What were the stand-out moments from your trip?
We always design our experiences to have multiple standout moments each day. The overall scenery is breath-taking and unlike any other mountain range on earth. Peaks appear from nowhere and follow no geological order like others, this coupled with an abundance of mountain pastures and wildflowers creates an extraordinary spectacle. In addition, the Via Ferrata network allows climbers of all abilities to access summits and valleys otherwise out of reach. And finally, paragliding with expert pilots along cliff faces and over glaciers is a life-changing experience.
Why should people travel to the Italian Dolomites and what can Pelorus offer there?
The Dolomites offer so much more experientially and culturally than you would expect. The food is a unique blend of Italian and Austrian with traditional recipes only found in this region and of a quality that is second to none. The history is fascinating, the mountains and passes are littered with old WW1 trenches and battlefields. The guides have incredible stories that bring it all to life, along with the black and white photographs on the walls of the mountain Refugio’s. It has a huge range of activities from hiking, climbing, via Ferrata, rafting, cycling, mountain biking, paragliding, eating, battlefield tours, local wine and the list goes on. The accommodation is world-class with 5* hotels, private chalets, very comfortable Refugios perched on top of summits, it does have it all. I cannot recommend it more for families, couples or groups looking to escape in the summer or as a skiing destination in the winter. I guarantee it will take your breath away.
