The Italian Dolomites – Summer 2011
The Dolomites were chosen as Norton Hill School’s destination for their D of E Gold Expedition and Adventure Week in the summer of 2011. The base was a small town near the resort of San Martino de Castrozza. The plan was to do some adventure activities to acclimatise for their four day expedition before spending a couple of days R and R in Venice. As a warm up, all the groups would do a via ferrata and spend a day mountain biking.
The groups all managed to complete their expedition despite the problems of rain, shortage of food and wasp nests.
