The Alta Via 1 is Italy's highlight long-distance hiking trail and leads awe-struck hikers through the Dolomites from north to south. This route is famous, and for very good reason. Along the way are a multitude of comfortable mountain huts. What makes this tour truly stand out is the World War I history, as it passes by former battlefields, fortification remnants, and other clues that this serene environment was not always so peaceful. We recommend doing some reading on World War I history in the Dolomites before the tour, to make it that much more interesting.
There are multiple variations to the Alta Via 1, and we have chosen primarily routes that are comfortable for most hikers, meaning minimum exposure. A via ferrata lies at the very end of the Alta Via I, but our route exits beforehand. If you are interested in the via ferrata, please reach out to us and let us know, so we can plan your tour accordingly.
