Description

I’m pleased to invite you to an amazing hut-to-hut trek in the Friuli Dolomites, a region that I love and I know very well.

This program consists in a 3-day trip starting in Erto, from where I live. During this adventure, we’ll be progressively entering in the heart of the Friuli Dolomites. By the end of this trail, we’ll reach the old town of Centenere after crossing the Duranno Pass

Before continuing, let me tell you why I like to guide my friends and clients here :

  1. It’s one of the wildest areas in the Dolomites;
  2. It’s a challenging tour;
  3. We can really see the wildlife in its habitat.

Besides those features, the Friuli Dolomites is a UNESCO site. It covers a total area of 21.460 hectares, including the provinces of Udine, Pordenone (Friuli Venezia Giulia) and Belluno (Veneto). As you can see, it is a vast region full of options for all tastes and levels.

At the bottom of this description you will find a more complete itinerary of this 3-day hiking trip.

For any other doubt or if you want to book your place, please contact me now. I will happy to take you with me and discover together the wonderful vertical world of our mountains, enjoying a great time in the outdoors of Italy.

Itinerary

Day 1: CAVA BUSCADA

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.

Day 2: MANIAGO HUT

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. 

Day 3: CENTENERE RIDGE

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.


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.
