Dolomites Alta Via 1 South

  • Walk amongst classic peaks of the Civetta, Monte Pelmo & Cinque Torri
  • Enjoy a warm Italian welcome and delicious food and the mountain huts
  • Stay in the chic ski resort of Cortina and historic rifugios
  • Discover quiet paths through the wild Parco Nazionale delle Dolomiti Bellunesi
  • Admire the sunset from the lofty terrace of ridge-top Rifugio Nuvolau
Hike along the Alta Via 1, discover its wilder and quieter side. Arrive in Cortina, and spend the night before heading into the mountains. Embark on the trail through rhododendron forests and flower-filled pastures, with views of the Cinque Torri. Ascend to one of the oldest mountain huts in the Alps; Rifugio Nuvolau, its unique setting affords outstanding views over the peaks. Follow well-way-marked routes as you make your way from hut to hut, hearing the call of marmots in the meadows and, with any luck, spot eagles soaring high above. Hike over mountain passes, including Passo Giau and Passo Staulanza. Rocky giants such as Monte Pelmo and the Civetta massif loom large, before crossing the wildest of its parks - Parco Nazionale delle Dolomiti Bellunesi. On to the final day, descend to La Pissa to catch the bus to the pretty village of Belluno.
