Hike the Trails & Towns of the Dolomites

Discover Eisacktal, Val di Funes, and the Marebbe side of Val Badia! Towering peaks and rock walls combine with stunning towns steeped in history to make the perfect itinerary in the Dolomites! 

Trip Overview

In our trails and towns of the Dolomites itinerary, you’ll discover incredible mountain landscapes and hike countless trails that wind through valleys, weave across passes, and meander through beautiful villages, leading you to a surprising wealth of culture to explore!
You’ll hike amidst glorious landscapes of pillars, pinnacles, and colossal rock walls and discover the famous “Keschtnweg" – the Eisacktal Chestnut Trail, staying in perfectly appointed, hand-selected hotels in San Vigilio di Marebbe. Over the next 2 days, you’ll hike the Adolf Munkel Trail and the Günter Messner Trail, where you’ll stop and stay in a cozy traditional mountain inn. After your authentic rifugio experience, you’ll continue your journey with an exciting loop around the majestic Sass de Putia / Peitlerkofel (2,875m / 9432') and finish the trip with a wonderful hike out & back from Pederü to Lavinores.
We think this incredible itinerary offers the best of both worlds – not only will you get to explore the towering cliffs of the Dolomites, carved over millennia by the elements, but also the towering spires of cathedrals and castles, carved by the hands of man. And we can’t forget the unique Dolomites culture. Warm, generous hospitality serving some of the most delicious mountain cuisine. It’s almost like two trips in one!

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.

To learn even more about rifugi in the Dolomites, check out our Rifugios in the Dolomites article, and learn about one of the best ways to experience these incredible mountains!

Still want more? Why not extend your adventure!
Dolomite Mountains offers fantastic extensions that you can enjoy before or after your trip in the Dolomites. Explore VeniceVeronaLake GardaFlorence, or Milan, or any of the many other magical places found throughout Italy. There's no more perfect way to recover from jet lag upon arrival, or delay your return to reality at the end of your trip!
