24 Set Weekend on the snow for singles in the Little Dolomites
Holiday code: WRECO
A weekend for singles in the heart of the Little Dolomites. With our snowshoes, we will be guided by an expert for an unforgettable holiday on the snow.
Winter is the season of silence and the magic of snow-covered mountains. During these cold winter days, when the air is crispy and the sky is blue, we can enjoy the snowy landscapes following chamois, hares, and other mountain animals. This is a unique occasion to discover the silent wintery mountains: its meadows and woods are the frame of our excursions in the snow of the Little Dolomites. We can discover the animals in their natural state, and recognize the tracks of humans and time. The itineraries go through areas of beautiful landscapes in uncontaminated nature. We will go by Sentiero dei Grandi Alberi, the Conca di Campogrosso, and the Catena delle Tre Croci.
Friday: arrival in the hotel by late afternoon. Meeting with the guide and program presentation. Dinner together and a night excursion by the moonlight and the silent snowy mountain. Some mulled wine by the chimney and then we are back in the hotel.
Saturday: After breakfast, we do a snow excursion in the heart of the Little Dolomites, climbing up through the woods to Conca dei Campogrosso (1450 m). After a warm lunch at the refuge, we go back towards the hotel. Dinner with local food and free night.
Sunday: snow excursion on the peaks of Catena delle Tre Croci (1800 m). This wild but inviting peak hosts beautiful meadows and woods overlooking the valley. After lunch, we go back to the hotel in the afternoon. We then say goodbye and leave this winter wonderland full of memories!
Important: on-site transportation with own car. In case of absence of snow, the program will be converted into a trekking excursion.

The guide is a Naturalistic Guide or an Alpine one, an expert of nature and mountains. Their role is as guide and educator, for a deeper understanding of nature. The itinerary will be chosen with the rest of the group, although weather conditions may change the plan.
Recommended clothing: Snow excursions require good training, it is recommended to wear layered clothing. A waterproof jacket, a pile or heavy sweater, Ski pants (or summer pants with tights underneath and windbreaker on top), warm socks, trekking shoes (waterproof are preferred – no moon boots), leggings, backpack, sunglasses, gloves, hat, windproof and warm clothing to change.
Walking with snowshoes: the snowshoes are used to not collapse in the snow, the excursion is not as tiring as with the skis. On top of the shoes, there is a crampon that helps with ice and snow. To wear snowshoes, you can use trekking or waterproof mountain boots that keep you warm during excursions. The walks are easy and natural, they do not require any specific preparation. The guide will always accompany you and will adapt to the rhythm of the group. Snowshoeing is beneficial and distensive.
