Trekking in the Dolomites along Three Natural Parks

In the Dolomites each valley is uniquely different from the others. Besides their typical landforms being rockier in some areas and greener and more level in others, they also feature diverse heritage and local dialects, each valley with its its own, and different architectural styles; they also differ in the ways people protect their territory.

We offer a six-day trekking through three of the most beautiful natural parks in the Dolomites. We start from a wide and rolling mountain pasture in Val Gardena where the flower-studded meadows reach up to the mountains, walking along beautiful trails, never too hard or too steep. The second part of the trekking progresses in the valley around Cortina on a different, rockier terrain, overcoming passes and more technical trails typical of the Dolomites.

Each leg unfolds nicely, 10 to 18 kilometers in length, with 5 to 6 hours of daily average walking time.

Most overnight stays feature hotels located in various towns in the valleys, with some other nights spent in comfortable mountain lodges.

A special organization carries your personal luggage from one place to the next, while only a lightly packed backpack is needed for the daily trekking.
