Pin It

Italian roots intermingle to form an entirely distinct Alpine culture in the breathtaking landscapes of the Dolomites.

It is a region where residents transition fluidly from Italian to German; where white, Garganega wine reigns supreme and where the locals spend their winters traveling by way of their skis. As such, our routes will be well-marked by inviting alms – trailside restaurants that serve everything from light refreshments to full meals – where we’ll kick back, warm up and enjoy rubbing elbows with local skiers. Off the trail, we’ll experience the thrill of a two mile-long sledding hill, we’ll unwind at our accommodations’ relaxing spas and we’ll sample local specialties like strudel and speck, a cured, smoked ham native to the Alto Adige region. Join VBT on an exciting cultural adventure as we ski our way through the dramatic valleys and scenic plateaus of Italy’s Dolomites.
