Hiking in the
and be enchanted

Welcome to the blog







Hallo, and welcome to my blog





So, whether we want it or not, we need to get ready for winter. It’s been cooler the last couple of weeks, and we got our first heavier fall of snow some four weeks ago. It lasted long, although by now it retreated quite a bit.


We did some private hikes (the guiding-season is well and truly over by now) in spite of the snow, but since we left the snow plenty of time to settle and since it snowed only about 20-30cm this snow caused no real problem yet. We even left the snowshoes at home and enjoyed a hike through the most innocent kind of snow one could wish for: pure and completely untarnished.


I love this freshly fallen snow; it gives the mountains and the countryside such a calm appearance. But don’t let yourself be fooled: immediately after the snowfall or 10cm more of it and it could have been outrightly dangerous in steeper terrain.



Last weekend we hiked outside the Dolomites, just south of the Austrian border, and due to the snow, we were the only ones around. Fantastic feeling being around on our own – the world belongs to you. You become very much aware how you merge with nature, how one becomes an elementary part of it.


The mountains around us looked rather dramatic, and they were rather high too. We got a good view of Hochfeiler, the highest peak of the Zillertaler Alpen – 3510m.


On the way down we got snowgrouses before our cameras, can you see them? They’ve already changed their appearance changing their feathers from brownish gray to snowy white. Interestingly enough, they aren’t too shy – looks like they consider themselves completely camouflaged. Not for our eyes J. It took a while before they thought we got to noisy.

Hiking in the Dolomites

The Italian Dolomites

a most wonderful and mysterious place: rugged peaks and pinnacles that reach high into the sky with valleys deep below, sheer endless trails that definitely do point the way to heaven. A place full of history and legends, sights and sighs, joy and exertion.




Guided hiking tours in the Dolomites

Even for the locals, being up there is breathtakingly beautiful. Around every corner the looks of the walls and faces of these mountains are different every time round. It’s a never ending delight to hike across green pastures, through the midst of blossoming flowers, or dry, impressive slopes full of crushed rock with a faint trail leading up to the next shoulder: who knows what you can expect behind it? A trekking holiday in the Italian Dolomites is an adventure you'll never be able to forget.



Get carried away by the sights, by the possibilities of taking in one of the most impressive mountain landscapes in the world, by the energy that you will experience when you’re in the midst of the trails.

But be careful: if you like mountains, trekking and hiking, you’ll find the Dolomites addictive. So, why don’t you go and get a taste of it and see some of it on this delightful video. Hiking the Dolomites: the best way to clear your mind.
