The small village of Villabassa, just north of Cortina d'Ampezzo, is the perfect base for this Dolomites walking holiday nestled close to the Austrian border and sandwiched between the spectacular, jagged limestone peaks. From here we enjoy an excellent choice of routes with the opportunity to relax in comfort at the end of a day's walking. During the week, we venture into the Fanes-Sennes and Dolomiti di Sesto National Parks for great views of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Historically the front line between Italy and Austria-Hungary during the First World War, the trails take us through incredible open-air museums.

Highlights
  • SPECIAL OFFER on room upgrades
  • Tre Cime di Lavaredo, UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Some weeks Challenging (level 5) 
  • 4-star hotel with delicious food, warm family hospitality and wellness centre
Food

All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners. Please note an evening meal is not included on the first night, as the group flights may arrive late into Villabassa. Sandwiches or snacks are available at the airport (the leader can suggest options). For breakfast, the hotel offers a large selection of cereals, fruit, cheese and cold meats, (along with tea and coffee of course). 5 pack lunches are provided by the hotel. Each morning there is a small buffet with items to make your own lunch (e.g. bread rolls, ham, salad...) In an effort to minimise the use of plastic and single-use items, the hotel provides Tupperware-type boxes and reusable cutlery.  There is a set menu for evening meals (usually 3 or 4 courses), which may include some local specialties such as Speckknodel (dumplings type of dish). Most weeks the hotel will have a traditional Tyrolean evening in the restaurant.

Location: Pragser Wildsee

The ideal start to visiting this vast area is a walk straight from the hotel through the very pretty, flower-filled Braies Valley. We walk through small villages and farmland until we reach the magnificent Lago di Braies, one of the 297 glacial lakes in the area. It is certainly one of the most beautiful thanks to being surrounded by jagged peaks that are reflected in the extraordinary mirror-like surface of the lake. We follow the route of 'SS hostages', the leaders of 19 countries who were freed after the First World War by the inhabitants of Villabassa. Approx. distance 14km, 650m ascent, 255m descent.

We start the walk at 2000m altitude walking amongst beautiful wildflowers and ascends to the summit of Strudlekopf (2307m). We stop at the Durrenstein hut in the early afternoon to check the local Kaiserschmarren speciality. On a clear day, from the summit, we can enjoy views of the Tre Cime, Monte Piana and Monte Cristallo. Approx. distance 15km. 500m ascent, 1000m descent.

Location: Bruneck

A free day to relax in the hotel's wellness centre or take a self-guided cycle ride around this wonderful area. Alternatively, you can make your way to Bolzano to visit a museum dedicated to Oetzi, the 5000 year-old 'iceman' whose remarkably well-preserved body was found in 1991 high on a glacier on the Austro-Italian frontier. Or you could journey to the attractive provincial capital of Lienz in Austria; or closer to the cosy town of Brunico.

We enjoy a memorable walk under the famous 'Three Chimneys', or Tre Cime di Lavaredo (or Drei Zinnen in German). Set amid one of the classic mountain groups of this area, our walk around these impressive peaks is certainly a highlight of the week. Approx distance 18km, 550m ascent, 1100 descent.

Accommodation: ,

Meals: ,Breakfast,Lunch,Dinner,

Location: Monte Piana

To complete the week, we take the amazing estern approach route up Monte Piana. After 600m ascent we find ourselves upon the flat-topped mountain surrounded by some of the most impressive scenery in the Dolomites. It is the site of an open-air museum dedicated to the First World War where trenches, dugouts and shell craters can be seen amongst the many alpine flowers. On our return, we have time to spot the brilliant blue gentians, alpine white edelweiss and bright saffron that create a beautiful scene around Lake Misurina, thanks to the beautiful pink of the limestone rock. Approx distance 15km, 700m ascent, 800m descent.

