Itinerary

Arrive in the Dolomites

Land at Venice airport and have a private group transfer to the charming village of San Candido (4,298') in Sesto Dolomites Natural Park. Check into your hotel in the heart of the Dolomites, meet with the hiking guide and the yoga instructor for a trip briefing, and enjoy your first taste of the Dolomites' fresh regional cuisine at the welcome dinner served at the hotel.

Hike the Tre Cime di Lavaredo Loop

Begin the day with a yoga session outside (weather permitting). Then transfer to Rifugio Auronzo (30-40 minutes) to start the loop hike around the soaring Tre Cime di Lavaredo, a Dolomites landmark known for its three unique jagged peaks. On the hike, see the shapes mutate from sharp points to soft corners, and find reminders of WWI, including tunnels, bunkers, and barracks. In the afternoon, take a transfer back to the hotel to enjoy the spa or another yoga session before dinner.

Discover Lago di Braies & Dolomiti d’Ampezzo National Park

Wake for an invigorating sunrise yoga session and breakfast, before heading to Lago di Braies — a beautiful alpine lake set amidst forests and soaring peaks. Next up is a straightforward and steady climb to a high plateau with panoramic vistas, then on a well-trodden path following a scree river colonized by dwarf mountain pines. Soon enter the Dolomiti d'Ampezzo National Park, showcasing vast and marvelous views. Before long, reach your home for the night and enjoy an alfresco yoga session (weather permitting).

Hike from the Sennes Plateau to Alta Badia

Leave the rifugio and hike towards Rifugio Pederu (5,079'), then uphill in the direction of Lago di Limo. Along the way, take in a landscape dotted with small lakes and rounded mountain tops. Enjoy lunch at Rifugio Fanes, then hike south out of a steep valley to Passo di Limo. Continue through gorgeous high meadows and karst formations, and then descend to Capanna Alpina, a restaurant at the edge of the natural park. Enjoy another private transfer to the hotel for the evening, and a stop for alfresco yoga along the way.

Hike to the Santa Croce Sanctuary

After sunrise yoga and breakfast, take a short transfer to San Cassiano, to begin today's hike to Santa Croce sanctuary (6,709'), which takes two hours and includes several steep climbs. Pass tiny hamlets of ancient shingle-roofed farmhouses and see Stations of the Cross lining the trail of this pilgrimage walk. Find a scenic spot for a picnic, then descend to the village of Pedraces either by foot or chair lift. Transfer back to the hotel to enjoy a sunset yoga session or relax at the spa. Enjoy dinner on your own in town.

Marvel at the Views from Pralongia High Plateau

After breakfast today, transfer to Passo Campolongo. From here, hike to the Pralongia plateau to take in dazzling views of the mountains and the Marmolada glacier, also called the "Queen of the Dolomites." Have an outdoor yoga session at the plateau before enjoying lunch in a rifugio. In the afternoon, descend to town either by foot or cable car and then take a private transfer back to the hotel. Enjoy a Yoga Mandala II session, followed by a superb typical dinner in a farmhouse.

Explore the Cinque Torri & Lagazuoi Area

Wake early this morning for sunrise yoga and meditation with Tibetan bells. Today discover the Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi area; there are several options depending on interests and weather conditions. This spectacular area features majestic mountains and an abundance of WWI remnants. Options include: exploring the trenches and tunnels at the Cinque Torri area or hiking to Lake Limedes, Rifugio Lagazuoi — one of the highest rifugios in the Dolomites, or Rifugio Nuvolau — the oldest rifugio of the Dolomites. Back at the hotel, enjoy another Yoga Mandala II session and farewell dinner.

Depart from Venice

After breakfast at the hotel this morning, take a private group transfer to the Venice airport.
