Start by returning to the road at Rifugio Averau, thereby avoiding the route that takes in a short section of via ferrata. Reach Rifugio Passo Giau (2236m) then enjoy a wonderful afternoon of truly lovely walks through flower-filled meadows.

With any luck you’ll spot eagles overhead and hear the calls of marmots as you stroll through grassy fields and farmland strewn with impressive boulders.

Strange! My comment posted before I had completed it?? I was about to say we had no trouble using the MacsAdventure app to locate the trail that avoids the Via Ferrata on the walk from Averau to Passo Giau.
