South Tyrolean Dolomites + Slovenia Trail Running Vacation
July 19 - July 25
We like to think this Runcation has it all. The Alps of Slovenia, the Dolomites of Italy, Spa Hotels, Alpine Lakes, and Castles. Join us on this running vacation as we cross through the highlights of the Italian Dolomites and Slovenia on this week-long adventure. Each night of the running retreat is spent in comfortable hotels with wellness options and creative accommodations inspired by the natural beauty of the area. We start the trip with guided trail running on the awe-inspiring mountain trails of the Italian Dolomites, including a hotel to hotel traverse of some of the most spectacular parts of the Italian Dolomites. This trail running portion is a traverse of some of our favorite trails, towns, and vistas of the Dolomites, from Sellaronda to the Cinque Torri. For part two, it’s all about perfectly runnable level paths along the turquoise valleys and lakes of Slovenia in Triglav National park. Our afternoons here are spent paddle boarding, swimming, or indulging in a lakeside beverage at a castle. We’ll run along a lake that was voted one of the top 10 most beautiful lakes in the world and spend the evenings lakeside with views of the Julian Alps. This running trip includes private transport to bring you to a different location, trailhead, and hidden gem each day of the trip. All logistics, accommodation, and experienced guides included, so you’re free to soak it up and enjoy the Runcation.
