Not specified

Dolomite Mountains

5 Days

Jun - Sep




In this 5-day hiking trip, we'll traverse the most beautiful part of Alta Via 1 (Av1). This is a very popular long distance trail in the Dolomites, also known as High Route.

Our starting point will be Alleghe, an Italian village in the province of Belluno. From there, we'll take a lift to Pian di Pezze hut and take our first via ferrata.

Each day we'll be taking different secured climbing routes, enjoying the wonderful views of the Dolomites peaks and valleys. Besides, we'll reach the summit of Mt Civetta (3220 m), one of the highest peaks of this mountain range. During the night, we'll stay in mountain huts.

You can have a look at the whole itinerary below this description.

This programme is ideal for beginners. However, it's important to be in a good shape as well as having some previous experience in via ferrata. If that's not exactly your case, I can adapt the length and level of the trip according to your skills.

Please, contact me if you want to join this 5-day trip in the Dolomites. I'll be happy to guide you in this area I know so well.

Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again



Perfect experience with a wonderful guide



We loved our guide and our adventure. She was very accommodating to our needs and nice to be around. I would totally book with explore share again.



I had a truly fantastic experience with Gabriele from PeaksHunter. He was a very experienced, careful guide. He was very considerate and encouraging and I was very fortunate to have this climbing experience with PeaksHunter.



Explore share were easy to work with and their outsourced guides “Peakshunter” were absolutely amazing. Our guides ELIS MARTIS and ALESSANDRO BELTRAMI were amazing they made the trip so much better. They were patient, professional and really knowledgable.
