Swiss-Italy Trip 2021 Review

Feedback from the trip leader

Swiss-Italy Trip 2021

Our trip began on September 5th as planned (or as replanned several times). It was the first Adventure trip undertaken in over two years. All members had to be vaccinated and complete additional forms for entry into Switzerland and Italy. But as daunting as it may have seemed at the time given the current pandemic, the trip was one of the more enjoyable trips the club has undertaken during my tenure as Trip Director.

Our journey began with two nights at the Birkenstock Palace hotel. A recent $500 million renovation made this 5-star resort located high over Lake Lucerne something to behold. It was a superb kickoff to the trip. I describe this trip as experiences in two different realms—from the snows of the Jung Frau summit and the Matterhorn in Switzerland to the lakes and boating on Lake Como, Italy. We rode Scenic trains, Cogwheel trains and Vernaculars. We hiked across a glacier at 11,000 feet at the Jung Frau, toured the ice cave, and dined at a mountain-side restaurant with stunning views of the Alps. Then we hiked down to Zermatt. We also e-biked along lake Interlaken with exciting view of the Alps in the background.

At Lake Como we toured by boat with views of centuries-old homes and palaces enjoying the warmth of Lake Como, some looking for George Clooney’s home. We stopped for lunch at Bellagio, one of the most famous towns on the Lake. The extremes in temperature from the 20’s and 30’s in Switzerland to 80 degrees at lake Como were certainly challenging for packing. But I don’t think any of us complained.

We did have one unplanned change to our plans. Italy decided, during our trip, we needed a negative COVID test prior to entry. Our travel Agent Pete Kovacevic simply rearranged our testing a day earlier in Zermatt rather than Lake Como as originally planned, which satisfied both the US and Italian requirements. Thanks Pete.

Our return to the states from Milan was uneventful except I think most of us slept on the plane, or certainly on the bus back to Roanoke. I certainly would like to thank all our members on this trip. Your patience as we worked through the details of the planning certainly made it easier on me and Shireen.

Berlin, Germany

Berlin is more than 775 years old and over the decades, all generations have left their monuments and landmarks in town. The densest array of sights in Berlin lies east of the Brandenburg Gate, on either side of Unter den Linden. In the city west visitors should take a look at the broken shard of the Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche, which serves as a brutal reminder of World War II. Close by starts the famous boulevard Kurfürstendamm.

Whether you are looking for a great bargain or hunting a unique gift, Berlin’s flea markets offer a relaxed shopping experience on a Saturday or Sunday. Browse through an endless range of items – from furniture to records and antiques – and enjoy the pleasure of making a great bargain while trying some tasty food from the market.

There are hundreds of parks and gardens in Berlin that offer refuge from the speed and bustling activity of a thriving metropolis. One of the greenest cities in the world, you can stroll through the vast central Tiergarten, enjoy the baroque grounds of Charlottenburg Palace Gardens or take a walk in the fashionable Mauerpark. A beautiful and relaxing place close to nature is never far away in Berlin.

Zermatt ski resort in Switzerland is considered by many to be one of the best resorts in Europe, if not the world. With the amazing Matterhorn looming high over town, Zermatt is certainly one of the most recognizable which fits the bill for many of the aspects that skiers & snowboarders are looking for on a quintessential Europe ski holiday.

It feels like you can ski Zermatt forever, with vast terrain and cruising intermediate runs that seem to never end. For those without superhuman fitness, thankfully many of slopes are intersected with fabulous mountain restaurants where you can have a lavish long lunch.

The views across many of the European ski resorts are fantastic, but Zermatt ski resort is in a class of its own. The resort sits at the foot of the iconic Matterhorn (4478m) and on the flanks of the heavily glaciated Monte Rosa (4634m). To say the scenery is incredible is understating it. Zermatt has maintained some of its traditional European charm with a preserved ‘old town’, car free all year round & with the occasional horse drawn carriage travelling down the cobblestone streets. The ski region encompasses 360 km of pistes. The region called “Matterhorn glacier paradise” is Europe’s largest and highest lying ski region. The snow-assured region has three varied ski areas: Sunnega-Rothorn, Gornergrat-Stockhorn, and Scwarzee/Matterhon glacier.

Zermatt skiing is big, but the terrain becomes gargantuan for a few extra francs to get the interlinked lift pass with Cervinia-Valtournenche in Italy. One would be remiss in skiing Zermatt without at least heading to one of Cervinia’s rifugios for lunch!

One of Zermatt’s leading hotels, the unique Hotel Alex enjoys a superb central location and is beautifully furnished throughout, combining the modern and traditional for a luxurious ‘boutique’ feel. Family-run for over 50 years, the hotel receives consistently good feedback for its gourmet cuisine, excellent facilities and high level of service.

Albufera is the largest lake in Spain and one of the most important wetlands in the entire Iberian Peninsula. A nature reserve of very great ecological importance, which is used by a unique waterfowl as a wintering site. Its rich waters explain the presence of fishermen and rice farmers since the beginning of time and this is how a delicious gastronomy was produced. You will enjoy a leisurely boat ride across a freshwater lagoon rich with birds and fish. The rice grown here is integral to paella, the famous Spanish dish that originated in Albufera. It is now time to learn how traditional paella is made during a visit to a local restaurant. Your guide will explain the recipe as you see how the paella is finished. This succulent rice and seafood (or meat) dish, thought of outside of Spain as that country’s national dish, actually originated right here in Albufera and is known inside of Spain as a Valencian specialty.
In the afternoon on the way back to Valencia visit the famous Oceanarium. Dinner on your own.

