Hut to Hut
My holiday was a Hut-to-Hut Walk in the Dolomites, to which I added some Via Ferratas. Having booked all my accommodation for the eight days, the pack of information you sent me was very comprehensive. Consequently, everything went like clockwork. I wanted to amend my Hut-to-Hut itinerary slightly, to spend 2 days on Via Ferratas, and you were extremely helpful in arranging everything. When I arrived at Chalet Angelo, Rachel very kindly offered to collect my V.F. kit from the first Rifugio, to save me carrying it all the way round the Hut-to-Hut Walk. You couldn't have been more helpful. Rachel, your V.F. expert, discussed my proposed Via Ferratas and my hike generally and was very helpful. There was plenty of useful information available. I had a very comfortable room for my first night. Meals provided at the various Rifugios and hotels were excellent. I had already planned my route well in advance of arriving, thanks to the excellent information you sent me. However, there was plenty of additional useful information available. This was my fifth time in the Dolomites. It is my favourite mountain area - in summer or winter. Each time I have travelled with Collett's. I knew what to expect. Generally, the paths were fine and in good order, although there were a few times when a rock fall had wiped out parts of a path. Sometimes a bit of scrambling was necessary but nothing I couldn't manage easily. Your route Instructions were excellent. Keep up the good work. I'm always recommending Collett’s to people.
