Dolomite Mountains

1 Day

Apr - Oct



The Sexten Dolomites, in northeastern Italy, have a huge variety of places to enjoy unforgettable hikes. Join us on any of them and we will provide you with the necessary orientation and share with you all the details of this stunning area.

Le Corbusier, one of the most admired architects of the 20th century, defined this mountain range as the most beautiful architectural work in the world. In this environment you will discover new landscapes away from the crowds.

If you are looking for an easy hike, you should not miss the Poppy Tour. We walk from Monte Croce Pass to Malga Nemes refuge and from there to Coltrondo mountain. It is a 4 to 5 hour walk through dense forests. This hiking trail is the best to appreciate the exotic flowers that grow among the rocks of the region, specially the beautiful poppies.

As for intermediate difficulty tours, we also have a very varied offer. The 6-hour hike from Passo Monte Croce to the meadows of Croda Rossa is a must. Here we will find a refuge with a beautiful play area and excellent food!. We will also find a panoramic point to observe the most important peaks in the area. In addition, we can visit the beautiful reindeer family that lives there.

For expert hikers, there are also many opportunities. One of them is to walk to Locatelli Refuge (2,438 m). From there you have the best view of the north side of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the most famous point of the Sexten Dolomites, with its three distinctive peaks.

These are other 1-day hikes that we can enjoy: Baita del cacciatore (Hunter’s hut) – Monte Elmo / Sentiero dei camosci (Chamois Trail) – Ridges of Croda Rossa / Mount Casella / Tour of the refuges / Comici Refuge / Mount Baranci / Passo Grande dei Rondoi – Tre Cime di Lavaredo / Alta Via Carnica – Sentiero dei contrabbandieri (Contrabbandier trail) / Mount Cadini / Piccola Rocca dei Baranci / Mount Cima Undici / Croda Sora dei Colesei / Croda Rossa – Passo Monte Croce / Tour of the farms / Cinque Torri / Carducci Refuge

What people are saying about Herbert



I went with Mark Oberlechner who is a great guide!!! And we took the 4 day tour so not this one.



Our trip with Herbert was fabulous! He was very accommodating, picking us up from our hotel and then dropping us off at the train station. The via ferrata itself was great, we had a blast. Herbert guided us well through the tougher sections. I felt safe and confident the entire time. We would absolutely book Herbert again, and I was very happy with explore-share. Thanks!



Our guide, Christian, was very experienced and knoweldgeable about the area. The climb is suitable for both beginners and the more confident. Would definately recommend.
