Overview

The soaring spires and spectacular peaks of the World Heritage Italian Dolomites provide the playground for this incredible trek. Located in the northeast corner of Italy, near the border with Austria, we will hike the classic Alta Via 1 (High Route). We will be surrounded by massive gray limestone towers and find tranquility in lush green valleys along our 74-mile route. We will stay in charming rifugios (mountain huts), and enjoy true Italian fare and hospitality. We will hike for 11 consecutive days and trek about seven miles per day, with an average altitude gain of about 2,000 feet per day. We will hike at elevations between 5,000 and 9,000 feet. This area was the World War I frontline between Austrian and Italian forces, and we will see remnants of fortifications, gun ramparts and miles of tunnels.
