Monte Lagazuoi

Dolomites Alta Via 1 - Complete

Follow the entire length of Italy’s classic ’High Route 1’ through the eastern Dolomites from Lago di Braies in the north, to Belluno in the south, staying in welcoming and authentic mountain huts. This region of the Italian Alps is famed for some of the best scenery in the Dolomites - immense limestone peaks, with excellent well-trodden variants that allow you to avoid any via ferrata, making this a delightful trek.
