Description

The Cinque Torri is a group of five mythical towers at the heart of the Dolomites. They are one of the most classic images of the Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the south-west area of the valley. This unique geological formation will be the centre of this hiking day tour.

I will take you to enjoy the unique views to both the Giau Pass and the Falzarego Pass. Our hike can also be adapted to follow different itineraries, based on the group level and wishes.

After we reach a parking lot at the base of the ski lifts, we will go hiking to Lake Baign de Dones. From there, we will hike up along a trail, stretching down to Rifugio Cinque Torri and explore the area surrounding these unique towers. We can also visit the First World War Open Air Museum. In addition, we’ll go up to Rifugio Averau and to the top of Mt. Nuvolau on the hike!

We will enjoy an easy and relaxing hiking tour, with a lot of interesting history to discover and one of the most famous views in the Dolomites. This is a very popular climbing area. You will be able to watch climbers in action on these mythical granite walls during this day.

We can have lunch together at one of the huts on the trail, after the hike or we can arrange a pack-lunch to enjoy it in the middle of nature. The hike starts at 9.30am and finishes at about 3 or 4pm.  This hiking tour runs every Sunday during July and August.

Don’t hesitate to send me a request if you want to join me on this day hike. Book your trip and I will take you to discover an amazing place in the Dolomites.

About the guide

guide profile img

My love for the mountains grew up with me in the flats of Romagna, thanks to my family that let me spent all my vacations in the Dolomites when I was a child. The Dolomites and the mountains between Romagna and Tuscany are the most vivid memories I have of my childhood.
Then I forgot the outdoors for a few years, and spent some time following the other great passion I have: travelling. When I wasn't at school I spent all my time wandering from one hostel to the other all around Europe with my best friend, always searching for new landscapes and new emotions.
I graduated from high school as Business and Programming Consultant, then I completely changed my core subject as I attended the Undergraduate Courses in Anthropological Sciences at Bologna's University. My thesis project brought me back to the mountains, with a research in Landscape and Disaster Anthropology that took me to Erto for the fieldwork, the town where I spent the last six years!
After that I attended the Graduate Courses in Cultural Anthropology, Ethnology and Ethnolinguistics at Ca'Foscari University in Venice, and this time I wrote a thesis on Alpinism. The subject was again Landscape and Risk Anthropology, but this time fieldwork took me to all the best climbing sites in Europe and beyond: Mont Blanc, Arco, Siurana, Montserrat, Elbsandsteingebirge, Céüse, Osp, the Todra Gorge in Morocco and other more...
Once finished with University I decided to turn my passion into a profession, so I took part in the selection for the courses organized by the UIAGM Mountain Guide's Association, and after a year of hiking and studying I became a Mountain Leader.
Now I take other people with me to discover the wonderful vertical world of our mountains, and enjoy the great times together in the outdoors.
