Family Trekking

Hut to hut trekking: an unforgettable experience for the whole family

Description

In the beginning, the Holimites team was a group of young and good-looking singles. Today - even though we're still young and good-looking - we've got our own families. And, precisely because we know what it means to have kids, we decided to create a hut-to-hut trekking experience aimed at families that love the outdoors and want to share nature's glories with their children.

 

In order to participate, children must be used to walking in the mountains.

 

 

Length 05 nights

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What level of athletic fitness should the children have?
They should definitely be used to walking in the mountains because, even if the stages are aimed at their age group, the walks involve elevation gain and several kilometers/miles of trekking. Also remember that the routes are at high elevations, a factor that noticeably affects the effort required to complete the hike.

 

What happens if a child doesn’t want to or can’t complete the stage??
First of all, you must urge him/her to hang in there and keep on going! But, if the child’s will is stronger than yours -and we know how that is- don’t worry. All the stages are near locations that can be reached by car or by lifts, so all you have to do is call our office and we’ll tell you what the best solution is.

 

What if the weather’s bad?
In case of adverse weather conditions, just call our office from the hut you’re lodging in so we can reorganize the stage and, if necessary, the following stages, as well, suggesting an alternative daily program.

 

Recommended clothing:

We always recommend taking along a backpack with a change of clothes, windbreaker jacket, and a set of winter gloves and cap during the treks themselves. Even if the weather report forecasts good weather in the morning, conditions can change substantially in a few hours. If luggage transfer is also involved in your trek, we also recommend preparing warm clothing in the bag that will be taken to each of your arrival stages.

 

I want do to a self-guided trekkint. Are the trails well marked?

Yes, the trails are well marked, but it‘s important to pay attention and be sure to stay on the correct path. During the briefing a local guide will explain you every stage exactly.

 

The programs on the catalog don‘t match my expectations. Are there alternative offers?

On request, Holimites can customize a program for you. Is the tour too long or the stages to challenging? Do you prefer a different itinerary? Would you like to book some extra days to relax in the hotel or on a mountain hut? Just send us a request and we will do our best to meet your needs.

 

Should I expect to climb a Via Ferrata?

Our standard programs don't include a Via Ferrata. But gladly we can organize one for you with a certified IFMGA-UIAGM Alpine Guide. There is the opportunity to do the Via Ferrata during a stage or you can add an extra day at the beginning or at the end of your tour.

 

Overnight stay on the mountain huts...

You will be surprised of how lovely our mountain huts are. However, they have to be considered a rifugio in the mountains and not a hotel. So you won’t find all the luxury features you find in the towns.

In the huts there are blankets and pillows. We suggest to bring sleeping bags inlay with you.

All hotels and huts are well informed about dietary restrictions, like gluten or lactose intolerance. Everywhere you will find a vegetarian or vegan alternative.

Not all huts accept credit cards. So we suggest to bring some cash with you, to pay drinks, snacks or extras which are not included in the offer.

 

What about having lunch in the mountains?

For lunch you can stop in one of the huts to taste some traditional food or you have the possibility to buy a lunch package in the hut where you overnight.
