The Alta Via N.1 is a fantastic trek, highlighted by breathtaking views, rustic and lively mountain refuges, a sense of excitement of what lies around the next bend or the next pass, and the satisfaction of traveling by foot through this beautiful and remote area. This linear trip, traveling north to south through the Italian Alps, begins in the Italian Südtirol, and heads south through different mountain groups. This astoundingly rewarding trek visits the Fanes area, Lagazuoi and many other Cortina mountains, Pelmo, Civetta, Moiazza and the Dolomiti Bellunesi.

The Alta Via 1 reaches a high point of 2,752 meters (9,029′). The impressiveness of the scenery and the variety of terrain on this route is matched only by the warmth and hospitality offered by the mountain huts.

Hi Outdoor Italy 🇮🇹
First of all, thank you so much for helping plan my trip and customizing it to suit me.
For me it was absolutely amazing to have that experience all on my own. Hiking the dolomites is incredibly beautiful and impressive. Probably one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen.
I have developed personally and only made myself want to hike.
The route was fantastic, there was the opportunity to change a little along the way depending on the desire and energy.
It has been an amazing trip with lots of personal success and victory. One returns with such huge pride in one’s own performance.

Mvh Andrea
