“A really brilliant holiday which combines leisurely walking with very interesting sight seeing. The scenery is awesome particularly with the backdrop of some beautiful Italian villages and towns. Add the Italian cuisine and it would be hard to beat this trip.”

“This was a great trip to a fascinating region. The snowshoeing and walking was quite hard but rewarding, with splendid views. The accommodation was basic but good. The food was exceptional. The guides were the best we have experienced over many group trips. There was little snow but the guides did their best to find snow and provide excellent alternative walks. We are told that this was the first time in 20 years that they had had so little snow.”