Sestriere ski resort Italy has one of the highest Italian ski resort bases at 2,035m elevation, guaranteeing wonderful snow conditions. It Is the main resort within the huge Via Lattea (Milky Way) ski region and ski pass which links Sestriere’s neighbors Oulx (Sauze d’Oulx), Sansicario, Cesana, Claviere, and Montgenevre across the border in France.

The Via Lattea gives Sestriere skiers access to over 400km of ski runs serviced by 70 lifts. For those up to the challenge, skiing the entire Via Lattea in a day is possible following the ‘Giro Della Via Lattea. Much like the Sella Ronda in the Dolomites, the tour will showcase the entire region and is reasonably well signposted and straightforward to follow. Start early though!

The Hotel Cristallo’s excellent position at the foot of the pistes and the spacious public areas makes it very popular. This prime location means quick access to both the centre of town where there’s over 100 shops, bars and restaurants and direct access to the impressive 400 kilometre ski area of the famous Milky Way.

This is a modern hotel that’s perfect for skiers wanting to be in the middle of it all with everything on your doorstep, as well as a hotel which will well and truly have everything you need. You’ll get a welcome drink on arrival and you can enjoy a few more at the hotel’s well stocked bar. Between 4-6pm the hotel offers free afternoon tea and biscuits, a great little snack to keep you going until dinner. Evening meals are taken in the Cristallo Di Neve restaurant. There’s a mix of national and international dishes, with most of the indigence sourced locally. As much thought and effort goes into the presentation as it does in coming up with the delicious dishes on offer.

If skiing wasn’t enough to get your daily exercise quota, you can hit the hotel’s gym with a few bits to keep you busy. We prefer the small spa though, chilling in the jacuzzi, cleansing in the Turkish bath or just sprawled out in the relaxation area – all included in the cost. Massages and beauty treatments are also available at an additional local cost payable locally.

Missed the winter ski season? Make u for it this year by hitting the summer slopes.

The last two winters haven’t been kind to skiers. In early 2020, most resorts shut down abruptly because of the onset of the pandemic; this past season, capacity restrictions made booking lift tickets so frustrating that many skiers simply passed altogether.

For half the world, however, this year’s ski season is just getting started. “This upcoming summer ski season should be a big one”, says Pete Kovacevic, an expert on South America for the tour operator Alpine Adventures. What’s more, since travel restrictions are still in flux, Kovacevic notes that many places are offering extremely flexible reservation policies.

Aside from the novelty of snow in July, alternate-season ski trips offer unusual fringe benefits, such as being able to combine warm-weather pursuits — golfing, cycling, even sunbathing — with time on the slopes. From the mountains of South America to the glaciers of Europe, here are the best places to carve out a summer ski vacation.

Chile

The number one summer destination for snow lovers, Chile is the choice of many national teams and World Cup racers for off-season training. The Andes are the second-highest mountain range on earth, with epic snowfalls, yet Chile’s top resorts are affordable and accessible — a little less than two hours’ drive from Santiago, which means you can mix world-class skiing with visits to vineyards, art museums, and, if you’re willing to go a tad farther, the beach.

Ski Portillo is a longtime favorite of legends such as Bode Miller and Chris Davenport, and the Portillo Hotel, at its base, operates like a landlocked cruise ship, with value-packed all-inclusive weeklong stays featuring great food, Chilean wine,. and even a disco. The country’s other big ski resort, Valle Nevado, mean while,. plans to open two of its three base hotels — the mid-range Hotel Puerta del Sol and the deluxe Hotel Valle Nevado — this reason. Chile is also rich in opportunities for those who want to try heli-skiing. Both major resorts offer on-site day-trip hell-skiing, and several tour oper-ators offer itineraries to various mountains throughout the country.

“Valle Nevado and Portillo are always hot ski destinations, and the most popular in South America,.” says Kovacevic, but he also recommends the up-and-coming resort Nevados de Chain, which has a new luxury hotel, tree skiing not found at its competitors, and thermal hot springs. Alpine Adventures also puts together trips to Ski Arpa, in the shadow of Aconcagua (the tallest mountain in the Western Hemisphere), and Corralalco Mountain Resort, in the Araucania region.

Argentina

Chile may get more attention, but there are several notable ski resorts on the east side of the Andes, in Argentina. Bariloche, a Patagonian city with Swiss-style architecture, is the gateway to the nation’s largest resort, Cerro Catedral, which has around 3,000 acres of skiing and stunning views of the glacial lake Nahuel Huapi. While there are plenty of accommodations at the resort base, Bariloche, just 30 minutes away, offers a truer ski-town experience, and it has one of the best luxury hotels in South America, Llao Llao, where the Obamas vacationed in 2016. Hotel guests have access to free transfers to Cerro Catedral and a private club at the base of the mountain, plus backcountry and Nordic skiing at a nearby mountain reserve.

Argentina’s other major resort, Las Lenas, is farther north, in Mendoza Province. With 14 lifts, a nearly 4,000-foot vertical drop, plenty of hike-to expert terrain, and night skiing (plus the highest casino in the world), this is the preferred option for adrenaline junkies.

In Getsemani the individuality and spirit of the neighborhood remain intact. You can come as a tourist but you leave as a local understanding what makes the barrio so special, engaging with the people to ensure that it preserves its particular charm. This neighborhood has shaken off the gritty reputation and turned to street-art as a way of incorporating the voice of local residents and artists into the fabric and the narrative of the city streets.

