Description

Join me in the Alps this summer and take a 6-day trek around the Zoldo Dolomites! These mountains have as much beauty as cultural intrigue, and I will place you front and center in this picture perfect adventure.

The Dolomites are part of the Southern Limestone Alps and named after the Dolomite rock itself. Located in northern Italy, their historical significance has granted the mountain range UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

During World War I, they served as the battleground for the Austrians and Italians. The via ferrata networks established a century ago have since been restored and are a huge attraction for climbers.

For hikers and adventure-seekers in general, the region offers charming mountain backdrops that will make your trek even more unforgettable. You will find alpine meadows and diverse forests snuggled into the valleys as you head from rifugio to rifugio.

Our journey is a circular trail that will take us around Val di Zoldo, set at the foot of Civetta, Mezzodi, and other remarkable Dolomites. Starting out from Zoldo, we will spend roughly four to seven hours trekking on each of the ¨laps¨ before settling into rifugios in the evening.

Our itinerary gives us the opportunity to make it to the top of the mountains through various paths, all easily accesible and well maintained.

This is an intermediate trek, so you should be in good physical shape.

When you are preparing for this program, you should take the weather into consideration and pack for each possible situation.

Book this program and spend six days trekking through the beauty of history of the Dolomites!

About the guide

AGAI Mountain Leader (Accompagnatore di media montagna) from Veneto.
I was born in the heart of the Dolomites, between Pelmo and Civetta, the love for the mountains was inevitable for me.
Ski slopes and snow in winter, walk through my home mountains in summer. So I decided to turn my passions into a choice of life.

The qualification of Mountain Leader and Snowbord Instructor allowed me to realize a dream: to live and work in my mountains.

I wait for you for hiking and trekking in the Dolomites, to share the magic of the nature together!

We were lucky to have the best guide and great time trekking around Val di Zoldo area end of August. Chiara was taking good care of us, and she knows all the paths in the area. It was a pleasure to spend the 6 days together, we did around 90+ km and would definitely recommend it.
