Dolomites Alta Via 1 Complete

  • Hike the high trails through the peaks of the Dolomites
  • Enjoy warm hospitality and delicious Italian food in historic mountain ‘rifugios’
  • Visit chic Cortina on arrival and Belluno at the end of your journey
  • Hear the call of marmots in the Parco Nazionale delle Dolomiti Bellunesi
  • The sense of achievement in completing one of Europe’s classic long distance trails
Follow the complete length of Italy’s classic Alta Via 1 through the eastern Dolomites from Lago di Braies to Belluno, staying in welcoming authentic mountain huts. Discover 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 on the thermals. This region of the Italian Alps is famed for some of the best scenery in the Dolomites with its immense limestone peaks and beautiful turquoise lakes. Hike surrounded by looming limestone rock faces, through narrow valleys punctuated by soaring spires, alpine meadows, grassy plateaus, dramatic scree slopes and shady forests. The Dolomites rise dramatically around you as you revel in a friendly Italian welcome, delicious pastas and hearty full-flavored fare, excellent local wines, belly-warming grappa and a unique ‘rifugio’ ambience.