Introduction

Costa Rica offers some of the world’s finest whitewater rafting and kayaking rivers.

Wild and untamed, these big, brash rivers plunge through the spectacularly beautiful, largely unexplored tropical wilderness. Enjoy a tropical river with a skilled and reputable guide service, organized in 1985 to share the beauty and abundant whitewater of Costa Rica with the rest of the world.

The owners and guides have explored numerous rivers and participated in the Olympic Games as well as several rafting and kayaking World Championships. A commitment to high quality, safety, and exceptional service has helped them become the largest whitewater rafting and sea-kayaking outfitter in Latin America. Our outfitter has been recognized internationally for its efforts in conservation, reforestation, and education of the local population.

The Pacuare River is rated one of the top rivers in the world for a host of reasons. You’ll get to explore the intimate nature of the rainforest from the river perspective. The warm water, cascading waterfalls, and opulently lush rainforest with its brilliantly colored plants, animals, and birds make this trip exquisite for your senses. Add in the exciting Class III and IV whitewater rapids and you have a tropical adventure packed with rich experiences that last long after you’ve returned home.

Lake Arenal, lying adjacent to the Arenal Volcano in the Northern Lowlands of Costa Rica, is the country’s most spectacular lake. With the magnificent Arenal Volcano to the east and rolling hills and forested slopes all around, the scenery couldn’t be better. Add to that a number of activities that include world-class windsurfing and sailboarding, fishing, kayaking, bird watching, and more, and you have the makings for a spectacular destination.

Early in the morning, you will be transferred to Rios Tropicales Operations Center for a hearty “Tico” traditional Costa Rica breakfast, and with time to change into clothing for rafting, and shop for any last-minute needs in a handy outfitter’s store.

Nevados de Chillan

Located in Chile’s southern region, Nevados de Chillan ski area is spread across the skirt of an active volcano Chillan and is one of the few resorts in Chile with tree skiing and hot springs. The resort enjoys some of Chile’s best snow conditions with an average snowfall of 25 ft and a diverse spread of terrain offering something for all ability levels. Nevados de Chillan in Chile is great for beginners and intermediates, but the feature of this ski resort is the interesting off-piste terrain that’s come about from a history of rivers of lava flow (none of them recently). Nevados de Chillan is renowned for its great backcountry ski touring opportunities, and the resort also offers cat skiing and heli-skiing.

Nevados de Chillan is a bit more off the radar compared to Portillo and Valle Nevado so it is rare to find long lift lines and tons of skiers tracking out the resort. Unlike Portillo and Valle Nevado, Nevados de Chillan offers tree skiing (when the snow conditions are very good). The unique feature of this resort is its natural outdoor thermal pools and one of the largest spa centers. The resort is also the only ski center in Chile that has a neighboring town, Las Trancas with more of a local’s vibe and plenty of entertaining restaurants and bars. Expert terrain around the volcano is endless. While most of the resort lacks the super steeps found in Portillo Resort to the north, most of the area is un-groomed with countless options for off-piste and backcountry exploring. It also has the longest ski run in South America (8 miles and it’s called Tres Marias), and is the only one with direct access to the thermal pools.

The off-piste and backcountry terrain is the real highlight here. You can ski tour here for days, exploring nearby valleys, summiting the volcanoes, ski some serious verticals and at the end of the day, soak in at the natural hot springs.

And don’t forget what Warren Miller has always told you “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll only be one year older when you do.” …don’t make it two.

DAY 16: CAIRNS and OUTER GREAT BARRIER REEF

Enjoy Full Breakfast at the hotel. Wait at the hotel front entrance for your courtesy shuttle transfer to Cairns Marina from where you will depart for a full day cruise to the Outer Great Barrier Reef.

Michaelmas Cay was formed by the accumulation of broken coral, shells, and remains of calcareous algae continually washed over the reef by currents. Seeds deposited by visiting birds over time and the resulting vegetation helped to stabilize the cay. The formation of beach rock (sand and other reef remnants cemented into a rock by the action of algae) further stabilized the cay. The seeds carried in by the birds and the waves help vegetation flourish which in turn provides an ideal habitat for the seabirds to roost and nest. The Cay is rich with a myriad of sea life including green sea turtles (which occasionally nest on the cay), mollusks and invertebrates of all kinds, and hundreds of species of tropical reef fish including Humphead Maori Wrasse. The reef surrounding the Cay is especially renowned for its abundance of giant clams. The reef lagoon offers excellent swimming and snorkeling areas, quality snorkeling equipment is provided free of charge and the Marine Biologists on board can introduce you to a whole new world. For the more adventurous, SCUBA diving on the Great Barrier Reef is amongst the best in the world, both introductory dives for the beginner and guided dives for the certified diver are available, both incur an additional cost, and provided you have obtained diving certifications prior.
Guided snorkeling tours are also available (at additional cost).

In Getsemani the individuality and spirit of the neighborhood remain intact. You can come as a tourist but you leave as a local understanding what makes the barrio so special, engaging with the people to ensure that it preserves its particular charm. This neighborhood has shaken off the gritty reputation and turned to street-art as a way of incorporating the voice of local residents and artists into the fabric and the narrative of the city streets. Graffitis transformed this neighborhood in the last years, after the first Graffiti Festival in Getsemani that took place in December 2013. Our fully qualified English speaking guide will share his knowledge of the impressive history of Getsemani starting at the clock tower, from there, we go to the street of La Sierpe (where all the murals are) and Trinidad plaza, which has a historical, cultural, and national value.

