Web Notice:

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.
