Meet Franco

Franco Burlando


I am proud to be the team leader of the Walk the Dolomites premium hikes. The Dolomites are my place of birth and backyard for decades. My memories as a young boy are filled with day trips in the mountains surrounding Belluno and further north towards Cortina d’Ampezzo, Agordo, Zoldo and Auronzo. My uncle and grandfather taught me the silent language of the mountains, where words cannot convey the beauty of the alpine valleys and meadows, the majesty of the surrounding peaks.

I founded Walk the Dolomites in 2012, and since then it has been a wonderful experience sharing these magnificent mountains with a host of excited hikers from all over the world. Check out what they have to say!
