Embark on a journey through Italy’s stunning mountain landscapes with the Alta Via 1 hike. This region boasts an abundance of natural beauty and historical landmarks, including the remnants of World War I battles at places like the Falzarego mountain pass

The hike spans nine stages, covering 120 kilometers and 6700 meters of elevation from Lago di Braies to La Stanga.

The trail takes you through an array of breathtaking sights, from the alpine meadows at Passo Giau to the striking Monte Civetta and the tower-like limestone formations of Cinque Torri

As you trek, you will often find yourself far from civilization, and staying in the mountain huts or ‘rifugios’ along the way will provide an authentic experience. These huts offer cozy accommodations and homemade Italian and Ladin dishes.

Our Alta Via 1 hut-to-hut tour includes all rifugio bookings, a GPS track of the planned course, and a written guide detailing the itinerary and daily highlights. 

As Reinhold Messner said, “Every mountain in the Dolomites is like a piece of art.” Don’t miss out on the chance to witness this masterpiece firsthand.
