Dolomites Alta Via 1 Complete (Extended)

A well-paced 2 week trip along the iconic Italian ‘High Route 1’ through the best of the Dolomiti mountains, with a mid-walk rest day to recharge and explore the region’s ‘hiking capital’ of Cortina.

Enjoy the greatest summits and vistas of the Dolomites, including Lake Braies at the start of the trail; the imposing Sennes and Fanes massifs and natural parks; Monte Lagazuoi with its sky-scraping rifugio; the Tofana range with its WWI battlefields, Croda da Lago with its lakeside Rifugio and further numerous enchanting mountain passes.
