Indagare Tours: Biking

There are great trails, both wide and narrow, located throughout the region for those interested in road and mountain biking. Our suggestion is to bike from village to village with a guide and a small daypack. Road biking is equally as popular as the area is host to the “Maratona dles Dolomites,” the biggest non-professional road bike race in the world. Around 9,000 participants come to race on the first weekend of July.

Indagare Tours: Hiking in the Dolomites

There are no bad hiking routes in the Dolomites–each path you take will reveal scenic, sweeping views of these ancient, beautiful mountains. Start the day in San Cassiano and head to either the Passo di Valparola or Capanna Alipina routes, which both offers scenic views of the mountains and surrounding valleys. Head to one of the many traditional restaurants in the area for a delicious lunch and then head back to home base. Indagare can put you in touch with a professional guide company that can organize a wonderful day in the Dolomites, whether you’re a beginner or advance hiker. Those interested should contact our Bookings Team.

Via Ferrata Climbing

A Via Ferrata, meaning “iron path,” is a climbing route that is equipped with cables, chains, rungs and other fixed anchor points in order to help climbers reach the summit. Routes range from the simple and short to extremely challenging. All require a fairly high level of physical fitness and is a great way to try climbing for the first time.

Winter: Skiing

Cortina may be the most well known destination in the Dolomites. However, the best skiing is located just 45 minutes over the pass in the Alta Badia region as Cortina only has access to 5 individual resorts, none of which connect. The ski area accessible from Alta Badia is the biggest in the world with over 745 miles of continuous skiable terrain. Known as the “Dolomiti Super Ski Resort,” the area connects more than 1,000 slopes: Val di Fassa, Val Badia, Val Gardena, Arabba, Civetta, Marmolada, Pale di San Martino, Dolomiti di Sesto are some of the most well-known. You could spend weeks skiing a different slope each day without repeating a run.

WWI History

This region of Italy was the theater of some of the bloodiest and most pointless battles of WWI between the Austrian and Italian armies. In the surrounding mountains, large numbers of troops lived and fought for years while gains were never more than feet. The area is now home to some of the best-preserved relics of the Great War due not only to their inaccessibility but also the region's harsh winter climate. Historical visits can be arranged in both winter (via cross country skiing) and summer (by hiking).
