Lucia, a Mountain Leader based in the Dolomites, takes you on a 2-day hiking tour to Mount Pelmo, one of the most beautiful peaks in this mountain range.
I really enjoy guiding in Mount Pelmo because it offers one of the best views of the Dolomites. It’s a giant isolated massif that can be easily seen from other important peaks of this mountain range of Northeastern Italy.
Besides, you have the chance of passing through different habitats in an easy but still amazing hiking trip.
We’ll start from Staulanza Pass and follow a trail on the south side of Mount Pelmo. From there, we’ll enjoy stunning views of Zoldo’s valley and Mt. Civetta.
On the second day, we’ll head to the north side of the mountain through Val d’Arcia Pass and finally return to our starting point.
If you are looking for a short hike in one of the most attractive peaks in the Dolomites, please contact me. I will be happy to be your guide there!
-If you are going to arrive the night before we start the trek, I can book for you a nice hotel nearby and we could meet there. -Mountain hut (not included in the price).
Here is a list of the things I will recommend to bring with you: - backpack (30-40 l) - mountaineering boots - two layers outfits - waterproof jacket and overtrousers - headlamp - sleeping bag or bivibag - If you need information on how to get from Venice to the Dolomites I will be happy to show you your options. - If you need any tips for your Venice experience, just ask (I lived there for two years)!
We start from Staulanza Pass and take the trail to reach Venezia Hut, in a hike that will take us to the dinosaurs’ traces on Mt. Pelmo, and under the magnificent south side of the mountain, with wonderful views on Zoldo’s valley and Mt. Civetta. We will spend the night at Venezia Hut.
We will head up to Val d’Arcia Pass and then descend towards Città di Fiume Hut for lunch, enjoying the spectacular view on the northern walls of the mountain, then we will go back down to Staulanza Pass where we started.
My love for the mountains grew up with me in the flats of Romagna, thanks to my family that let me spent all my vacations in the Dolomites when I was a child. The Dolomites and the mountains between Romagna and Tuscany are the most vivid memories I have of my childhood.
Then I forgot the outdoors for a few years, and spent some time following the other great passion I have: travelling. When I wasn't at school I spent all my time wandering from one hostel to the other all around Europe with my best friend, always searching for new landscapes and new emotions.
I graduated from high school as Business and Programming Consultant, then I completely changed my core subject as I attended the Undergraduate Courses in Anthropological Sciences at Bologna's University. My thesis project brought me back to the mountains, with a research in Landscape and Disaster Anthropology that took me to Erto for the fieldwork, the town where I spent the last six years!
After that I attended the Graduate Courses in Cultural Anthropology, Ethnology and Ethnolinguistics at Ca'Foscari University in Venice, and this time I wrote a thesis on Alpinism. The subject was again Landscape and Risk Anthropology, but this time fieldwork took me to all the best climbing sites in Europe and beyond: Mont Blanc, Arco, Siurana, Montserrat, Elbsandsteingebirge, Céüse, Osp, the Todra Gorge in Morocco and other more...
Once finished with University I decided to turn my passion into a profession, so I took part in the selection for the courses organized by the UIAGM Mountain Guide's Association, and after a year of hiking and studying I became a Mountain Leader.
Now I take other people with me to discover the wonderful vertical world of our mountains, and enjoy the great times together in the outdoors.
It was lovely day. It is one of the best day we had in Italy. Lucia was very friendly and professional. We really liked the hike and she adjusted the hike according to our ability. We saw the open air museum for war . It was interesting. At the end , we had our lunch in the hut . The food was very delicious . I highly recommended this experience. Don’t miss it if you are in Dolomites.
I approached Gauthier about doing a hike with Lucia at the 11th hour and he was quick to respond. They tailored the hike to suit my 10 year old. While the terrain is something we could have navigated on our own - it was fabulous having Lucia as our guide. She knew all the WW1 history of the area, and the geology around how the Dolomites were formed. It was fascinating
i cannot say enough good things about lucia! she got me through to the top both physically and mentally. give her 10 stars!!!! the hike itself gets 5 stars...my age limited my enjoyment of it to about 1 star. i simply bit off more than i could chew. at age 65, 5 star experience, but at nearly 87 ....too much for me.
