ALTA VIA 1 - DOLOMITES HIGH ROUTE

  • Lago di Braies, Braies BZ, Italia

Route description

Weaving through the dramatic Dolomites mountain range, Alta Via 1 is like a "greatest hits" nature tour of northeastern Italy. The rugged trail guides hikers from high-altitude World War I battlefields to towering limestone cliffs, past pristine alpine lakes, vast meadows, and craggy >3000mt peaks. The Dolomites may not be the tallest mountains in Europe, but they are widely considered the most charismatic for their unique geology and photogenic rock formations, and the entire area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Alta Via 1 is a backpacker's dreams, lined with huts, that provide home-cooked meals and a clean bed.
If possible, avoid August, the Italian summer holiday month, when the path is the most crowded.
