With Up to 70% Discount for children at our chalet hotels* in August and Free Airport Transfers for children with fare paying adults, a summer walking holiday to the Dolomites is a perfect choice for a family walking holiday. A vibrant atmosphere throughout August with so much to see and do for families – active or not – and landscapes that will captivate the kids…

By Tom Collett: In August we took our children to the Dolomites for a summer holiday of walking and other alpine activity. We invited another family from our village with children of similar ages – 7 girls in total. These friends have helped us explore the Lake District on several camping breaks near Keswick. Naturally, we wanted them to see what all the fuss was about in the Dolomites. As the children were all reasonably accomplished walkers, we reckoned they would thrive in the mountains. And thrive we all did!

This was one of the best holidays we could have wished for and it was heartwarming to witness the constant ‘purring’ of our friends, as they took in the magical scenery on a succession of breathtaking walks. When we relieved them of their map reading and navigation duties, the children lapped up the scrambling opportunities and tried to capture the fun and amazing landscapes on their cameras. They loved the remote mountain huts that punctuated every walk and, even though we had good weather, hot chocolates with cream were always the order of the day.

Our guests were apprehensive about a chalet holiday but within minutes of arriving at Haus Valentin in Badia, they were grinning like Cheshire cats, overwhelmed by the view from the sun terrace over the village and its upland pastures to the spectacular walls and turrets of Santa Croce. Inside, they wallowed in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere created by other like-minded families and guests – whilst also benefiting from the unassuming hospitality and in-depth local knowledge of the Collett’s team, all of whom embraced the children enthusiastically. I would often come down to the bar after a post-walk nap and find them playing cards or board games with the kids.

There is so much for families to see and do in the Dolomites, especially in August, when the area is at its most vibrant. With Collett’s, the many options are well presented and assistance in making arrangements is always at hand. We did a lot of walking in beautiful weather, but we also hired bikes, went ice skating, tried the high ropes garden, joined a painting day and passed through exquisite Tyrolean villages. It was as happy, healthy, fun and wholesome as a holiday could be. The slideshow above is just a small snapshot of it.

If you want to inspire your children (and have a memorable family holiday at the same time), why not take them walking in the Dolomites this summer? With discounts and free transfers for the kids, it is an affordable way of having the family walking holiday of a lifetime.
