Dolomites Lodging & Meals
The hotels and lodges are almost all family based and have been within their families for many generations. They live and work there every day and have become our friends. It is similar to being welcomed into their homes, frequently we sit and chat with the owners.
The 4 star hotels have been chosen for many reasons: mostly because they are clean, comfortable, have a friendly staff and modern amenities. They are all in good locations, such as a vibrant village or have a great view.
Some have fantastic spa areas where you can enjoy and relax. Massages and beauty treatments should be booked once we start your tour. Many of the hotels have excellent chefs. Some nights we’ll take dinner in the hotel restaurants, where we know you will love the meal.
In a typical week we will stay at two different hotels and one mountain lodge. The experience of watching the sunset and maybe the sunrise while surrounded by the peace and quiet of these beautiful coral mountains is something you will cherish.
During our walks we stop along the way at Dolomites Refugios or mountain lodges. This gives us a break for a drink, or snack. In the afternoons, this may be accompanied with some delicious strudel. The Dolomites are a fusion of Austria, Germany and Italy cultures and the food reflects that and nurtures the palate.
The price of dinner is also included in the tour’s cost for all five nights. However, you are free to explore the villages and try a restaurant of your choice, either by yourself or with a group. Gary is happy to assist with any recommendations. After dinner there are bars, nightclubs and friendly pubs where you can meet some locals and even listen to some live music, or perhaps simply stroll with a fantastic Italian gelato.
