The High Path of the Dolomites The High Path of the Dolomites number 1 goes from Lake Braies to Belluno. This first high Dolomite route owes its fame to the ideal lines and, above all, to the exceptional beauty of the landscape, along the most interesting areas of the Eastern Dolomites. This is the most difficult variant of this route and especially in the last section maximum safety is required. This beautiful trail will take you into the legendary landscape of the Northern Italian Alps to admire incredible landscapes all along the way. The Dolomites are a mountain range with 18 peaks that rise over 3,000 meters. It features some of the most stunning mountain landscapes in the world with sheer cliffs, narrow, deep and long valleys and steep vertical walls. Several hikers describe it as their all time favorite excursion. Possibility of overnight stay in comfortable local refuges. This course is great for anyone looking for a challenging but very rewarding adventure.Show more

Prenditi una mezza giornata o un'intera giornata per passeggiare intorno al Lago di Braies, probabilmente il lago più bello d'Italia. Il suo colore blu-verde e lo splendido sfondo sono mozzafiato. L'escursione in sé è abbastanza facile, con un ampio sentiero di roccia frantumata e alcune scale. Ci sono tavoli da picnic e panchine intorno al lago se vuoi pranzare lì, o semplicemente vuoi sederti e ammirare il panorama. Per godere di una vista ancora migliore, puoi persino noleggiare una barca in legno e remare sul lago. C'è molto da esplorare in questa zona e avrai molto tempo per farlo poiché questo sentiero si trova in posizione centrale nelle Dolomiti di Braies e richiede solo circa un'ora per essere completato.Show more

An absolutely beautiful and challenging hike! It can be done in one day or combined with a stay in one of the Refuges to make it an easier hike. This route is great because you can see the three peaks but also other surroundings which are much less crowded than the three peaks circuit. This path starts from Val Fiscalina | Fischleinbachtal.Show more

Revive the legendary tour around the Tre Cime and extend the tour via the Forcella Pian di Cengia (Büllelejoch). From the Auronzo refuge, path 101 leads to the Lavaredo refuge. Then turn right towards Büllelejoch (104) on a path that descends on the southern slope of Monte Paterno (Paternkofel). On the slope behind Lago di Cengia, take path 107 and you will soon reach Forcella Pian di Cengia. Hikers recommend stopping at the Pian di Cengia Refuge to rest, even if you are not halfway through the hike. Return to path 101 on the north side of Monte Paterno to the three peaks refuge. From here, take the path towards Paternsattel and soon turn right onto path 105 towards Lange Alm. The trail leads downhill to the Rienzboden and back to the Langen Alm plateau. This part of the journey will seem particularly long. Then return to the parking of the Auronzo Refuge.Show more

Several hikers describe it as their all time favorite excursion. Possibility of overnight stay in comfortable local refuges.

The views along this trail are stunning, particularly in the area around the Malga Vaciara restaurant. The route isn't extraordinarily demanding physically, but it does have extremely steep drops off the narrow trail in some parts. Not for the faint of heart, or those afraid of heights. For the weary hikers, it may be better to do an out-and-back to the Malga Vaciara, where one can enjoy a nice lager and wonderful vista.Show more

The Monte Stivo is 2,054m high and divides the Sarca plain north of Lake Garda from the Val d’Adige in Rovereto. The trailhead of this hike is Sant’Antonio, a village above the Santa Barbara pass. Up here at 1400 meters the mountain pastures of the Monte Stivo begin and stretch up to the summit. These meadows are a feast for the eyes: peonies, wild tulips, anemones, Alpine buttercups, gentians and primroses transform these meadows into a sea of flowers. You can also enjoy the view of Lake Garda as you follow the path leading steeply up to the highest point. From top of the mountain near the Rifugio Marchetti, enjoy the fabulous view of the Val d’Adige valley, from Trento to Rovereto, Lake Garda and the villages of Riva and Arco.Show more

This is a very easy hike through the largest, high alpine meadow in all of Europe. The Alpe di Siusi (Italian) or Seiser Alm (German), has many trails to walk on. Situated in northern Italy’s South Tyrol area, it has views that are incredible. And everything in this area is still signed in both Italian and German. It is a very popular skiing destination in the winter also. A nice easy day spent with endless views.Show more
