Join us on our 7-day Ski Touring Traverse and you will make your dream come true. Tour across the most beautiful valleys of the Dolomites, skin up to remote locations beyond the reach of crowds, and challenge yourself on some of the most exciting descents that the Dolomites are known for, including the majestic Marmolada Glacier! But this is not all, every night you will enjoy the welcoming hospitality and traditional cuisine at local mountain huts and charming hotels, surrounded by the spectacular landscapes of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will surely take your breath away!
Our qualified Mountain Guides will accompany you for the duration of the trip and will show you the best that the Dolomites have to offer, while providing coaching tips to ensure that every descent is one to remember.

Our Ski Touring Traverse in the Dolomites is suited to intermediate skiers with previous ski touring experience that wish to get away from the crowds and enjoy idyllic days out exploring the most pristine mountain peaks and valleys, alongside towering limestone cliffs and high mountain plateaus. We have created two versions of this tour, one takes advantage of lifts and cablecars to gain elevation, while the other is entirely focused on skinning uphill, requiring a little work, yes, but definitely worth it!
