Designed for the avid walker, on most days there will be a choice of two walks, ranging from 7 - 15 km with ascents of 150m - 500m, led by experienced hiking guides on good paths (which are sometimes rocky underfoot).
The Italian Dolomites comprise a small section of the Alps and are renowned for their iconic peaks. These bizarre formations have been sculpted over the course of their 250 million-year history by wind, water and ice, and are an enchanting show of colour that magically changes throughout the day as the sun moves.
Slovenia is a country known for its breathtaking natural beauty - endless green valleys, limestone cliffs and sparkling lakes. We will explore the area of fairy-tale Lake Bled, Triglav National Park and the capital, Ljubljana, before we head to Piran on the coast. From our base here we will discover wonderful national parks, cliff trails with spectacular views of the Adriatic and beautiful beaches.
We finish our tour with “off the beaten path” walking tours in Trieste, Venice and the island of Burano - one of the most colourful places in the world.
