Dolomiti Alta Via N.1

The first, most famous and absolutely exciting trek that crosses the Dolomites from North to South, allowing you to enjoy the wonderful landscapes and beauties that are a Unesco World Heritage Site


The Alta Via n.1 is the first trek designed to cross the Dolomites, it is certainly the most famous and popular and still remains one of the most exciting paths that can be taken to admire the landscape and wonders of these World Heritage Mountains of Unesco.

The trek is managed in total autonomy by the participants and the itinerary that can be followed to reach the various refuges that we offer in the program does not present climbing difficulties and is suitable for all hikers with a minimum of experience, good training, habit of long walks in the mountains and, more generally, the spirit of adaptation necessary to face the different situations, including the weather, which may arise during a multi-day walking trip in the Dolomites.

The route, in several stages, winds along paths that cross the valley floor immersed in coniferous woods, summit meadows, mountain slopes and rocky plateaus, thus giving the traveler all the pleasure of a “full immersion” in nature at a slow pace.

We offer the possibility of choosing a variable number of overnight stays, from a minimum of 3 up to a maximum of 9 (including the one at the start of the journey in Cortina) to allow participants to manage the length and duration of the trek according to their needs.
