Dolomite Mountains

7 Days





Join me on this 7-day guided hike and I will take you to the most beautiful trails of the Friulian Dolomites Natural Park, sorrounded by spectacular mountains. 

The Friulian Dolomites have been included in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage list in 2009. This region has vast mountainous groups of dolomitic appearance, impressive spiers and high walls, slopes and truncated valleys.

This is one of the wildest and most unotuched areas of the Dolomites, and a favorite trekking destination for mountain lovers. The whole region is protected by the Friulian Dolomites Natural Park. The Park spreads over the provinces of Pordenone and Udine, and covers 37,000 hectares.

We will be based in a hotel in Forni di Sopra, a village on the border between Friuli and Cadore, with the wonderful view of the stunning peaks of the Friulian Dolomites. Forni di Sopra is located in the province of Udine, in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region in northeastern Italy. 

During these days, we will climb three peaks and visit the most traditional huts in the area. You will be amazed by the sight of spectacular mountains, like the Pesarine Dolomites, the Cadore, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and the Carnic Alps, among others, and by the large isolated valleys of this region. 

We will also have time to relax in the village when we come back from our outings in the mountains. You can check the day-by-day itinerary below.

So send me a request if you want to discover this untouched region in the Dolomites. Check the date below and book your trip. Join me and enjoy a unique hiking tour in the Friulian Dolomites.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
