A group of us spent an unforgettable week in the dolomites with Uli and Silvia. It was a challenging, safe, funny and inspiring experience and I cannot recommend them enough.
Recently 7 friends and I (adults ranging in ages from 50 to 67) had the pleasure of being guided in the Dolomites for 10 days by Ulrich "Uli" Schwingshackl and Silvia Summa of Discovery Dolomites! None of us had been to the Dolomites or climbed ferratas before! Uli and Silvia provided outstanding customer service, managing every aspect of our Dolomites experience, including hotel and hut reservations, meals, transportation and scheduling! They provided excellent instruction and expertise on how to safely climb and get the most enjoyment from experiencing these incredible mountains! They are both highly professional guides who always have the best interest of their clients in mind. They are genuinely friendly, enthusiastic, passionate, kind, polite, flexible, compassionate, understanding and very special people! They patiently answered all of our questions regarding climbing, hiking, huts, shopping, restaurants, geography, culture and history. They even made special arrangements for our one rest day, hiring a guide for us to take us on a tour of local vineyards so we could enjoy some wine tasting and a wonderful lunch! They were responsible for all of us having the most successful adventure trip possible! If you are considering either a climbing or hiking trip to the Dolomites, I most strongly recommend that you contact Uli and Silvia, as they will do everything possible to make your Dolomites adventure a safe, memorable and rewarding experience!

Ulrich is a real pro! Really knows what he is doing and makes sure all factors are good before climbing. Experience was amazing and would definitely recommend him to everyone for guiding your climb!
We had the most wonderful time climbing with Silvia. Ulrich organized our 3 day trip in Dolomites with our children. We stayed at two different Refugios and loved every minute. Our guide, Silvia, took us on the Via Ferrata. Thank you!
Ulli unser Bergführer hat uns sehr sicher auf die Punta Ema geführt. Sehr sympathisch nach der Tour hatte er noch Zeit für ein gemeinsames Mittagessen sowie ein nettes Gespräch mit Vorschlägen was wir im Rosengarten noch selber machen können. Gerne wieder.
3 day trip: Amazing trip, Ulrich was a very professional guide, and made sure we were safe the entire trip. He customized the trip for our ability and also took great photos of us
Sehr schneller, persönlich und freundlicher Kontakt. Schnelle Antwortzeiten und gute Ideen für die nächste Tour. Hoffe wir kommen bald mal zusammen und wir gehen mit meiner Tochter zu klettern.
Kann toll erklären, unkompliziert, flexibel, jederzeit wieder
Traumhafte Tour auf den Pflerscher Tribulaun! Ohne jeglicher Klettererfahrung am Felsen (Mal abgesehen von Klettersteigen) wagte ich zusammen mit einem Freund und Ulrich den Aufstieg auf diesen atemberaubenden Gipfel. Zu jeder Zeit wurden wir dabei souverän geführt. Geduldig und erklärend einerseits, bestimmend und fordernd andererseits – genau wie ich es von einem erfahrenen Bergführer erwartet hatte. Meine Empfehlung!
Abbiamo fatto la nostra prima ferrata, da assoluti principianti. E' stata un' esperienza magnifica, assolutamente da consigliare. Non credevo che mia moglie riuscisse a superare la paura, invece, grazie all' aiuto della nostra bravissima guida Ulrich, tutto è andato molto bene. Spero di poter ripetere presto l'esperienza. Un sentito grazie alla nostra guida.
