Lucia, a certified Mountain Leader, takes you on an incredible 8-day hiking tour, traversing the Dolomites from North to South.
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!

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.

It was lovely day. It is one of the best day we had in Italy. Lucia was very friendly and professional. We really liked the hike and she adjusted the hike according to our ability. We saw the open air museum for war . It was interesting. At the end , we had our lunch in the hut . The food was very delicious . I highly recommended this experience. Don’t miss it if you are in Dolomites.
I approached Gauthier about doing a hike with Lucia at the 11th hour and he was quick to respond. They tailored the hike to suit my 10 year old. While the terrain is something we could have navigated on our own - it was fabulous having Lucia as our guide. She knew all the WW1 history of the area, and the geology around how the Dolomites were formed. It was fascinating
i cannot say enough good things about lucia! she got me through to the top both physically and mentally. give her 10 stars!!!! the hike itself gets 5 stars...my age limited my enjoyment of it to about 1 star. i simply bit off more than i could chew. at age 65, 5 star experience, but at nearly 87 ....too much for me.
