Dolomites Hikes

Hiking Tre Cime di Lavaredo & Fanes-Sennes-Braies

Explore Cortina d’Ampezzo, one of the best-known regions of the Dolomites, on this 6-day hiking adventure! Hike amidst glorious landscapes of pillars, pinnacles, and colossal rock walls, and enjoy the welcoming hospitality of a different cozy mountain inn each night!

Trip Overview

On this hiking adventure, you’ll get an in-depth taste of one of the most well known areas of the Dolomites – Cortina d’Ampezzo. You’ll explore Cortina’s natural highlights on foot – including hiking around Tre Cime di Lavaredo, perhaps the best most recognizable trio of peaks in the Dolomites, and taking in some of the best vistas of the red-stained Croda Rossa Mountain. You’ll travel from hut to hut, experiencing the welcoming hospitality and incredible hearty meals of traditional Dolomites cooking. And travel near the Austrian border, experience ruins of the WWI conflict and the Italian and Austrian involvement. Plus you’ll begin and finish your trip in the charming alpine resort town Cortina d’Ampezzo itself!

The majestic Dolomite Mountains offer so many incredible areas to hike and explore, it’s hard to choose just one. But the advantage of selecting a single area for your trip is that you can get to know the area more intimately. That’s why we created our Hiking Around the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park – it’s the perfect way to explore the Cortina area of the Dolomites, in just six days!

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!

Want to learn more about our Mountain Inns & Rifugi?             
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.
The Dolomite rifugi are considered the best in the Alps. 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.
