Cortina d’Ampezzo sits among some of the highest mountains in all of the Dolomites, making it a hub for mountain climbers during the summer months.
Aside from Tre Cime di Lavaredo, there are plenty of other incredible mountain climbing opportunities.
At 3,343 meters high, Marmolada is the highest peak in the range and easily accessed from Cortina d’Ampezzo. The one-day ascent starts from from Passo Fedaia and includes climbing over Pian dei Fiacconi (2,626 meters) as well as glaciers en route to the summit.
Monte Paterno (3,168 meters) is another popular weekend trip. This two-day ascent takes climbers on a long traverse, filled with vertiginous overhangs, crosses a varied terrain and offers breathtaking views.
Cortina d’Ampezzo has pleasant temperatures and very sunny days during the summer months, with average daily temperatures ranging from 10 ºC to 20 ºC, depending on the time of year. The summer also happens to be the wettest part of the year, with both autumn and spring being a bit drier.
Any trip to the Cortina d’Ampezzo will begin with a flight into the international airport in Venice (VCE). From here, the small city is only two hours north of the city by car or a bit longer by bus.
