For more than a century the San Martino di Castrozza and Primiero Guides have been available for alpine free climbing, via ferratas and hiking on the Pala group, the Lagorai range and on other Dolomite groups.

The guides’ summer program is intense and varied and also involves activities suitable for any type of experience and ability, from naturalistic hikes within the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Natural Park to classic and sport climbing courses. www.aquilesanmartino.com

The Alpine Guides here are called “eagles”. Today there are about forty professionals specialized in all mountain disciplines.

The Alpine Guides are great storytellers. A day spent in their company counts not only as discovery of the territory, but also of their people, local traditions and customs. Guides are also always willing to give advice and suggestions to those who prefer to plan their own outings.

Hotel Colfosco offers its guests 3 free hikes per week with alpine guides and provides discounted rates for the other activities offered by the guides.
