Our trip begins in the town of Dobbiaco, nestled amid the incredible peaks of the Dolomites.
Five days of cross-country skiing and one free day. Each day our leader chooses routes according to the grade and snow conditions.
We prefer not to specify in advance where we will ski each day. This is to enhance the flexibility and adapt to weather and snow conditions and to some extent the ability of each group. When choosing routes, the leader's priority will be to take in a variety of scenery and to ensure that participants become better and more confident skiers as the week progresses. Examples of skiing options: Along the wide valley floor east and west of Dobbiaco there is easy skiing for many kilometres - great for beginners. A little more challenging is the track that leads south to Cortina d'Ampezzo, a memorable route among spectacular mountains, passing under the triple rock buttresses of the imposing Tre Cime di Lavaredo. The Sexten and Prags valleys offer a choice of undulating routes in typical Dolomites scenery, with a welcoming cafe for a lunch stop. To the south the high Plaetzwiese plateau has some superb routes at about 2000m. Many of the area's cross-country skiing tracks are prepared for skating technique as well as for classic style. Grade 3 groups will spend most of their time on the tracks but will occasionally follow untracked routes in the Sexten valley.
