our trips

When you travel anywhere in the world the one thing that can make the difference between a good trip and a fantastic one is having a local friend that points out the little known secrets of a place, shares his lifetime experiences and transforms your experience from one of a tourist to one of a local.

Valbruna Travel is a travel agency specialized since 2003 in custom designed trips for small groups to Valbruna and the surrounding Friuli region in Italy and to the snow of Vail, Beaver Creek and Aspen in the Colorado Rockies.
