“Dean and his team put together a fantastic trekking experience. The trails they selected were just right, with one stunning view after another. The hotels were first rate, and the food was amazing. The guides Tina and Matt did a great job of coordinating the transfers, handling the logistics and managing the schedule, all while keeping an eye on everyone. It was super fun hiking with kindred spirits and sharing the experience with them. Looking forward to future trips with WWT.”

What Our Guests Say

Travel Notes

We recommend trekking the Dolomites in late spring or early summer. This time of year is a little slower in the region, and the weather is spectacular for outdoor adventures.

This trip begins and ends in Venice, Italy. You will fly into and out of Venice Marco Polo Airport, Venice Italy.

* Many guests prefer to leave after, the scheduled itinerary. We can help you make arrangements. Additional charges for early arrival, transportation, lodging, meals, and activities will apply.

International airfares are not included in program pricing. When booking international travel, we recommend working with an experienced travel agent.

Additional support is always available by calling the Eastern Travel Office at 801.466.8811 or by emailing Michelle at michelle@easterntravel.com.

The benefit of using a travel agent is in the event of itinerary changes, the travel agent will find the best flight connections, and land arrangements, for you. Though third-party travel websites are convenient, we do not recommend using them, due to instability in the itineraries. We also recommend that you protect your flight with travel insurance and a refundable ticket.

In many parts of the world, gratuities are given in appreciation for a job well done. Our guides will take care of tipping service personnel along the way so that you don’t have to think about it.

For any additional services outside of our itinerary, plan to tip 10% (transport, restaurants, baggage, lodges, etc). We will provide you with detailed tipping recommendations on your ‘Trip Detail’ site once you sign up.
