Snowshoeing in the Dolomites - 2016
This was our third winter in the Dolomites with Collett's, staying at the wonderful Haus Valentin in Badia. The fact that it's our third stay indicates how much we love this holiday - and this year did not disappoint. The chalet remains as wonderful as ever, with the fantastic home cooking from Reiner and his team every day. We 'upgraded' our activity level this year to doing all the moderate/hard walks - and really enjoyed them (although Wengen was a tough start on Day One!!). It was a small group this year, with only 15 guests in the chalet and around 8 of us on the walks each day - but this was actually perfect, and gave us all the opportunity to get to know each other. We already knew Chris and Rachel, the chalet managers, from our visit to Andalucia last year, so knew we would be in good hands, but it was great to meet the rest of the team - Emma, Mike, Seb, Sam, who were all fantastic. Plus the bonus of having Cam and Sam from Arraba with us for a few days. The "Lights, Cam, Action" round in the quiz is something everyone should experience!! So all in all, another great holiday with Collett's and we can't wait to book up the next one!