On the beach of La Boquilla, we will see the two facets of the city, because, in one of the poorest parts of Cartagena, 5-star hotels and luxurious apartments are built at the moment. After arriving in the fisher village of La Boquilla (about 30 minutes from the Cartagena city center), you will get on the canoe and cross the mangrove forest and the lagoon Cienaga de Juan Polo. You will go through some natural mangrove tunnels (Tunnel of Friendship, Love and Luck). At the lagoon, you will see fishermen working. The perfect word for describing this gorgeous scenario is peace. The mangrove forest offers great flora and fauna. Among other things, you may see different species of birds and crabs and with a little luck, a coon or a green parrot may appear on the riverbanks. After the canoe tour, you will receive a cold coconut. Then, you will take a walk through the village and along the beach whereas the English-speaking guide will tell you more about the daily life of the people that live mainly of fishing. We will get to a restaurant, where we can have lunch and try the typical local dish: fried fish with coconut rice, plantain, and salad. After lunch, we can take a dip in the Caribbean Sea or relax on the beach. Transfer back by taxi. This experience lasts around 4 hours. You will have an English speaking guide included.

Your journey begins in Ushuaia, Argentina, at the pier. Board your ship in the afternoon and sail along the Beagle Channel towards Puerto Williams, Chile, the southernmost town in the world. Explore the surroundings before setting sail to Cape Horn.


After an overnight crossing of Nassau Bay, you awake in full view of legendary Cape Horn! Weather permitting, board a Zodiac, and be one of the few privileged adventurers to step foot on this famous and rarely visited island. Back on board, set sail towards Antarctica and cross the famous passage named in honor of Sir Francis Drake, the great 16th-century British explorer.


As you sail through the Drake Passage en route to King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands, attend an engaging program of lectures and presentations. In the company of expert guides, watch for wildlife from the lounge or from the outside decks. You may spot magnificent seabirds, such as albatrosses and petrels, as well as different species of whales on their way south to Antarctica.

Reaching the South Shetland Islands, sail in ice-filled bays while enjoying the company of seabirds, penguins, seals, and whales. Board a Zodiac for your first memorable shore visit to a penguin colony. Taking advantage of the endless Antarctic daylight, exploration will continue well into the evening.

santorini

Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. Crescent-shaped Santorini (or Thira), the precious gem of the Aegean, is actually a group of islands consisting of Thira, Thirassia, Aspronissi, Palea and Nea Kameni in the southernmost part of Cyclades.
It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the sea, small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles.

ITINERARY

Arrive in Alta Badia on your own (private transfer available on request) and check into your hotel. Located in a large valley surrounded all around by the gorgeous peaks of the Dolomites, Alta Badia is truly the “heart of the Dolomites.” Geographically in the South Tyrol (Südtirol), this area was part of Austria prior to the First World War. Here you’ll find unique mountain scenery with villages rich in natural beauties and ancient traditions, witness the simple everyday life of the local people (the “Ladini”), as well as the customs and traditions of the ancient Ladin culture. You’ll notice the street signs are written in three languages – first in Ladino (a neo-Latin language), then in German, and lastly in Italian. The mixed culture is very well marked not only in the language, but also in the architecture and cuisine. You will surely enjoy hearty meals that are representative of the incredible diversity of this region! Alta Badia is located between 1,400 and 2,700 meters (4,593-8,858′) above sea level and this altitude ensures optimal ski conditions throughout the winter, and offers breathtaking views of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites. Fast and comfortable ski lift connections, miles of wide, well-groomed slopes (130km / 81 miles), and the spaciousness of the ski area allow you to enjoy pleasant and safe skiing days. Charming mountain huts and first class mountain restaurants round out the appeal, making Alta Badia a ski area for connoisseurs.

Hotel in Alta Badia
Dinner

After breakfast meet your local English speaking UIAGM/IFMGA professional ski guide for a trip briefing, equipment check, and rent any equipment (if needed).
During your trip, we will provide you with a Dolomite Mountains duffel bag. You can pack the belongings you require for the nights where you will be staying away from your hotel in this duffel, and leave the rest of your luggage stored at your hotel. Your first ski day begins on the slopes of Alta Badia and Val Gardena.
From December to April each year, this marvelous region invites all winter sports enthusiasts to explore its innumerable pistes and descents. Efficient modern lift systems ensure a comfortable ski holiday in Val Gardena / Alpe di Siusi, world-renowned for its champions. Continue the loop around the famous Sella Massif reaching Val di Fassa. In winter, Val di Fassa drives ski and snowboard fans just crazy. In addition to the Sellaronda, 3 ski tours, 5 snow parks, the 230 kilometers (142.9 miles) of ski slopes are always in perfect conditions thanks to the advanced snowmaking system, and served by 87 up-to-date lifts that guarantee a fast and effective transportation to the highest altitudes.

Rifugio
Breakfast
Dinner

After breakfast, ski towards the town of Arabba to reach the ski area of the Marmolada. This imposing mountain dividing the region of the Bellunese from the region of Trentino, reaches a height of 3,342 meters (10,965′) – the highest in the Dolomites. It is also one of the most scenic of the Dolomites, and home to her largest remaining glacier. The ski runs are well groomed and run down the glacier towards the valley. The highest point of the ski area is also the starting point of one of the most beautiful ski runs of the Alps: La Bellunese. The Marmolada ski area offers wonderful intermediate and high difficulty ski slopes on the glacier, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes that will make your ski day on the Queen of the Dolomites an unforgettable experience.

