Dolomites trip

Saturday, 1st September 2018 at 9am - 9am Saturday, 8th September

Location: Dolomites, Italy

This event is in the past.


Our summer trip to the Dolomites. We will be staying in Cortina at a campsite we've used before and has all the facilities we need and costs around £10 a night per head. 

You'll probably want to fly. The closest are the Venice airports, which are under 2 hours drive from Cortina. Stansted to Venice Treviso is £71 and East Midlands to Milan Bergamo is £168 (Transfer time 4 hours 30 mins). We will need to hire a car if we fly, should be reasonable if we can stuff 3+ people in each car we need.

Contact Andy Railton if you are interested -


OK so I think that we've now more or less got everyone who is attending. Since there are people arriving at different days at the campsite to avoid completely confusing the campsite I would ask that you contact the campsite SEPARATELY. Of the 8 people who are flying from Luton and arriving as a Group, six are definitely staying on the campsite (I will book six of us on as a group Me, Zoe, Lizzy, Lisa, Pixie & Harper)- I will send you the six people an EMail telling them they are being booked on as a group, the other two people on the Luton flight may try and get accommodation off the campsite. The campsite we are staying at is called La Rochetta (Link: their phone number is +39 0436 5063. Remember if you DON'T get an EMail from me by 6 p.m. tonight (1st June) you need to contact the campsite separately. By all means ask if you can camp near the group of six, but please don't confuse them - I'm already theoretically banned for life from a campsite in Argentiere!

I will send out separate EMails shortly about gear, guidebooks with a little map on how to get to the campsite etc....I know some of you are completely experienced Alpinists so please bear with us if you think I'm teaching you to suck eggs.

As ever any Questions contact Andy Railton on 07894 533629.

2nd week for me as well, in Dolomites... Also the weekend before I am hoping to make the most of a VERY sunny bank holiday weekend for a big UK climbing adventure, maybe in Pembroke or North Devon/Cornwall. But definitely by the SEA! Probably heading down a few days early to avoid traffic jams! Contact me directly if you fancy organising something definite. There will probably be a Bowline trip anyway so might even hook up with that, if there is a beach involved!

To those that are going on this trip. I am only able to go on the second week. Direct flights from East Midlands - Venice Treviso 2nd - 9th Sept are currently coming in at approx £170.00 with 20K of cabin and 5K of hold luggage, 1st - 8th are NOT direct. This to me is a great price. East mids is in-expensive to travel to (unlike the London airports) and flying to Venice means a 2 hour transfer (Milan is 4 hours) it's a no brainer to me but I can't go it alone so is there anyone else willing to commit? My email address is tel no: 07855849528 I am more than happy to discuss any of the above to get things moving on this x much love.

Who's coming? See all
