We meet in Cortina and hike right out of our hotel for two days of beautiful full day hikes past forests, valleys, and alpine lakes. Our first walk will take us through forests and valleys to the crashing waterfalls of the Fanes River. We continue until we reach the Lago di Limo, the source of the Fanes River. Our eight hour hike finishes right at the Rifugio Lavarella, 2,042 meters in height, our home for the next two nights. The following day we have a 7 hour loop walk in the Natural Park of Sennes/Braies , visiting several rifugi.
Two marvelous days of hiking in the Val Badia visiting small towns, farms and with spectacular views. We’ll circle around the dramatic Sasso della Croce before reaching the Rifugio Santa Croce. After lunch here, we’ll visit the small settlement with its pretty Renaissance abbey. We’ll walk down to the lovely small ski resort of San Cassiano where we are staying for the next two nights. The next day’s walk takes us “ mountain town hopping” all the way up to Rifugio Valparola (2,300 meters).
This morning we leave the charming town of San Cassiano and head out for our hike that will take us to our home for the night; Rifugio Gardenaccia. The following morning we set off for a nice invigorating hike that takes us all the way to the Val Gardena where we will spend the next two nights. The following day we’ll have a beautiful hike in the Val Gardena with views of the Sasso Lungo, one of the most impressive massifs in the area. Our last hike in the Dolomiti takes us from our hotel all the way down to “civilization” / the town of Bressanone where we will spend our last night.
Departure day; drop off in Verona.
