Hugh Thompson treks the mighty Dolomites
Author and adventurer Hugh Thompson recently strode out on our
circuit trek in Italy’s Dolomite Mountains.
He was blown away by the dramatic scenery, delicious
food and warm welcome waiting for him in the South Tyrol. This mountainous area
in northern Italy retains its own unique traditions, history and language. Hugh
also discovered the role these soaring mountains played
in the First World War.
