Eating a heart shaped pizza in the Dolomites, Italy

"Laura Sander is the reason to choose Vitality Active Travel! She is an experienced travel guide who puts her heart and soul into all she does - and it shows when she's customizing a trip just for you. I traveled with Laura in Italy and was so impressed with her ability to seamlessly weave my love for adventure and the outdoors with authentic cultural experiences. No doubt that her fluency in Italian and valuable relationships with locals provided a unique experience that I wouldn't have had with a larger company. Her attention to detail, care for her clients, and passion for sharing new places and cultures make her boutique active travel company stand out. I highly recommend traveling with Laura and Vitality Active Travel."

Enjoying local wine at a mountain hut in the Dolomites, Italy

"Amazing trip to Dolomites! Laura's knowledge of the area greatly added to the trip. She thoughtfully planned the whole itinerary to maximize our time in the region and steered us to the best spots and experiences along the way.  Food and accommodations were awesome, with incredible hikes and beautiful views at every turn, and we were welcomed and assisted by her network of Italian friends as we navigated through the different regions of the Dolomites. A trip I will never forget!"
