Winter holidays in the Italian Dolomites

Europe’s most beautiful winter wonderland

Snowshoeing, winter walking, downhill skiing holidays & more…

‘Young, jagged and imposing, the Dolomites are perhaps the most striking mountains in Europe. Although they are a stunning location for summer hiking, they are at their most sublime in winter.’
Steve Watkins, Guest of Collett’s and Author of ‘Unforgettable Walks to take before you die ~ BBC Books

Skiing the Val Mesdi

Santa Croce above Badia

The Italian Dolomites are perhaps the most beautiful mountains in the world. This landscape becomes absolutely magical when the snow falls. At every turn you will be struck by the sheer magnificence of these colossal natural monuments, whether you come here to walk, snowshoe, ski or just spend time in a real winter wonderland.

Snowshoeing on the Pralongià Ridge Ramble above Corvara

The backdrops are awe-inspiring. Skiers interrupt descents of tree-lined pistes or sit mesmerised on chairlifts. In the valleys, walkers and cross-country skiers gaze up in awe from winter trails, whilst snowshoers venture into the rocky reaches of the massifs themselves for a real close-up. Others stare from the sun terraces of mountain huts or village cafes with hands cupped around a gluhwein or a hot chocolate.

BBC books – ‘Unforgettable walks to take before you die’

‘Young, jagged and imposing, the Dolomites are perhaps the most striking mountains in Europe. Although they are a stunning location for summer hiking, they are at their most sublime in winter. Stepping into a pair of snowshoes might feel strange at first, but it will allow you to walk to parts of this snowbound wonderland that are normally reserved for mountaineers and extreme skiers.’
