The Friuli Dolomites are one of the wildest areas of the Dolomites, a mountain range in Northeastern Italy.

In fact, the whole region is protected by the Regional Natural Park of Friulian Dolomites. 

This Natural Park spreads over the provinces of Pordenone and Udine, and covers 37,000 hectares. It is bordered by the rivers Tagliamento and Piave.

Beautiful peaks and large isolated valleys, turn this place into a top destination for trekking and mountaineering lovers.

Actually, the absence of connecting roads or villages nearby makes Friuli Dolomites an untouched natural environment.

This time, I invite you to a 4-day trekking tour through a unique landscape, with a lot of wildlife.

For this trip, our starting point will be Rifugio Pordenone. 

From there, we’ll visit famous spots like Campanile di Val Montanaia.

This is a stunning and lonely tower 300 meters tall, which is also known as ‘the illogical mountain’.

Besides, we’ll cross several mountain passes like Monfalcon di Forni pass, the Cason pass and Pramaggiore Pass.

In addition to this, we’ll spend each night at a different Italian mountain hut.

The best time to visit this place is from June to September. By the way, you can find the complete program for this trip below.

I’m a mountain leader living near the Dolomites, so I know this area quite well. However, every time I come here I experience new emotions.

Please contact me if you want to be a part of this trip. I will be glad to be your guide in the Friuli Dolomites.
