THEMED EXCURSIONS WITH EXPERT
Often the excursions with the Mazarol are being enriched by the presence of friends, experts, enthusiasts, story-tellers and people passioned about science, old trades and traditions. We collaborate with Alpine guides, tourist guides, researchers, geologists, anthropologists, historians, artists, artisans, and many more professionals who are dedicated to their specific field. The Mazarol believes in the strength and importance of these collaborations, and continues to develop this network that allows to propose an ever more varied and interesting range of themed excursions.
Many of our excursions take place along the many existing themed trails, where nature, landscape and history enrich the route — such is the case, for instance, of the “Via dell’Acqua" (Water Trail) by the Veses stream between the Valbelluna and the Park; the themed trails of the “Chiesette Pedemontane” (small churches and chapels stringed at the foot of the Dolomites); the “Via degli Ospizi” (Hospices’ Trail) and the “Montagna dimenticata” (Forgotten mountains) trail, inside the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park; the many trails and paths used during the “Grande Guerra” (WW1), located between the Grappa massif, the Dolomites and the Pre-alps of Vicenza, and finally the trails of the ‘Resistenza’ (WW2 Resistance movement) in the Dolomiti Bellunesi and in the Valbelluna. We will immerse ourselves in the past, by walking again the paths and trails of the first Pre-historic settlers, the old Venetians (‘Veneti’), Celts and Romans, by looking for the most ancient signs that are still visible and alive in the territory where we operate.
Many are the proposals of the Mazarol dedicated to the nature of the Dolomites, in order to reveal the ever richer marvels of biodiversity that populate these highlands, and thus raise ever more the awareness for the protection of the species more at risk, by also spreading good practices that are more respectful of animals, plants and the environment.
We also propose trails of rural tourism by visiting farmsteads, producers and artisans who operate in our territory, by carrying forward an ancient knowledge and traditional flavors, with an ever deeper focus on quality — an approach highly appreciated by those excursionists who choose to come with us.
