Self-guided Adventures in Italy

#GODiscoverItaly

This is the perfect combination of exploring on your own, yet having someone help you plan a trip which is otherwise quite complex to put together.

-Mary Kolsrud

Whether you're hiking the Alta Via 1 across the Dolomites, pushing your limits on via ferratas in the Dolomites or cycling across the Alps, northern Italy is a hot-spot for the adventurous. The rifugios, or huts, in Italy not only provide a comfortable haven amongst dazzling scenery, but they also serve up heaps of delicious food. The south side of the Alps also offers more sunshine than the northern Alps, making this region even more attractive.

Via ferratas are our favorite activity in the Italian Dolomites, but we also love Italy as a destination for transalps bicycle and mountain bike tours. Of course, hiking hut to hut in Italy is a first-class experience and we guarantee you won't go hungry.
