Dolomites Alta Via 1 Classic

  • Admire the ‘alpenglow’ as the mountains turn vivid pink in the late afternoon sun
  • Enjoy Italian food, the company of fellow walkers and authentic mountain huts
  • Follow well-waymarked paths across mountain passes, pastures and forests
  • Explore the hiking capital of Cortina and charming Belluno
  • Savour a cold beer on the terrace as a golden sunset bathes the landscape
Hike along the Alta Via 1, start in Cortina, a bustling town popular with hikers before heading to the beautiful Lake Braies and on through the east Italian Alps before finishing the hike in the small town of Belluno. Follow well-marked high trails showcasing the incredible and varied scenery that the Dolomiti has to offer. Picture-postcard alpine pastures contrast with the jagged peak of the Croda da Lago and the Civetta. Stay in charming 3* hotels for the first and last nights of your trek, whilst on the Alta Via 1 itself walk from hut-to-hut. The ‘rifugios’ are a highlight of the walk, offering welcoming and authentic mountain hut accommodation. Enjoy delicious home-cooked fare in the refugios and treasure the camaraderie along the trail.
