Dreaming of the Dolomites | September 4-10, 2016

South Tyrol, the northernmost province in Italy, is abound with contrasts: It is home to Mediterranean landscapes and the dramatic and breathtaking Dolomites, the towering and jagged limestone peaks that are part of the Italian Alps and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, you will find deeply rooted traditions mixed with cosmopolitan curiosities. Italian, Austrian, and Ladin cultures intermingle peacefully and limestone peaks tower like monuments over quaint villages, lush meadows, wooded valleys, and sun-soaked trails.

Join Muddy Shoe Adventures for 7 adventure-filled days as we explore the Dolomites and South Tyrol. Throughout the week, you'll have a classic adventure experience as you:

  • Hike through alpine meadows in the Alpi di Siusi, Europe's largest mountain plateau
