Description

Enjoy the beauty of Campanile di Val Montanaia, also known as “the ilogic mountain”, in this 1-day hiking tour in the Dolomites.

Montanaia Valley is a wild region of the Frulian Dolomites. Its most symbolic peak is Campanile di Val Montanaia, an isolated rock pinnacle standing in a mountain pass. It’s 300 m tall and really looks like a bell tower.

This peak was also called “the petrified scream of a damned” by the famous Italian writer Mauro Corona. Don’t you wanna come and see it with your eyes?

During this 1-day trip we’ll hike up the Montanaia Valley for about 900 meters on the gravel, but the unbelievable sight from the glacial circus on top will pay back the effort.

If you are looking forward to seeing some wildlife, this trip is a great opportunity for that.

Please contact me if you want to be a part of this hike in an incredible spot of the Dolomites!

Accommodation

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