Rifugio
Breakfast
Dinner

Ski to Malga Ciapela at the bottom of the glacier and take a public bus to Alleghe (not included). Spend the day skiing at the Civetta ski resort. Surrounded by plenty of majestic peaks and unobstructed views, the valleys of Alleghe, Selva di Cadore, Zoldo, and Palafavera on Monte Civetta are rich in history and tradition. This area became famous during the 19th century, during the final century of the Venetian Doges, when the first winter guests discovered the imposing beauty and timeless charm of Monte Civetta, and in particular Monte Pelmo – known as “God’s Throne.”At the end of the day the owner of your next rifugio will pick you up and bring you to the mountain inn by van (about 15 minute transfer).

Rifugio
Breakfast
Dinner

You’ll start the day with a short transfer to the slopes of the Civetta area. Ski down to the locality Pescul and catch the ski bus to reach Passo Giau. Enjoy the rest of the day in the Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi ski area. In winter, the ski slopes of the Lagazuoi – 5 Torri – Giau area are always perfect, thanks to the favorable exposure, and to the use of artificial snow when necessary. The slopes are easy to moderate, and all are immensely satisfying. Facing the Lagazuoi Massif, the Gallina Ridge is a paradise for children, with slopes that are also suitable for beginners. At the end of your skiing day, take the Lagazuoi cable car from the Falzarego Pass, which arrives at an altitude of 2,800 meters (9,186′) in only three minutes! From the top, enjoy the breathtaking panorama from the terrace of the Rifugio Lagazuoi, famous throughout the world for its spectacular views of the Dolomite peaks, and your home for tonight.

Rifugio
Breakfast
Dinner

With its 8.5 kilometers (5.2 miles) and magical scenery, the Armentarola is without doubt one of the most fascinating slopes in the Dolomites, and one of the most beautiful ski runs in the world. It unfolds along the foot of the imposing Fanes mountain, in an enchanting fairy-tale valley surrounded by majestic castles of rock and frozen waterfalls, making this magical descent an endless flow of thrills and surprises. And just like in the fairytales, the run ends with a horse-drawn lift (not included) from where you can do it all again, or move on to another fabulous adventure. Spend your last ski day in the area of Alta Badia, and finally settle in your hotel and enjoy a last dinner in the Dolomites.

ITINERARY

 

Arrive in Cortina d’Ampezzo on your own (private transfer available on request). Cortina d’Ampezzo is a charming alpine resort town surrounded by stunning peaks, uniquely sheltered from the cold winds of the north, giving it a pleasantly mild climate that tourists can enjoy year-round. Host to the 1956 Winter Olympics, Cortina enjoys a reputation for great skiing in winter, and in the summer attracts hikers and climbers who challenge the rocky faces of the nearby mountains. This chic Alpine town also caters to the high society crowd, offering many year-round social activities, shopping, and fine dining. Dinner included at a traditional restaurant in the area.

INCLUDED:
Hotel in Cortina d’Ampezzo 4 Stars

Faloria and Cristallo Ski Areas In the morning, meet your local English speaking UIAGM/IFMGA Professional Ski Guide for a trip briefing and to receive your lift passes. You will also receive a duffel bag to be packed with your belongings for the two nights spent at rifugios (1 per room).

Today you will discover the resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo, with its 140 kilometers (87 miles) of slopes and 42 lifts, well known all over the world also as host to the first ever televised Winter Olympics in 1956. This area offers some of the most exhilarating and beautiful alpine ski runs in the world.

Ski in the Faloria and Cristallo areas of Cortina, and feel the excitement of being completely surrounded by a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Choose from 24 pistes (5 black runs, 11 red runs, 8 blue runs) with a total of 44 kilometers (27.3 miles). In good weather, there are stunning views over the Ampezzo Valley, including down to the town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, and across to the Cinque Torri peaks and the Tofana area.

Begin your ski day in the Tofane area. 30 pistes (6 black runs, 12 red runs, 13 blue runs and 6 green runs) with a total of 29,2 miles. From the beginners’ slopes of the lower area you can quickly reach the technically very demanding pistes such as the ‘Canalone’ and the famous Schuss.

The Freccia nel Cielo cable-car takes you up to a height of 8,202′ to the Ra Valles area. If you take the Skitour Olympia route, you can venture onto the unforgettable peaks of the 1956 Olympic races, which today host the Women’s Skiing World Cup. But if you’re an expert skier and looking for an adrenaline rush, try the black run ‘Vertigine Bianca’: because of its steepness, it’s one of the two slopes in Cortina that never get bashed.

In the afternoon take a private transfer to enjoy the slopes at Mount Lagazuoi and Cinque Torri (Five Towers) area, whose characteristic profile isn’t comprised of just 5 towers, but by a mass of secondary boulders, fractured towers and peaks sprinkled liberally across the entire area. These peaks are located to the west of Cortina on a grassy hillock just above the tree line at circa 7,218′.

In the morning take a private transfer to the Civetta ski area.

