    Climate

    The Dolomite Mountains offer some of the best weather in all of the Alps . The summer months (mid-July through September) have warm temperatures and plenty of sun – perfect for hiking. While the average maximum temperature may reach some 80 °F / 25°C on the valley floors, as you ascend, the gentle wind of the Dolomites guarantees refreshing moments. Late spring through early summer are wonderful times to travel as well. Venice weather at the end of your tour will be much warmer than the mountain weather. Please check local conditions before your arrival!
