Join us on a condensed version of the legendary Alta Via 1 trek and explore the most scenic and northern sections of the trail, located in the famous Cortina d’Ampezzo area.

This hike covers 38 kilometers with an elevation gain of 2700 meters, following the original route and culminating at the stunning Falzarego mountain pass (or Cortina if preferred). It’s the perfect opportunity for those wanting to discover the landscapes shaped by the events of World War 1 but unable to complete the full trail.

Although shorter and less challenging than the entire route, expect daily hikes of 4-6 hours across rugged terrain. This is a demanding hiking experience, not a leisurely walk.

We’ll handle your accommodations at traditional rifugios and provide support throughout the journey. Before setting out, you’ll receive a detailed written guide with a day-by-day itinerary and a precise GPS track of the planned route.

Let us organize your unforgettable Alta Via 1 hike!
