The paths, weaving through diverse terrains, offer a blend of peaceful woodland trails and exhilarating rocky ascents. The journey between Rifugio Rosetta and Pradidali unfolds across the rugged Pale di San Martino plateau, where each step reveals a new facet of the Dolomites’ beauty.

Every aspect of the Pale di San Martino Traverse is carefully curated to provide a seamless and enriching experience. From the pre-booked rifugios offering respite to our 24/7 support and a personalized travel booklet containing GPS navigation for all stages.

Many sections of the walk can be bypassed by taking gondola rides, providing a less taxing experience without missing out on the stunning vistas and unique landscape features. But hikers should still be prepared for a strenuous adventure that tests physical endurance and hiking prowess.

This adventure is suited for fit and experienced hikers who are prepared for a challenge. The trails, while immensely rewarding, demand a good level of fitness, sure-footedness, and hiking experience.
