Hiking north to south across the astonishing Dolomites
June 30 - July 10€ 1045
Hiking north to south across the astonishing Dolomites, June 30 – July 10, 2019.
We follow the exceptional route of ‘Alta via 1’ Dolomite ‘Alta Via’ Nr. 1 – from Lake Pragser to Belluno/Italy.
The ‘Alta Via’ Nr.1 crosses the Dolomites in a north-south direction and offers an extremely diverse route of
about 140km. The starting point of the track will be the ‘Pragser Wildsee’, in Pustertal. From there, on our first
day, we will hike to Senes-Hütte(hut), which lies at 2000m above sea level, an altitude we will be hiking at
during the coming days.
After crossing the Senes and Fanes alps, we will arrive at the base of the impressive climbing walls of Lagazuoi
and Tofana, passing wild and romantic mountain lakes, always heading towards the notable Civetta. Walking
along the mighty Civetta’s north side, we will arrive at ‘Vazzoller-Hütte’, a hut that presides over a beautifully
established alpine garden.
We continue on, heading south into the untouched and pristine regions of the Tamer and Pramperet mountain
group. At the Cima Zita, we again reach a height of 2400m, and will find ourselves directly opposite the massive
Schiara mountain.The next day, our descent takes us through the Vescova Valley to La Muda, from where we
travel a few kilometres by bus to Belluno. In the afternoon we can enjoy the Piazza and the medieval town
centre, or we could join a city tour.
Our accommodation will be in a centrally located hotel, in the ‘old town’. Next morning, we travel by train to Germany. Return flight possible from Venice!
