmots, chamois mountain goats, and overhead,
kites, buzzards and golden eagles.
Our higher grade walks offer plenty of chances to reach local
summits. Piz Boe at 3150m is the highest point and perhaps offers
the most outstanding views. However this is only one example of
the huge range of peaks, ridges, plains and valleys to be enjoyed.