5* Memories for a life time
This was my first European walking holiday and I was very impressed with the quality of the whole holiday from the Hotel Adler and its staff who were very accommodating to our guide Alex and also the team at the office. I did wonder about food on holiday as I am a picky eater but all the food provided was delicious and more than enough. There is nothing I could fault on this holiday even with rain for 2.5 days of our walks we managed to do all but the last day of the planned routes and in my opinion it added a chance to see the Dolomites in a dramatic scene as well as glorious sunshine.

5* Excellent walking trip in the Dolomites
An excellent trip which I would highly recommend to other walkers. Each day's walk takes you to a different part of the Dolomites to explore and enjoy. Alex, our group leader, had very good knowledge of the area and could adapt our walks based on the weather conditions and was able to share his historical information with us. The hotel, Hotel Alder, in Villabassa, was a treat to come home to every night - the food was superb and the staff were very friendly. There were 12 of us in the group and we all got on very well indeed which made for a very good week.

5* Grade 5 Dolomites fun
We chose a grade 5 challenging week and it did not disappoint. This part of the Dolomites is incredibly beautiful, Tre Cime is one of the most beautiful places we have walked and we felt part of the landscape, almost swallowed by it's beauty and grandeur. Each day of walking brought something different and each was wonderful. Returning to the Hotel Adler each day made the trip very special as the facilities, the food, the accommodation and the staff are simply superb.

Exodus provided a very well planned and executed trip. Communication with Exodus prior to the trip was easy, and they were very good about answering questions.The guide, Alex, was excellent. He was very well informed about the geological and historical history of Northern Italy, and he was eager to share this history with us. Alex would be an excellent professor! He always let us know what the next day's hike would be like, and he would describe the hikes by his estimated degree of "spiciness" (one pepper, two peppers, etc.).The Hotel Adler was the perfect place to stay for the week. The Adler is family owned and staffed, as it has been for over 50 years. They were very friendly, warm and welcoming, and couldn't have been more helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the menu varied every night. The small dining room staff of 3 or 4, were there for every meal, and were very friendly, helpful, and efficient.Of the 16 people on this trip, all but 3 or 4 of us had traveled with Exodus before multiple times. Not only was this trip very well planned, organized, and executed, it was also an extremely good value at half of the price of other companies we looked at for a similar itinerary. I will definitely travel with Exodus again.

5* First Time Traveler with Exodus
This was the first Exodus trip i'd been on and it was my first solo trip. I had a brilliant time and felt well supported throughout the trip. Everything was organised for us, so all I had to do was to enjoy myself!The hotel is wonderful, with excellent food and a wonderful pool. I treated myself to a massage on the rest day which was excellent.The walks were absolutely phenomenal, every single day was different, some days we were climbing peaks, the next we were skirting ridges and the next exploring WW2 trenches!I literally savored every minute.

The walks were well chosen, giving us a good mix of the mountain ascents and panoramic views. I believe the leader provided good guidance on the walks however the largeness of the group and variable fitness of group members meant there were challenges for the leader keeping to the necessary timetable to meet connecting bus transfers etc.While generally the hotel was of a good standard, the formal set menus had restrictive choice and often had too many courses (up to 5). White table cloths and waiting staff in dinner suits seemed far too formal for a walking tour. Also waiting staff were run off their feet and worked extraordinaryly long hours. The evening where we ordered our meals provided the best meal of the stay. That said, every effort was made by staff to serve us as best they could.I also wish to highly commend the hotel staff for assisting with resolving a medical problem my partner suffered from in the early part of the week.

I did a C grade trip in september and spent an amazing week in the mountains under blue skies and sunshine.The views from the peaks were amazing, such incredible scenery! Really enjoyed all the walks which just got better each day. They were just the right side of challenging for me. If you've done the Slovenia Lakes and Mountains trip you will love this.The hotel was a really good family run one with friendly and helpful staff. Loads of choice for breakfast and 5 course dinners in the evenings. Also sauna, steam room, swimming pool and other facilities to use..

A wonderful trip which exceeded our expectations. Although very day was different, each days walk was better than the day before. The TreCime walk was probably the best day hike of my life!

