ST ZYPRIAN IN THE DOLOMITES

Pink mountains, tranquil villages, virgin snow and a great hotel.

No previous experience is required but you get a good workout on snowshoes! This part of Italy’s South Tirol has great routes and unrivalled views.

St Zyprian is a quiet place. It can be difficult to draw your gaze from the towers of Dolomitic limestone that dominate the landscape, quite unlike the western Alps.

The joy of snowshoeing, getting away from prepared routes and crossing virgin snow knowing you are the first people there, is never better enjoyed than in the mountains from St Zyprian. Across open snow bowls or through boulder covered fields the view is always exhilarating. With great snow and a lovely hotel this has to be the best place to go snowshoeing.

Our walks are varied, full of interest and may take in views of the Catinaacio, the Rosengarten, and the Sciliar group among others and leave us pleasantly tired at the end of the day. Back at the hotel have a cake for tea and relax before a first class multiple course dinner. They keep a pretty good wine cellar here and the wellness centre offers facilities including a hot tub, sauna, steam room and solarium.

NO Single Room Supplement

  • Itinerary & Map
    04 Mar 2017 - 11 Mar 2017

    Day 1 - St Zyprian
    We transfer from Verona north up the Trento Valley and turn right in to the Dolomites to reach St Zyprian. The transfer should take around 2hrs 30mins.

    Day 2 - St Zyprian
    We spend the week walking in the stunning scenery around the hotel. Sometimes our walks will start at the hotel and sometimes we will use transport to make sure we enjoy the best of the area.

    Day 8 -
    Sadly we must end our week and leave the superb hospitality of the Hotel Dosses. The transfer back down to Verona is equally scenic as the way up.


  • Accommodation
    Hotel Dosses, St Zyprian

    There is well appointed wellness centre in the basement which should be tried. It offers a wide range of facilities including a hot tub, sauna, steam room and solarium. Bring a swimming costume for the hot tub. For the locals nudity is the practise in sauna and steam room, you may prefer a swimming costume! Full instructions will be provided!