Surrounded by plenty of uncontaminated views and majestic peaks, the valleys of Alleghe, Selva di Cadore, Zoldo, and Palafavera of Monte Civetta are rich in history and tradition. This area became famous during the 19th century, during the final century of the Venetian Doges, when the first winter guests discovered the imposing beauty and timeless charm of Monte Civetta and in particular Monte Pelmo – known as “God’s Throne.” On the slopes of these two giants surrounded by the Sella Group, the Tofane Massifs and the imposing Marmolada, you will find the largest ski district in the Veneto region. The Ski Civetta area offers a wide range of slopes and attracts skiers of all levels, for a total of 80km / 49,7 miles and 23 lifts.

In the afternoon, for the second part of your day, take a private transfer to Falcade and ski the area of Passo San Pellegrino: more than 60 kilometers (37 miles) of slopes spread out at altitudes between 1,918 and 2,513 meters (6,293-8,245′), all equipped with 26 cutting edge lift systems.

At the end of your skiing day, a snow-cat will pick you up from the main road and take you to your rifugio (1,980m / 6,496′) for the night.

Breakfast, Dinner

The time has come to ski a portion of the Sellaronda circuit, one of the most spectacular circuits of the world, circumnavigating the Sella Massif. Considered somewhat of a “merry-go-round” for intermediate level skiers, this unique circular connection of lifts and runs was once the only way the ancient inhabitants of the Ladin villages could maintain a connection with each other.

Nowadays it’s a modern-day carousel that connects four Dolomite passes, four Ladin valleys (Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Val di Fassa, and Livinallongo), and three districts – you’ll have the opportunity to see more of the Dolomites in one day than many see on an entire trip! Although the Sellaronda is a relatively short tour that can be easily done in one day, with a length of just under 40 kilometers (25 miles), 26 of which are ski slopes (16 miles), but requiring approximately 2 hours of ski lift travel time and high elevations, you will begin the tour in the morning to ensure ample time for completion before lift service closes for the day.

Located in a large valley surrounded all around by the gorgeous peaks of the Dolomites, Alta Badia is truly the “heart of the Dolomites.” Geographically in the South Tyrol (Südtirol), this area was part of Austria prior to the First World War. Here you’ll find unique mountain scenery with villages rich in natural beauties and ancient traditions, witness the simple everyday life of the local people (the “Ladini”), as well as the customs and traditions of the ancient Ladin culture.

The thrills are everywhere at Park City. Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, sledding, laughing, screaming.

Park City Mountain Village

Nestled at 6,900 feet above sea level, the Park City mountain village was developed when the first ski lift was constructed over 50 years ago in 1963.
Since then, many changes and events have taken place to re-write Park City’s future as a top-ten ski destination—including hosting the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and more recently, the creation of the largest ski resort in the United States.

For quick access to our fantastic learning terrain, or to lay first tracks in the deep powder of Jupiter and McConkey’s bowls, you’ll want to book your lodging near the Park City mountain village.

Park City Town

Main Street provides an array of nightlife, restaurants, and lodging options. Park City Mountain Central Reservations is your one-stop-shop for booking your vacation.

Park City is the only resort with lift access directly to the town’s historic Main Street. You can ski or ride down Quit’N Time or Creole runs to the multitude of shops, restaurants, bars, and galleries that give Park City its authentic mining town look and feel. And with ski-in/ski-out access to the resort, you can access the largest ski resort in North America directly from Main Street.

Just steps away from the slopes, with its intimate lobby, rooftop hot tub, outdoor heated pool, exercise room and ruggedly elegant atmosphere, sits The Sundial Lodge. Rising five stories above the heart of Canyons Village, the Sundial Lodge is in the center of all the action.

From sunrise to sundown and beyond, Sundial Lodge is Canyons Village at its best. Inspired by Utah’s grand mountain lodges and its unmistakable landscape, Sundial Lodge defines the essence of Canyons Village. Located just steps from the Red Pine Gondola, this property offers guest room accommodations including individual hotel rooms, studios, and 1-2 bedroom suites.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES IN PARK CITY AND DEER VALLEY

Take in the absolute best views of Park City with a hot air balloon ride high above the town. Gaze out over Kamas Valley as you ascend thousands of feet into the sky with the Wasatch Mountains forming a rugged skyline to the west and the streets of Park City gradually getting smaller and smaller. It’s a smooth ride to the top where quiet contemplation awaits.

With the balloon fully inflated and the colorful panels of fabric standing at attention, it’s time for your flight. The ascension to the sky will take place gradually. So gentle is the rise that you might be 1,000 feet up in the air before you notice the height you’ve climbed. Because of this, hot air balloon rides are recommended even for those with a fear of heights—as long as they are not in a state of panic—and some have even cited the experience as helpful in overcoming this fear.

During winter, the snow-capped mountains and frost-covered land is a magnificent sight to behold. Come spring, the green of new life begins to emerge and you can see both snow and defrosted forests. Summertime typically offers clear blue skies and green landscapes as far as the eye can see. Once fall has set in, the view is dotted with trees turning autumnal hues of orange, red, and yellow.

Autumn Aloft

Park City is so ideal for hot air ballooning that the town even hosts a yearly event dedicated to recreation. Every September, a weekend is set aside to appreciate these colorful giants during Autumn Aloft. Balloonists come from all over the world to show off their special hot air balloons and you never know what shape they might take, from frogs and owls to rainbow-colored marvels.

If you’re looking for a unique activity to add to your Park City adventure, hot air ballooning is for you!

Enjoy easy access to fifteen golf courses

You can golf in Park City the same day you fly in. It’s true. Park City golf courses are less than an hour away from Salt Lake City International Airport. The hard part is deciding which Park City golf course you should play first. Park City and the surrounding area are home to seven public and eight private courses.

