- Discover a wilder side of the Dolomite Mountains – the Friulian Dolomites
- Hike through stunning alpine landscapes – from rock spires to plunging valleys, scree slopes to meadows full of wildflowers
- Enjoy rifugio nights in comfortable yet rustic accommodation
- Explore a rugged, less well-known side of the Dolomites, with remarkable daily altitude gains, as exhilarating as it is challenging!
- This itinerary is part of our commitment to responsible travel and our partnership with The Long Run, one of the world's largest sustainable development initiatives led by nature-based businesses.
Note: Because of the rugged, wild, and remote nature of the Friulian Dolomites, unless you are a very experienced hiker, we highly recommend taking this trip as a guided adventure. While trails are well marked, you will not encounter many other hikers in the area, and English is less spoken than in other areas of the Dolomites. An added benefit? With a guide, you can take advantage of the beautiful off-trail detours available.

Want to learn more about our Hotels and B&Bs?
The Dolomites has a multi-faceted culture and history that is reflected in each village we visit, and we make sure to provide you with the most authentic experience of the region possible through the hotels and B&Bs we offer. Hotels and chalets are available in the larger villages, while agriturismos (working farms with accommodations similar to B&Bs) are more common in rural areas. And we always make sure you have access to inspired regional cuisine and the best panoramas you can get in the Dolomites!
Rifugi – or mountain huts in English – are the classic accommodation for hikers, climbers, mountaineers, and ski mountaineers in the Alps. Set in spectacular locations high in the Dolomites, rifugi are accessible only on foot (with a few exceptions that are reachable by car). These marvelous establishments are open primarily in the summer, with a select few in winter, and offer meals and sleeping facilities.
While some are dormitory style with bunk beds, many meet the standard of a simple guest house with private rooms and en-suite bathrooms, and each has its own unique character and charm. Bedding and linens are provided, hot showers are available, and meals are served in common dining areas – like a small mountain inn set high in the mountains with the most incredible vistas in the Dolomites. Whether you’re hiking in summer or skiing in winter, an overnight rifugio stay is not to miss on a Dolomite holiday.

VIA FERRATA OPTION
Add a day (or more!) of climbing via ferrata with one of our UIAGM/IFMGA professional mountain guides! The vie ferrate, or iron paths of the Dolomites, allow non-climbers to discover the mountains in safety and adding a new dimension to hiking the pristine alpine wilderness of the Dolomites. Contact us for details!
