)-- Dolomite Mountains, the experts in adventure travel to the Dolomites, announces the option to take self-guided tours in groups of two or more. This option offers independent travelers the freedom to explore the locale at their own pace and within their own schedule, and the flexibility to build a customized trip based on their personal preferences.
Travelers who enjoy adventure trips but prefer to not be held to a strict schedule now have the ability to create their own itineraries for exploring the breathtaking Dolomites while experiencing just about everything they could on a guided tour.
A few of the many activities that can be built into a self-guided tour in the Dolomites include:
Road or mountain biking
Traveling from Cortina d’Ampezzo to Alta Badia
Day hiking from a B&B “base camp” or hotel
Hiking from rifugio to rifugio
There is also the option to combine self-guided trips with guided day trips for things such as rock climbing or climbing a via ferrata. Guided tours can also be incorporated into self-guided vacations for one or several days, based on preference.
Guests have the option to choose from several existing self-guided itineraries or a customized itinerary may be created to accommodate specific needs or desires. Travel plans can vary from one week trips to more extended journeys. In some cases, guests can save up to 20% by choosing a self-guided version of a guided tour.
Upon arrival, a representative for Dolomites Mountain will brief guests on the specifics of their trip, providing detailed route descriptions, maps and variations for daily hikes, information on luggage transfers and alternate transportation options, as well as inclement weather instructions. Also provided is a prepaid Italian mobile phone pre-programmed with important contact information for trip assistance or in case of emergency.
Self-guided trips can be built to accommodate groups of any size, but for safety purposes there must be at least two participants. These trips are especially nice for families, since everyone can move at their own pace and the itinerary can be adjusted to make time for naps and meals. There’s also the option to split off into smaller groups (of two or more), and Dolomite Mountains even offers babysitting services to allow parents a little alone time.

And because they explore it every day, they have the unique advantage of in-depth knowledge of the terrain, including which sites and trails are best, based on individual preference and skill level.
