Dolomites 8-17 September

The DolomitesOur 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.
