Discover the Dolomites with Caspin Journeys

The spectacular Dolomites Mountain Range is a unique natural paradise in northeastern Italy. Dolomite rock is a white or coloured limestone formed by marine deposits and coral 230 million years ago. Forced up by tectonic events they were then sculpted into snow-clad peaks, deep valleys and lakes by retreating ice ages.

Enjoy landscapes of alpine meadows and evergreen & deciduous larch and spruce woods, dwarfed by soaring peaks and glaciers. In late spring and early summer anemone, pasque flower, gentian and the beautiful globe flower abound; habitat for ibex, roe deer, chamois; marmots, eagles and huge anthills.

Sleep restfully in quiet rooms in delightfully luxurious alpine hotels with a SPA, sauna and swimming pool facilities.

Enjoy the wonderful variety of Tyrolian cuisine, the atmosphere of mountain refuges and charming villages.

Our Dolomites walks are invigorating and among incredible scenery.

    The area in which we hike evokes such magical and fairy tale feelings. As we eat lunch and watch for marmots dashing in and out of the rocks, you can almost hear songs in the breeze.
