Overview: The soaring spires and spectacular peaks of the World Heritage
Italian Dolomites provide the playground for this incredible trek.
Located in the northeast corner of Italy, near the border with Austria,
we will hike the classic Alta Via 1 (High Route). We will be surrounded
by massive gray limestone towers and find tranquility in lush green
valleys along our 74 mile route. We will stay in charming rifugios
(mountain huts), and enjoy true Italian fare and hospitality. We will
hike for 11 consecutive days and trek about seven miles per day, with an
average altitude gain of about 2,000 feet per day. We will hike at
elevations between 5,000 and 9,000 feet. This area was the World War I
frontline between Austrian and Italian forces, and we will see remnants
of fortifications, gun ramparts and miles of tunnels. Price: $2495 plus
estimated airfare of $850
