Covering the northeastern part of Italy, the Dolomites stretch across one of the most visually spectacular alpine landscapes. The authentic ‘rifugios’ will provide you with shelter and tasty meals, but the mountains will be the ones to satiate the longings you did not even know you had when hut-to-hut hiking in the Dolomites.

5 Essential Tips for Hut-to-Hut Hiking in the Dolomites

  • Choose the Right Season: Timing is everything when it comes to hiking in the Dolomites. The ideal months are from late June to late September when the trails are clear and the huts open. Venturing outside this window could mean closed rifugios and snow-covered trails.
  • Book Your Mountain Huts Early: The Dolomites offer a range of mountain huts known as “Rifugios,” each with a unique charm. Due to their popularity, it’s crucial to book your stay well in advance, especially if you’re planning to hike popular routes like the Alta Via 1.
  • Know Your Route: The Dolomites offer various routes with different levels of difficulty. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced hiker, there’s a route for you. Research thoroughly and choose a trail that matches your skill level and interests.
  • Pack Smart: While the Rifugios offer some amenities, it’s essential to pack wisely. A sleeping bag liner, waterproof slippers, and a microfiber towel are among the must-haves. Remember, you’ll be carrying everything on your back, so pack light, but don’t skimp on essentials.
  • Mastering Multi-Day Logistics: You’ll need to coordinate between different rifugios for availability, manage daily hiking distances to match your fitness level, and ensure you have contingency plans for bad weather.
