    Great introduction to winter activities

    This holiday is a great chance to try different winter activities - either so you can choose and then focus on your favourite or if (like me) you don't fancy a week of the same activity everyday. You do need a decent level of fitness and a good attitude towards trying and doing different things. The area is lovely and whilst snow is not guaranteed in the valley at the hotel, the downhill skiing slopes have snow canons, so you will be able to find snow!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    We snowshoed up a ridge at about 2600m on a beautiful sunny day with fantastic views across the Dolomites. This felt like a proper little adventure and the group enjoyed the ridge pretty much to themselves for the day.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Emily was great. A good balance of friendly, helpful and informative. She led the cross country skiing training and had a good disposition - helpful and encouraging but did leave you to practice and find your own level.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    You will get more out of the trip if you have reasonable fitness. You don't necessarily need previous experience of anything. Pack a "give it a go" attitude! Pack lots of warm layers. You don't really need/or get the opportunity to use a thermos or sit mat, so I would recommend leaving both at home.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The Hotel Dimaro is a modest locally run hotel. The food is plentiful and tasty. Don't expect too many frills - but it's perfectly adequate. If you blow dry your hair - take your own hairdryer.

    Dolomiti mixed activity week

    The holiday provided a very good mix of activities. My family spent the free day doing downhill skiing as we felt that just one day of downhill skiing was not enough. Our hotel rooms had balconies with beautiful views of the mountains. The dinners provided were substantial and generally good.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Reaching the top of the ridge on the last snowshoeing day at Val di Pejo after a very hard slog up, and being rewarded with a breathtaking view of the mountains around and the Val di Sole.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We found the tour very enjoyable as everything proceeded on schedule due to the hard work of our group leader Emily. The cross country instruction she provided was excellent; even better than one I had last year from a professional ski instructor in another resort.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Need to be fit for the snowshoeing climbs.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Unfortunately, as we went in early season, the snow was not thick enough. Our first supposedly snowshoe day became a trek on normal shoes ; and our horse sleigh ride became a horse carriage ride on wheels. Fortunately, there was sufficient snow in the ski slopes, and we enjoyed very good snow in wide pistes with no icy patches. The snowmobile tour up the mountains was also very exciting as it was done at night with just the lights from the headlamps of the snowmobile.

    Winter Multi Activity in the Val di Sole

    A varied week of winter activities in a less visited corner of the Italian Alps hosted in a lovely family-run hotel offering some great local hospitality and food.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Snowshoeing high above the Val di Peio in the Stelvio National Park with fantastic views of the snow clad peaks of the Adamello massif and the Brenta Dolomites.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Emily did an efficient job of making sure that the needs of all group members were met. She also provided good instruction on the cross country skiing day.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be aware that the snowmobiling that takes place at Passo Tonale doesn’t start until after dark - perhaps the itinerary would be improved if more time was spent at this impressive location.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This holiday isn't really located in the main Dolomites mountain group. Instead the Val di Sole provides access to more traditional looking looking alpine peaks. That said, I visited Madonna di Campiglio on my free day which is a great place to get close up to the very dramatic Brenta Dolomites.

    DOLOMITES WINTER ACTIVITY WEEK

    This is a great trip for beginners who want to try out a wide range of winter activity sports. The group bonded really well from the word go which made the trip even better and more enjoyable. The views of the mountains when snowshoeing were absolutely stunning, as was the scenery when cross country skiing throughing the forest. The Hotel Adler was extremely comfortable, the food was excellent, and the pool and sauna were a great way to relax after a full day of activities.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Sara Bull was a fantastic leader. She was extremely knowledgable about the local area and always recommended things to do on the free days. She was socialable and friendly and made an effort to get to know everyone in the group.  

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The weather was unnaturally warm this week and I didn't use half of the warm clothes I took with me, so I would strongly recommend checking the weather forecast before you go. A light-weight fleece, comfortable trousers, and a good pair of walking boots are essential.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    A fantastic trip made all the better by a very comfortable hotel, an excellent tour leader, and a great group of people!

    DOLOMITES WINTER ACTIVITY WEEK

    The trip exceeded my expectations in every way!  The variety of activities brought out the strengths within the group and our tour leader (Sara) was fantastic.  Would definately recommend this activity week to anyone wishing to give other snow sports a try.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing others in the group achieve when they initially thought they couldn't...I absolutely loved the Tobaggan runs (3 of them!).  The snow shoe day gave us the opportunity to view the Dolomites in true style - stunning scenary.  Having the opportunity to not just ski but also try out other sports such as x-country ski-ing and snow shoeing was amazing.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Couldn't fault her!  Sara was aware of everyone's abilities very quickly into the trip and recognised when someone was in trouble or injured slightly.  Nothing was too much trouble and she became one of the gang instantly.  I would certainly do another adventure with Sara as Leader...I have every confidence in her knowledge & capabilities to ensure the safety and success for others.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take a variey of clothing as the hotels & restaurants were very warm and you did not need to wear a jumper in the evening.  Have a go at everything...that is what the week is for.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    ...only that when you think things are getting tough...just say to yourself "yes I can"...and you will do it.  Throw yourself into everything...the Tobbaggan runs are fast, furious and fantastic! Thank you Exodus for another superb and well organised trip.  Here's to the next one!
