One of the best holidays I have ever had. I was a little nervous about doing a first group holiday but this holiday was amazing. The group leader, Sara, was fantastic - very knowledgeable about the mountains, and many other things. She was very friendly and very interesting to talk to. The other members of the group were lovely people. The scenery was incredible and the walking was varied and perfectly planned. The only criticism was the dinner menu which was over complicated - would be much better to have 3 courses with a few choices. The breakfasts were fantastic.
Getting to the top of the mountains to see amazing views.
You need to be pretty fit.
I have just returned from a marvellous holiday in the Dolomites. Perfect weather, amazing scenery, 4* hotel, excellent company, and an elite group leader.
There were many moments during the week. Just being surrounded by the beautiful mountains and snow in itself was inspirational.
This is my 3rd holiday with Sara Bull as the group leader. She excels as a leader, always going that extra mile for her group members. On this holiday I was the slowest, but the guidance and support was always there from Sara. Thank you for making it a very pleasurable experience.
Do not hesitate to holiday with Exodus. They are very professional. Try something new and enjoy the experience, and the satisfaction of achievement.
Looking forward to my next holiday with Exodus.
The whole holiday went very well. Initially, snow was limited but that all changed on Tuesday when proper snow-shoeing conditions arrived. Our itinerary was flexible so that we were able to undertake the optimum walk each day to suit both the weather and snow conditions. Day 1 saw us walked up Monte Piana using crampons. On day two we ascended Seikofel from the KreuzbergpassPass using both crampons and show-shoes; lovely sunny day. Day three was snowy so we made our way to the Durrensteinhutte and along to Platzwiese using our snow-shoes once again. Day 4 was a rest day; we chose to take the gondola to Monte Elmo and sit in the sun whilst enjoying the views over the Sesto Dolomites, eating heartily and watching the skiers. All excellent stuff but the best was yet to come.......
Days 5 and 6 really were fabulous; some of the best walks we have ever experienced. On day five we ascended Lutterkopf and strode out along the ridge to the summit of Durakopf at 2275m. The next day was the stiff climb up to the gloriously located Rossalmhutte (2124m) in the heart of the mountains. The descent was enormous fun with some off-piste routes cutting the corners off the zig-zags. Two wonderful days in lovely sunshine.
Sara was an absolute wonder. She looked after us all so well and made sure that we all got involved and that we acted as a group without constraining anyone who wanted to go faster (or indeed slower). She helped us all in many ways and gave us the encouragement to get the most out of a wonderful holiday in a beautiful and dramatic part of the world.
Don't worry about crampons and show-shoes. Both are easy to use and there to help you. Essentially it is just about walking in the snow and ice and being able to do so safely whilst making reasonable progress in winter conditions.
The equipment provided is top quality and a great help.
Yes, it is possible but, as it can be a long journey, you will need to prepare in advance. Taxis will be very expensive but there are some public transport options available. Please contact the Customer Operations team on 0845 863 9643 for more details, and we can run through the best way to get there!

Even well established ski resorts have trouble guaranteeing good snow conditions throughout the season, but we have the great advantage that we can operate in a variety of snow conditions which skiers might find difficult. There is generally good snow cover throughout our snowshoeing season, but at times we may have days when we will be walking below the snowline. In light snow conditions you might expect to begin walking with your snowshoes strapped to your pack, then stop to put them on as we reach more consistent snow-cover. Usually April departures may be spring-like, with snow on the top, and wild flowers appearing at lower levels, although recent years have had late heavy snowfalls.

You should take waterproof walking boots or insulated boots with good ankle support. Snow shoes can be adjusted to fit any size boot, so you shouldn't have any problems.
