Dolomites - the Covid era

The Dolomites in the Covid era - 2021

With the 2021 holiday season still a little difficult to plan for, the Dolomites may well be the ideal place for a holiday.

Italy coped well with the post-Covid 19 lockdown opening up period this summer with: 

  • the hotels, refuges and restaurants almost all open;
  • social distancing measures in place and functioning well;
  • walking holidays being a perfect opportunity to get away from the crowds and the risks that this can involve at the present time

In fact, this may be the chance of a lifetime to see even the most iconic sites in the Dolomites without the risk of crowds, as it seems likely that the mountains will be less crowded than usual in 2021, too, with some travel restrictions likely to still be in place.

Self guided may well be a good choice in social distancing terms but our trips are also available as customised guided trips and a tailormade programme of day walks may also be a good option.

  • The Panoramic Cortina Circuit: if it's comfort at altitude with breathtaking views you're looking for - and private hotel rooms making social distancing easier - then perhaps our 8-day Panoramic Circuit might be the trip for you.
  • The Marmarole Circuit: if a remote location and the paths frequently to yourself appeals right now, our 5-day Marmarole Circuit might suit - quiet friendly refuges and the peace and quiet of the Cadore valley are the order of the day here.
  • The 9-day Cortina Refuge Circuit and its 5-day version: for Dolomite icons the Cortina refuge circuit will tick all your buttons - some of the most famous Dolomite peaks in popular refuges, with this year being the opportunity of a lifetime to avoid the crowds which can otherwise be a problem in this specific area.
  • Or simply a customised package of guided or self-guided day walks from one or more towns might be what you're looking for.
