Put simply, we think this 70 kilometer traverse of the Dolomites packs more pure hiking joy than anywhere else we know. The lush valleys of Northern Italy are the gateway to the heart of the Tyrolean Alps, the spectacular Dolomiti. The trek takes us past dramatic landscapes of pre-historic coral reefs and mountains with bizarre spires and towers that hover like castles in the air. We'll hike through grassy meadows emblazoned with brilliant yellow and vermilion flowers and past sparkling, elegant waterfalls. We'll share the high ground with graceful ibex, and then descend through luxurious fir forests to the valleys. The landscape is both exquisitely rich and stunning in its variety.
