Discover the beauty of the most scenic and northern sections of the epic Alta Via 1 hike near Cortina d’Ampezzo, on this abbreviated version.

This hike follows the original trail covering 38 kilometers and a vertical gain of 2700 meters, ending at the Falzarego mountain pass (or Cortina, depending on your preference). It is ideal for those who want to witness the landscapes impacted by World War 1 but are unable to complete the entire trail.

While this version is less demanding than the entire trail, hikers should still expect daily treks of 4-6 hours over rugged terrain, making it a strenuous hiking experience rather than a leisurely walk.

We take care of all your rifugio accommodations and provide you with full support during your trek. Before setting off, you will receive a detailed written guide with a day-by-day itinerary and accurate GPS tracks of the planned route.

We are excited to plan your unforgettable Alta Via 1 hiking adventure!
