Superb hiking and breath-taking scenery

There are few places in the world more beautiful than the European Alps. Soaring spires of rock, swaying alpine meadows and vibrant turquoise lakes paint landscapes that hold allure and excitement in equal measures.

It’s an area we’ve visited time and time again that never ceases to impress. From snow-covered French peaks in Chamonix to photogenic churches in Val di Funes – there’s nothing quite like the fresh air and calming vistas of the Alps.

We’ve hiked to the glistening Lago di Sorapis, circumnavigated Sassolungo and collected our favourite things to do in Summer. To help organise a fantastic week of hiking, our 7-day Dolomites itinerary has all the details you need to get planning your own trip.
