Italy’s breathtaking Dolomites are on full display along the iconic Alta Via 1 trail, which boasts some of the most stunning mountain scenery in the country. While the landscape is undeniably gorgeous, it also carries a somber history. Many areas, like the Falzarego mountain pass, still bear the scars of World War I battles.

Compared to its counterpart, Alta Via 2, this trail is accessible to most hikers and spans 120 kilometres and 6700 meters of elevation across nine stages. From the start at Lago di Braies to the finish at La Stanga, Alta Via 1 provides an unforgettable experience that stretches your limits.

The trail takes you through a variety of scenic locations, including the alpine meadows at Passo Giau, the formidable Monte Civetta, and the rock towers of Cinque Torri. You won’t want to miss a single moment of the stunning sights.

Since much of the trail is away from civilization, you’ll need to stay in the rustic mountain huts, known as “rifugios” for the full experience. These authentic lodges offer homemade Italian dishes and comfortable accommodations for a restful night’s sleep.

Our Alta Via 1 hut-to-hut tour includes rifugio bookings and a precise GPS track of the planned route. Our detailed itinerary includes a daily highlights section, so you won’t miss any landmarks.

Mountaineer Reinhold Messner once said that each Dolomite peak is a work of art. With so much beauty to behold, can you afford to miss this experience?
