Dolomites 8-17 September
main trip for 2006 will be in September
and, once again, we will visit the beautiful
ski resort of Val Gardena in the Dolomites.
Our base for the week will be the fabulous
Granvara Hotel, a warm and friendly hotel
with a basement health spa, stunning mountain
views and food and wine second to none.
We will leave England in the afternoon
of 8 September and progress through Europe
with two overnight stays en-route to Val
Gardena. A 6 night stay at the Granvara
and an overnight stop on our journey back
completes the 9 day tour.
Our time there will be spent exploring
some of the wonderful mountain passes of
the Dolomites, taking in the breathtaking
scenery so prevalent in this area. Cost
will be around £875 per person and
includes bed and breakfast at all hotels
plus an evening meal every night at the
Granvara Hotel. For more information and
