    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.
