Win a seven-night hiking trip to the Dolomite mountains

Travel to the Italian Dolomites and hike First World War routes, explore the history and ruins found among the mountains, and experience charming rifugi (mountain hostels) with Dolomite Mountains Ltd, in association with National Geographic Traveller (UK).

National Geographic Traveller (UK) has teamed up with Dolomite Mountains Ltd to offer an unforgettable seven-night hiking trip for two.

Tackle a via ferrata (climbing route with steel cables and ladders) and hike the tunnels constructed during the First World War, enjoying breathtaking vistas and spectacular landscapes in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Beginning in the alpine resort town of Cortina — host to the 1956 Olympics — you’ll enjoy the unique charm of rifugi, as well as local family-run hotels. Ending in the village of Alta Badia, you’ll discover hidden military forts along the famous Alta Via 1 route, and have the chance to climb challenging peaks.

Dolomite Mountains Ltd specialises in tailor-made as well as set itineraries to the area’s most exquisite peaks and valleys. Using highly qualified mountain guides it offers a range of experiences, from hiking and biking to climbing and via ferrata.
