Rucksacks ready, the Dolomites await

Choose an itinerary organised by “Let’s Dolomites” and hit the trail with the Trentino Mountain Guides

Trentino is renowned across the world for three things: its lakes, of which Lake Garda deserves a special mention, its spectacular scenery and the Dolomites, the most famous mountains in the Alps. Your first encounter with their sheer rock faces and jagged pinnacles will leave you speechless. But simply seeing them isn’t enough, you have to get in there and start exploring.

Every year, the “Let’s Dolomites” initiative organises guided tours of the Dolomites. For the most part these treks last for 3 or more days, in the company of men and women born and raised in these mountains, who know the stories and the right paths to follow. You’ll be in the company of the Mountain Guides of Trentino, professionals trained according to strict international standards, recognised in over 21 countries across the globe, and governed by the IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guide Associations).

This summer, dedicate a few days to the mountains: Choose one of the itineraries offered by “Let’s Dolomites” and get ready for a new adventure in the Trentino Dolomites. Indeed, it’s better to have one good story to tell than dozens of pictures to show around.

Before setting out on an excursion at altitude, plan your trip with care. If you are inexperienced or you intend to tackle a route graded as technically difficult, then consult an alpine or mountain guide. You should also contact the refuge warden in the area you’ll be visiting for the latest weather information and to discuss whether your route is advisable. Take prudent precautions, wear suitable clothing for your route, and remember to act responsibly in the mountains at all times.
