Hands down the best vacation I’ve ever taken. The Dolomites were spectacular, and Liz did a great job ensuring people of all abilities had a wonderful time. The group was the perfect size - and we all got along great! The food at the Refugios was great and the wine and company was even better. I absolutely loved this trip and would recommend it to anyone!

This trip was hands down the coolest and most awesome thing I have ever done. Liz Gill is a rockstar. I couldn’t have imagined a better guide to lead this trip of a lifetime. The breathtaking beauty of the Dolomites cannot be properly captured by photographs which means you must go and see it for yourself! There is no one better than Liz Gill to take you!

I’m still riding a high from this trip. I’m so thankful for our organizer, Liz, who is a logistical genius. Because everything was planned and ready to go long before we began our trek, I was able to be entirely present for the duration of our journey. When you’re hiking or running through the Dolomites and staying in unique, culture-rich refugios every night, the ability to “take it all in” is of utmost importance. In addition to gaining new perspectives on both culture and adventure, I gained something much more valuable—a new appreciation for the beauty of friendship and community. You just can’t put a price on that!

I had a wonderful trip! The Dolomites were the perfect location for a trail running vacation, and Liz picked a wonderful route for us! The refugios were fantastic, comfortable lodging with great food and drink. I would highly recommend this trip!

It was a really good trip. Liz did a really good job at organizing everything and making sure everybody was comfortable and safe. She hired a guide for the slower runners/hikers and did a good job.

This week long adventure in the Italian Dolomites was the perfect addition to my summer travels. Our guide, Liz, was super welcoming and made sure everything ran seamlessly. She gave us lots of information leading up to the trip, and there was no stress throughout the trip at all. The accommodation was a unique experience, and the food was great. This was a great way to meet people as a person traveling on their own, but would also be great for couples of groups of friends. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in an active holiday..

Runcation in the Dolomites was a dream vacation. It was the perfect mix of challenging yet rewarding running and hiking. We experienced endless breathtaking views and a spectacular scenery, we enjoyed plenty of cappuccinos, wine, delicious food, and restful afternoons, and made new friends to top it all off! If you are a runner who loves trails and beautiful mountains, I strongly encourage you to go on this trip!
