We start from Erto and hike up on Mt. Borgà to take a look at the landscape of the valley. It was tragically changed by the Vajont disaster in 1963. Then, we take the trail to reach Cava Buscada, a former quarry now turned into a Mountain hut, where we will spend the night.
We take a tour around the wonderful Val Zemola, with its fabulous wildlife. Then, we reach Rifugio Maniago, under the breath-taking walls of Mt. Duranno.
In our last day we hike up to Duranno Pass, and take a long walk on the Centenere Ridge, among herds of alpine ibexes, with the astonishing views of the highest peaks of the region. Finally, we get down to the town again.
Prices from 9 to 15 participants: 120€ per person.
Here is a list of the things I will recommend to bring with you:
- backpack (30-40 l)
- mountaineering boots
- two layers outfits
- waterproof jacket and overtrousers
- sleeping bag or bivibag
If you are going to arrive the night before we start the trek, I can book for you a nice hotel nearby and we could meet there. If you need information on how to get from Venice to the Dolomites I will be happy to show you your options.
If you need any tips for your Venice experience, just ask (I lived there for two years)!
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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
