Day tours

We advise our guests to book early. We recommend that you fix a date for your tour at the beginning of your holiday. So, in case of bad weather, we have some spare days and you can postpone it. Approximately 3-5 days before your appointment, we then set the exact date, taking into account the weather forecast.
For a fixed booking we require a deposit of €100.00. Guests with a deposit will be given priority and a mountain guide will be reserved. Day tours can also be booked at short notice, but in case of high demand (especially in high season) and / or few good weather days in a week, priority will be given to those guests with a fixed reservation.

Multi day tours must be booked well in advance. Only remaining places can be allocated at short notice.

The start of the summer season depends on the snow conditions. Normally, the first tours at high altitudes are possible at the end of May – beginning of June. Especially after snowy winters, some tours (depending on altitude and orientation) are only climbable 1 to 1.5 months later.  The climbing season in the Dolomites lasts until the first big snowfall (usually around mid-October).
We are happy to switch to lower-lying and south-facing tours. In the early season (April, May) Arco on Lake Garda is a good place to climb.
You can get information about the current situation in our office.

The start of the winter season depends on the snow conditions. Normally, the first ski tours are possible between the beginning and middle of December. The ski touring season in the Dolomites usually lasts until the beginning of April, after which we can move to higher mountains.
For freeriding, the months of January and February are usually ideal.
The ice climbing season usually starts towards the end of December and lasts until mid to late February.
You can get information about the current situation in our office.
