Description

Dig out the legends of the fascinating Val di Fanes on a 2-day trek in the Dolomites, and experience stunning scenery.

The timeless valley is scattered with legends of battles, magic, arrowheads and mountains that change colour.

We will begin in the east and cross westwards, which join the Ampezzo Valley and the Val Badia.

The journey consists of the wild and desert terrain flanked by limestone banks in the Alpe di Fanes Piccola. Over the centuries the process of erosion has created bizarre rock formations.

Immersre yourself in the magical mountainside and visit the Marmot Parliament, a peculiar karstic amphitheatre where tales of the Fanes people originate.

The whistles of the marmot will evoke echoes of this legendary region, while the constant trickle of water accompanies us as we climb along the Val di Fanes running parallel to the Rio Fanes. The gushes in this water-rich region come from the highlands and the surrounding peaks. It also produces many waterfalls and ravines.

Once we ascend to the valley’s plateau we’ll head to the Col Bechei where we’ll discover incredible 360-degree views of surrounding valleys. Here the noise of the marmot fade, as the whistles of the ibex become more pronounced.

We’ll reach a rift between towering vertical walls that allow us to overlook the incredible mountains of Lagazuoi and Armentarola.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the magical Dolomite mountainside and join the 2-day trek in the Val di Fanes to discover incredible scenery and timeless legends.


About the guide

On the mountain by feet or by bike, but above all, dreaming.

Born and raised in the middle of the Dolomites; for years work tried to keep me away from the mountains, but now I have the possibility to live in the high lands enjoing the mountains.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
