Holiday 2019

Below is an outline of the Proposed Lung Gompas Walking Holiday 2019 in the Italian Dolomites.  Expressions of interest must be returned by 20 January – see below.  The format is similar to that enjoyed in Erhwald last year, but on this occasion the hotel is four star (hence the high single supplement).  The village of Madonna di Campiglio (according to the Topflight winter brochure) is quite an upmarket ski resort and, in winter at least, boasts a number of Michelin starred restaurants, for those of you who are that way inclined! 

Key details

Destination: Madonna di Campiglio, Italy

Date: 29th June - 06th July 2019
