Wife and I are looking at arranging a walking holiday in Italy (Dolomites or Alps) and trying to decide best approach. Looking to hike average of 5 hours a day and not be carting about lots of luggage. We don't want to do it as a group, or have guided walks - just our own thing at our own pace. We are also not after 4*plus luxury accommodation/food. Just clean with decent food options. We appreciate that for some stops, food options may be very limited.
Looking for maybe 5-6 days walking, late June or anytime in July.
Had thought about booking one of the walking tours you find on the internet where they transport all your gear to the next overnight stop for you, leaving you to hike to it in your own time, but the prices look pretty high. If going down this route (haha) does anyone have a company they would recommend?
As alternatives, we wondered about renting somewhere as a base and heading out daily for different walks, even using lifts or local bus to get around. Anyone got any experience of anywhere that would fit that bill, or a company they would recommend that arranges local rentals?