Once you’ve chosen a course – perhaps one designed by William Neff or a Rees Jones championship course, or local Park City Golf Club, your next challenge will be to master the art of hiding your shock over how much further your ball soars. Go ahead and tout the bragging rights of your improved game to friends back home. We’ll keep your secret about how mountain location actually adds distance to your shot. And it certainly doesn’t hurt your game when you play in summer temperatures that are generally milder than many other golf destinations.

When an idyllic, vista-filled day of Park City golfing is over, reward your hard work on the course with Park City’s endless options for mouthwatering cuisine and refreshing libations on Historic Main Street and throughout town. Again, more decisions. But you can’t go wrong here.

While the trails in Park City are full of runners and cyclists, horseback riders in Park City know that one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful mountain vistas is from the seat of a saddle.

The horses stabled by Park City guides are kind, responsive, and emotional creatures. Plus, they love to go out on the mountain trails having made the journey countless times. Even if you have limited horseback riding experience, you can and find a stable and tour that will allow you to get the most out of Park City’s spectacular terrain.

Summer means you’ll get a whisk of cool mountain air from atop your horse and a great view of meadows full of wildflowers and sublime mountain peaks. You may even see a grazing deer or elk during your traverse through the wilderness.

With thousands of square acreage throughout the valley, some might go a lifetime on horseback and never see the same spot twice. So bring your curiosity and your love of animals to the wild West and take life by the reins.

River Rafting and Tubing in Park City

Park City has plenty to offer thrill seekers and adventurers who are ready for some action. Want to race through the mountain terrain or soar high above canyons and rivers? You can take a wild ride on Park City’s Alpine Coaster, sign up for a zipline tour, or race downhill in a bobsled.

Bobsledding on the 2002 Winter Olympics Track
Have you ever imagined being an Olympic athlete? At Comet Bobsled, you can feel like a true Olympian on the very same track where the bobsled, luge, and skeleton events were held during the 2002 Winter Olympics.
The bobsleds are modified to roll down the concrete surface of the track and can fit three passengers. You’ll be piloted by a professional bobsledder as you race down the twists and turns at speeds of up to 60 mph. This ultimate bobsled experience is perfect for adrenaline junkies and Olympics fans alike.

Incredible Zipline Adventure Tours in Park City
With its flowing rivers and rugged mountain peaks, Park City is a popular destination for ziplining.

Park City’s Alpine Coaster
Mountains meet amusement park with Park City’s amazing Alpine Coaster, a thrilling and unique ride you must experience. The coaster features an elevated track that twists and turns over a mile of loops, curves, and turns, offering spectacular views of mountain scenery. Each car can fit two passengers, and you are responsible for driving the car over the track. If racing downhill through fields and mountain terrain appeals to you, then you don’t want to miss the Alpine Coaster.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES IN PARK CITY AND DEER VALLEY

Take in the absolute best views of Park City with a hot air balloon ride high above the town. Gaze out over Kamas Valley as you ascend thousands of feet into the sky with the Wasatch Mountains forming a rugged skyline to the west and the streets of Park City gradually getting smaller and smaller. It’s a smooth ride to the top where quiet contemplation awaits.

With the balloon fully inflated and the colorful panels of fabric standing at attention, it’s time for your flight. The ascension to the sky will take place gradually. So gentle is the rise that you might be 1,000 feet up in the air before you notice the height you’ve climbed. Because of this, hot air balloon rides are recommended even for those with a fear of heights—as long as they are not in a state of panic—and some have even cited the experience as helpful in overcoming this fear.

During winter, the snow-capped mountains and frost-covered land is a magnificent sight to behold. Come spring, the green of new life begins to emerge and you can see both snow and defrosted forests. Summertime typically offers clear blue skies and green landscapes as far as the eye can see. Once fall has set in, the view is dotted with trees turning autumnal hues of orange, red, and yellow.

Autumn Aloft

Park City is so ideal for hot air ballooning that the town even hosts a yearly event dedicated to recreation. Every September, a weekend is set aside to appreciate these colorful giants during Autumn Aloft. Balloonists come from all over the world to show off their special hot air balloons and you never know what shape they might take, from frogs and owls to rainbow-colored marvels.

If you’re looking for a unique activity to add to your Park City adventure, hot air ballooning is for you!

Enjoy easy access to fifteen golf courses

You can golf in Park City the same day you fly in. It’s true. Park City golf courses are less than an hour away from Salt Lake City International Airport. The hard part is deciding which Park City golf course you should play first. Park City and the surrounding area are home to seven public and eight private courses.

Once you’ve chosen a course – perhaps one designed by William Neff or a Rees Jones championship course, or local Park City Golf Club, your next challenge will be to master the art of hiding your shock over how much further your ball soars. Go ahead and tout the bragging rights of your improved game to friends back home. We’ll keep your secret about how mountain location actually adds distance to your shot. And it certainly doesn’t hurt your game when you play in summer temperatures that are generally milder than many other golf destinations.

When an idyllic, vista-filled day of Park City golfing is over, reward your hard work on the course with Park City’s endless options for mouthwatering cuisine and refreshing libations on Historic Main Street and throughout town. Again, more decisions. But you can’t go wrong here.

While the trails in Park City are full of runners and cyclists, horseback riders in Park City know that one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful mountain vistas is from the seat of a saddle.

