A mountain holiday with flexibility throughout
On a Collett’s summer walking holiday in the Dolomites, you arrive in the glorious Alta Badia on the day you choose and stay for as long as you wish. Every day – except Wednesdays – you can join one of two breathtaking walks, both free and optional. One is a higher level harder hike, the other a moderate easier walk, rich in flora, fauna and beautiful scenery. There are also organised wildflower walks (June & July), painting strolls, World War walks, easy rambles and road cycle tours. Or you can do self-guided walks of any grade.
Simply choose day to day the option that takes your fancy. Or we can help you do Via Ferrata, glacier treks and various alpine activities. You can plan your days each early evening at Office Hour. Over a pre-dinner drink, browse maps and chat with our walkers, perhaps signing up to one of their walks or using their extensive knowledge to plan self guiding. As for your accommodation the options are excellent: two exquisite hotels, three delightful chalet hotels and attractive self catering apartments.

We did this tour in 2014 so this is a very late entry but for anyone thinking of doing this particular itinerary all I can say is - go for it, it's a fantastic 6 days in the beautiful Dolomites. In early July the weather was cool and snow was still lying in quantity; together with my wife's imaginative diversions we had what felt like a pretty adventurous few days. Needless to say, the arrangements worked brilliantly; Rif Biella (wonderfully remote) and Rif Laverella (Finish sauna) were hut highlights. The walking is tough in places with a few 'scrambly' sections but more a vigorous day in the Lake District than Crib Goch.
