A Thorough Dive Into Everything About Alta Via 1

Enter your mail below and get your free E-Book!

Alta Via 1 is quite an undertaking if you intend to tackle it in one piece. For those who feel nine consecutive days in the Alps are a tad too intense, we prepared a shortened version of the iconic hike, the six stages south of Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Amounting to 86 kilometers and 2600 meters of elevation across six days, it proves to be a more demanding challenge than our Alta Via 1 Highlights hike. You should expect to be en route from 6-8 hours daily.

This part of Alta Via 1 leads past some Dolomites’ worldwide-known icons, such as Cinque Torri and Monte Civetta. You also hike across the incredibly picturesque Passo Giau and its green sea of high-alpine meadows, making this part of Alta Via 1 the favorite of some hikers.

Additionally, the stages after Passo Giau tend to be less crowded, and you will be able to drink in the Dolomites in their totality without any disruptive factors preventing you from doing so.

We will book all your accommodations at rifugios and offer you support during your hike. You will also receive a detailed written guide with a day-by-day itinerary and a precise GPS track of the planned route beforehand.

If you have never been to the Dolomites before, we think it is about time you mend that by hiking the southern part of Alta Via 1!