The horses stabled by Park City guides are kind, responsive, and emotional creatures. Plus, they love to go out on the mountain trails having made the journey countless times. Even if you have limited horseback riding experience, you can and find a stable and tour that will allow you to get the most out of Park City’s spectacular terrain.

Summer means you’ll get a whisk of cool mountain air from atop your horse and a great view of meadows full of wildflowers and sublime mountain peaks. You may even see a grazing deer or elk during your traverse through the wilderness.

With thousands of square acreage throughout the valley, some might go a lifetime on horseback and never see the same spot twice. So bring your curiosity and your love of animals to the wild West and take life by the reins.

Experienced a variety of rafting trips down the San Miguel River, down the Dolores River, or through the famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison River.

Choose from half-day or full-day adventures and try one of the most refreshing activities in the region.

Take your own river trip by floating down the San Miguel River, which runs through town, in a tube.

The jagged peaks and extensive wall faces of the San Juan Mountains provide a variety of climbing and bouldering routes. Legendary climbers, from Lynn Hill to Charlie Fowler, have explored the area and helped put the San Juan Range on the map as a climbing destination.

From classic routes on Ophir Wall to moderate climbs on Pipeline to the Via Ferrata, the climbing is diverse and plentiful.

Warm up at Adventure Rock in Mountain Village. This man made climbing boulder is open daily during (weather permitting) from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the summer. You will find challenges for novices to expert climbers.

Horseback riding in the beautiful San Juan Mountains will be one of your most memorable Telluride experiences. Spectacular mountain vistas and wide open spaces will rejuvenate your spirit. With your choice of a chuck wagon dinner ride, overnight trip, or an afternoon horseback trail ride, find yourself on a guided horseback outing where you’ll be riding through aspen forests and alpine meadows. Giddy up!

The Mountain Lion is embodied by the title “Ghost of the Rockies”, for when in their presence they may be felt but are rarely seen or photographed. This magnificent golden cat has mastered the art of concealment by only hunting the remote broken canyons in the blackness of night.

Possessing cryptic senses of hearing and sight in combination with unmatched strength and speed makes the puma one of the least photographed of North Americas wild animals. But as winter snows blanket the favorite haunts of this American lion, the tracks of this great cat are revealed.

If a glimpse into the fiery-green eyes of one of these golden ghosts calls to you, then come ‘Experience the Edge’!

Experience one of the Premier Homes in Mountain Village

The pisted ski terrain in Chamonix ranges in altitude from 950m to 3300m, with the backcountry skiing offers much more in terms of altitude, vertical descent and difficulty. There are around 150km of pistes, accessed by a total of 65 ski lifts split between the main ski areas and the low mountain beginner zones. Chamonix has 6 green pistes, 30 blue pistes, 31 red pistes and 10 black pistes.

ITINERARY

Day 1:
Dec 29, 2020

PORT:
Tampa, United States

DEPARTURE:
4:00 PM

Tampa, United States

History and Tourist Attractions

Book your cruise on MSC Armonia and be one of the first to sail with us from Tampa, Florida. Located on Florida’s growing Gulf Coast yet close to the heart of the state, Tampa is known for its tourist attractions, rich Cuban culture, and cuisine, and vibrant city districts.

Before you embark on your MSC Cruise, discover authentic history. Learn and discover Florida’s past and personalities at the Tampa Bay History Center. With three floors of history, there’s so much to learn! Visit Ybor City, once known as the “Cigar Capital of the World,” which was once home to 200 factories and 12,000 cigar makers. Take a bite out of history too! Tampa’s historic Columbia Restaurant is the oldest restaurant in the state of Florida. The landmark restaurant opened in 1905 and offers award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine.

Looking for adventure before your cruise? Tampa offers various attractions for the whole family. From theme parks to animal encounters and water activities, you will be able to find something for all ages.

Day 2:
Dec 30, 2020

PORT:
Key West, United States

ARRIVAL:
12:00 PM

DEPARTURE:
7:00 PM

Key West, United States

Welcome to paradise, welcome to Key West

If viewed from afar, Key West seems to float amid a large expanse of sky and sea.

An MSC Cruise will take you right to the southernmost point of the United States, in the Sunshine State, a land of sun-seekers and wild beaches. About 150 km from Cuba, an MSC cruise in the Caribbean and the Antilles is an opportunity to admire the crystal clear waters surrounding Key West, a strip of land just a few kilometers from Miami. The Spaniards nicknamed it “Island of Bones” because here the indigenous people buried their deceased love ones. Connected to the mainland by bridges, Key West is literally a paradise that offers a breathtaking panorama and stages an ancient culture and history. Enjoy the sunset at Mallory Square and get lost in Duval street, one of the liveliest streets of the city, with shops, clubs, and restaurants, and you won’t ever want to leave. It is no coincidence that the likes of Harry S. Truman, Tennessee Williams, and Ernest Hemingway decided to reside here.

Don’t miss the chance to visit the residence of Hemingway himself: An MSC excursion will take you inside the villa, now a museum, where the writer lived for about ten years. A dive into his life: the paintings, the typewriter, the kitchen and every corner that the writer shared with his second wife Pauline Pfeiffer. During his stay in Key West, Hemingway wrote his novel The Old Man and the Sea, winner of a Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize.

When in Key West, a visit to the sea is a must. With an MSC excursion, it is possible to see its depths, from the comfort of a glass-bottomed boat, built to admire the different varieties of colorful fish that populate the Atlantic Ocean.
