Alta Via Trekking

Trek an Alta Via and See the Dolomites, from Top to Bottom!

Want to see all of the Dolomites? Hiking an Alta Via is a great place to start! These special north-to-south High Routes – or Haute Routes – are designed to maximize your experience here, and offer unparalleled, ever-changing vistas of these jagged mountains! 

The Dolomite Mountains are truly a hiker's paradise, and the long distance Alta Via trails that wind their way across them are perfect for multi-day, hut-to-hut alpine tours, with some of the most breathtaking and challenging terrain available in this vertical wonderland. They are the Haute Routes of the Dolomites!

Ranging from easy hikes to itineraries that include challenging via ferrata, there are eight Alta Via with varying lengths from 6 to 13 days. Each trail traverses a section of the Dolomites from top to bottom, north to south, maintaining medium-high altitude, and exploring spectacular angles of the different mountainous groups of the range. And, on any one of the routes you can expect to see vistas of up to 80% of all the Dolomites! What could be better?

Whichever Alta Via you choose, you’ll experience the breathtaking variation of these mountains, and watch this incredible landscape change right in front of your eyes. The Alta Via truly offer the “best of the best” of the Dolomites!
