6 Days



All Levels

  • Enjoy the physical challenge of a medium to difficult hike
  • Experience mountain huts and alpine hotels full of character


Come with me on a 6-day hiking trip in one of the most beautiful spots in Italy – the Cadore Valley. We’ll stay in charming hotels rich with character and traditional mountain huts along the way and enjoy delicious regional food. This is an experience you’ll remember forever.

On this trip, we’ll follow the Marmarole hiking circuit. This will take us across different types of terrain, from narrow mountain paths to cycle paths and gravel roads. We’ll also encounter some steep inclines and some sharp descents. There are even some sections with high drops.  This might be worrying to those with vertigo, however we’ll have extra safety equipment on hand to manage these short sections.

In total, we’ll spend around 4 to 8 hours hiking each day. Along the way, we’ll be able to enjoy the scenery of green rolling hills, rugged mountainous vistas, beautiful waterfalls and forests. These are landscapes you do not want to miss.

Request to book now and start getting excited about your adventure-filled hiking trip around the Marmarole hiking circuit.