5* fantastic mountains
Late June was a brilliant time to go to the Dolomites. We had variable weather, but plenty of sun to admire the spectacular mountains. This was my first "walking holiday", and exactly what I hoped it would be. The main draw was the mountain scenery, but I also enjoyed the hotel and its food service, which offered plenty of variety.There were 16 in our group, which meant the supper service dragged on quite long, but everyone was friendly and completed all the hikes.

4* Stunning scenery, good walking, enjoyable companions, great hotel and an excellent guide
It was a good holiday with an excellent guide (we came across Alex before in 2012 in Corsica) who shares his enthusiasm and knowledge of and for so many things. The group was large (16) but a good mixed bunch of people who gelled well. The walking varied and scenery stunning. The hotel was good however more choice at dinner for those of us who do not eat meat would be good - I did find myself eating the same thing several times/ having pasta for more than one course/ skipping a course (although I am sure the latter did me good!!). Breakfast was superb and being able to make our own lunch very helpful.

5* Fantastic Trip
This was my first time travelling with Exodus, and will definitely travel with them again. It was really nice to stay in one hotel for the week. I loved not having to pack and unpack, and I don't think we missed anything by not moving to various locations throughout the trip. (If we did, we wouldn't know it- the trip was everything I expected.) The Dolomites were amazing!! The hikes were challenging, and it was nice to come back to the hotel for a shower and great dinner. Our guide was wonderful. I've been on hiking trips for years, and this was the first time I've had a guide give short lessons on how to hike over certain terrain.

I so enjoyed the snowshoeing trip in February that I decided to revisit during a different season. This time I was travelling solo so I was slightly apprehensive as this was my first complete holiday on my own. I didn't need to worry though because as soon as I was met at the airport by the group leader I felt completely 'looked' after. The whole trip was very well organised with all walks being aimed at the overall physical ability of the group with additional walks offered for those who wished to exert themselves further. The views were spectacular - no words can really describe it, you need to visit for yourself.

A blissful week of exhilarating trekking and comfortable lodging. The trees were of very reasonable length and level of difficulty.

Every day better than the previous. The hotel was stunning and very comfortable offering a plethora of food for all tastes and appetites.

Wow! Thank you for being consistently brilliant! This is my 4th Exodus trip, and it did not disappoint. From the start, the Hotel Adler was a great base with great food and facilities ( you can never really go wrong with Italian food, and the Austrian influence added nicely to the mix).We had a brilliant guide with Karl, who is not only fun to be around, but very well informed about many things, in an area that is not just a beautiful mountain range, but a WW1 battlefield and part time filmset (think Cliffhanger).I've been very fortunate to go to a number of mountain ranges around the world, including Alaska Range, Himalayas and the Andes - however the Dolomites hold their own and are right up there with the very best.Despite all that has happenned around the world with Covid this year, it's great to know that travel is still travel and that we can still visit these places. Do not change the formula - every day hiking got better and better!

4* Classic Dollomites (Challenging)
This was a great trip...Lots of physical activity that yielded great views. Food included with trip price was very good...and when you asked nicely, you were able to order items not on the group menu. Hotel Adler deserves it's 4 star rating. Good location and loved the wellness center. At the end of a day of hiking the steam rooms were most welcoming...Not to mention the comfort of the bar. Our room had a terrace so it was possible to sit outside of our room as well as hang our wet items out to dry...As it did rain and we did do wash. Chose this date because it fit with my touring in Slovenia as part of the same vacation. Thought it would also provide the best hiking weather...We had bright sun the first day, a couple days later it rained and the next day it snowed and then it was sunny again. What a special trip. I have taken several trips with Exodus and this is one of the best for hiking during the day and comfort after the hike. Plus it starts and ends in Venice which makes it easy to extend one's stay in Italy.

This walking tour surpassed all my expectations.  Apart from the spectacular scenery of the area, the whole trip was professionally arranged and caried out.  Our leader, Karl, was just brilliant and really made it for us all.  I would rate this trip as right up there and would love to see it all again in snow!  Thanks guys :)The hotel was second to none
