      Loved this trip, great mix of hiking, kayaking and wonderful food. Andrea and Jo were wonderful guides and took great care of us. If one activity wouldn't work because of poor conditions, they were always able to come up with great alternatives. We... Show more

      My wife and I loved the hiking and the company! Once again we are impressed how Active Adventures allow us to hike at our own pace. They are always looking out for us and making sure we are having a great time.

      The Italian Alps and Lake District were awesome! Some of the hikes were challenging for me given some steep inclines and uneven rocks but the views from the top were well worth the effort! Our guides were flexible in offering options on two of the days... Show more

      This was my 1st Active Adventures trip but not my last. We had 13 participants with 3 professional guides, our Trip Leader, Joanna McHugh, a native hiking guide, and expert kayaking guide, Giuliano. These guides worked so well together and made the trip... Show more

      The hike of Rifugio Crespi was my favorite! I loved the sound of the bells as we passed the herd of cows, the beautiful chalets in the hamlet and the delicious lunch with local cheeses and beers and the great capuchino!!

      The Dolce Vita is an excellent way to be hosted and genuinely taken care of as you undertake a couple of wonderful hikes in the northern Italian Alps, then proceed to the famous Lakes to see and kayak on Lake Como and Lake d'Orta. All this, whilst... Show more

      This has been the most fantastic trip I have ever been on. I can pinpoint it to the fact that it turned out to be genuinely personal in all respects. Not only were our 2 guides, Andrea and Jo Jo extremely personable, but their constant cooperation,... Show more

      The Dolce Vita trip was beyond amazing. Had an incredible journey as mother and daughter exploring the little known gems in Northern Italy. Our guides were full of knowledge (was there anyone Andreas didn’t know?) and humour, especially our DBB, even... Show more
