Walking Tours on the Alta Via 1

The Alta Via 1 is one of Europe's premier walking routes, situated in the eastern Italian Alps.  On these trips, you will experience the tranquillity of self-guided walking on well-marked paths, through dramatic mountain passes, pastures filled with wild-flowers and deep, shaded forests.  For the bulk of your trip, you will be staying in Rifugios, the traditional Italian alpine huts.   Here you will discover the camaraderie of staying in these huts, eating regional, home-cooked meals and chatting through the day's events with your fellow walkers as you watch the mountains around you turn pink in the sunset. 

Since 2008, Macs Adventure has been helping walkers to explore the wonders of Italy on foot. With the freedom to create your own itinerary and the knowledge that our team have the expertise to tailor-make this trip to perfectly suit you, you can book your walking holiday in Italy with confidence. 

We offer a variety of options on the Alta Via 1 depending on how much you want to get out of the region. There is the Classic Via Alta 1 for those who want to get the best of the trip, but don't have time for the full route or, if you want to spend a bit more time soaking up the region you can opt for the Dolomites Alta Via 1 Relaxed
