Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa, Dolomites

Hiking and Trekking Tours in Italy

What you’ll notice as you trace the border of Italy, is you are also following the spine the of the Alps as it arcs north from the Mediterranean and then east. On one side of the border is Italy on the other France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia. And, if you travel these border regions of northern Italy, what you’ll find are communities bonded together more by their mountain heritage and regional experience than by their national identity.

The northern Dolomites remains strongly Tyrollean in character and the villages of Alagna and Macugnaga have more in common with their northern neighbors of the Swiss Valais than any other region in Italy. Our trips in Italy offer the opportunity of traveling on foot through these regions, sometimes crossing from one country to another, all the time experiencing the similarities as well as changes in cultures as you make your way from one valley to next.

Whether you hike the Tour du Mont Blanc, the Tour Monte Rosa , or our Dolomites Hut Hike you are sure to be captivated by the ever changing perspectives of these awe inspiring mountains, by the villages and hamlets that are nestled in their midst, and by the people who inhabit them.

I was very impressed with your (Distant Journeys) reputation in the Dolomites. That speaks tons for the company.

Any hiking trip in the mountains requires a certain amount of effort and proper fitness training will enhance your enjoyment. In the mountains, time and elevation gain or loss as opposed to distance, tend to be the determining factors when defining hiking grades or level of difficulty. We have done our best to grade our trips consistently, please contact us for further clarification. We are happy to offer names of past participants.
