Dolomites Alta Via 1 - South

Hike over mountain passes, including Passo Giau and Passo Staulanza; the latter calls for a stop at the rifugio for a mug of delicious hot chocolate … Rocky giants such as Monte Pelmo and the Civetta massif loom large, before the AV1 crosses the wildest of its parks - Parco Nazionale delle Dolomiti Bellunesi. Having warmed up, you’ll be ready to tackle the steeper gradients here, rewarded with glimpses of the Venetian plain. We take the easier variant to La Stanga on the final day’s descent, before catching the bus from La Muda to the pretty village of Belluno
