Description

This is the legendary north-south traverse of the Dolomites! Join me for an 8-day hiking trip in a wonderful scenery.

During this hut-to-hut experience we will cross the most beautiful areas of the Dolomites, a mountain range of Northeastern Italy.

Our starting point will be Braies Lake, which is famous worldwide for its stunning beauty. From there, we’ll head to the South through the Sennes plateau with its particular environment. And then through the Lagazuoi area and the Five Towers. 

Finally, we’ll traverse Nuvolau range with the First World War open air museum, around the two giants of the Dolomites: Mount Pelmo and Mount Civetta.

If you want, it is possible to add 3 more days to this trip to complete the Haute Route in the wilder and more difficult final part. In that case, a UIAGM mountain guide will support you through a Via Ferrata on the south wall of Mount Schiara.

I enjoy guiding this Dolomite Haute Route because it’s a unique opportunity to see all the Dolomites at once and enjoy this unbelievable environment that has been recgonized as a UNESCO world heritage.

So please contact me if you want to join me for this 8-day adventure in the mountains. I will be glad to show you the best spots around here!

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.
