This walking holiday takes place close to the border of Italy and Austria where several striking mountain massifs of the Dolomites rise dramatically above peaceful green valleys. Popular with climbers and hikers alike, this playground for the outdoor enthusiast boasts numerous long distance trails, one of the best of which runs east to west from the Innerfeldtal Valley (at the heart of the spectacular Sesto Dolomites) to the Selva di Val Gardina beneath the imposing peaks of Sassolungo and the Sella Group. Traversing a weird and wonderful landscape of rock walls and spires, including the fantastic Tre Cime di Lavaredo, this holiday shows off the great diversity of Dolomites scenery. Pretty villages, forest trails, Alpine meadows and rocky ridges combine to make this an unforgettable experience. Accommodation throughout is at spectacularly located refuges where we can expect to receive the very best of traditional Italian hospitality. Staying in the high mountain huts means we can remain truly immersed in the experience of a high level traverse. With its singular blend of culture and landscape, this is an exceptional hiking holiday.
Is this holiday for you?
The trek is a high level traverse of the Sesto and Bardia Dolomites staying in mountain huts and involves walking on a variety of trails which take us through forests, across alpine meadows and over rocky passes. The trails used for the most part offer very good underfoot conditions. We average around 6 - 7 hours walking each day with typically 750 - 1000 metres of ascent and/or descent each day. Accommodation is in mountain huts and guest houses. Clients have access to their main bags every other evening and sleeping bags are not required, therefore there is no need to carry a large backpack - only what is necessary for a single overnight. This walking holiday is perfect for the regular hiker with a good level of fitness.
