The excitement of following a white trail
Thanks to the Alpine Guides of Trentino, you can experience an "adventurous" weekend in contact with nature, practising disciplines such as excursions with snow shoes, ski mountaineering, and climbing frozen waterfalls.
There is a truly special way to deeply experience the magic of winter in the mountains of Trentino: abandon the slopes to discover exciting alternatives offered by the Alpine Guides in the Let's Dolomites project which, for the first time, is now also on offer in a winter version.
Adventure professionals are waiting to accompany you with snowshoes, or mountaineering skis, to the most picturesque destinations, mountain dairies, mountain huts and panoramic peaks, to discover nature in winter time, and the most spectacular views of the Dolomites. And the most adventurous can try their hand at the adrenaline-inducing activity of climbing frozen waterfalls with picks and crampons.
The formula is a replica of the summer format - 3-day packages (from Friday to Sunday - between January and April), with 2 nights in a mountain hut or B&B, at prices starting from 390 Euro per person for half board.
You can choose from single-day excursions, to actual treks among the mountain huts using snowshoes or mountaineering skis, as well as courses in climbing frozen waterfalls. At the end, or during the outings, provision is made for lessons on nivology and safety: to learn to read a topographic map, navigate, and correctly use self-rescue tools with ARTVA, probe, and spade. All packages include the assistance of an Alpine Guide for the entire tour, any transportation, an informative kit, and evening events in the mountain huts, during which time the adventure professionals will cover the history of the surrounding places and mountains, mountaineering episodes, and aspects of Alpine culture, in addition to safety issues. The snowshoe and ski mountaineering offers are particularly complete, covering most of the Dolomites in Trentino, and the main mountain groups.
