Monte Popera, 3-day Trek and photography tour near Auronzo di Cadore, Italy (Sexten Dolomites)


Enjoy a 3-day hike and photography tour on the beautiful Monte Popera in the Dolomites of Italy with GAI certified guide Lorenzo.


Dolomite Mountains

3 Days





  • Enjoy a 3-day trekking expedition to the summit of the Monte Popera.
  • Spend your nights in different mountain huts in the Dolomites.
  • Marvel at the beauty of one of Italy's most famous ranges.


Located near the Auronzo di Cadore in the amazing Dolomites of Italy is the Monte Popera (3,046m). And, on this 3-day trip, you will get to explore this wonderful peak.

Beginning at the Auronzo di Cadore, we will take a taxi to the Auronzo Refuge, which rests at the foot of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Once there, we will trek under the Tre Cime, the Monte Paterno and the Croda dei Toni until we reach the Comici Refuge, where we will spend the night.

On the second day of the trip, we will trek to the summit of the Monte Popera. Once we reach the summit, you will get to enjoy, and photograph, the incredible views you will get of the Sesto Dolomites. You will also get to see the Carnic Alps, Giulie and Tauri. Afterwards, we will make our way down to the Carducci Refuge, where we will spend the night.

On the final day of the trip, you will get to take plenty of great photos at the Croda dei Toni. Afterwards, we will return to the Auronzo di Cadore.

While not a difficult trip, it is important that participants are in good physical condition, as we will be doing plenty of walking each day.

The Dolomites are famous with explorers from around the world. And, after this 3-day trip that will take you to the summit of the Monte Popera, it isn’t difficult to see why. To join me on this trip, please send a request.

I also offer a week long hiking adventure through the Bernina Group.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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
