Day 2:    Bus to Lake Braies and walk to Sennes plateaux, 9km

Our first day of walk is challenging but extremely rewarding: along the way incredible views like the romantic Braies Lake and the Rifugio Biella, at the feet of the imposing Croda del Becco mountain. Your accommodation for tonight is Rifugio Fodara, a mountain shelter immersed in a peaceful scenery of meadows and huts, with the peaks of Croda Rossa d’Ampezzo, Crystal and Fanes mountains as a background. 

Ascent: +979m, Descent: -342m

Day 3:    From Sennes to Fanes plateaux, 10km

Today’s itinerary runs through a suggestive, almost lunar landscape: one of the highlights along the way is the Lake Piciodel, with its typical green color. After a long descent to the Pederu hut we start our final ascent to the Fanes plateau: here we will sleep in a mountain hut surrounded by trees and rugged peaks, in the heart of Fanes, Sennes & Braies National Park.

Ascent: +592; Discent: -664m

Day 4:    From Fanes to Rifugio Lagazuoi or Rifugio Valparola, 12km

This day is full of highlights: Starting from the hut in Fanes, we walk to the Limo Pass and to the nearby Limo Lake. We then continue to the beautiful Lagazuoi Alp, with the small but enchanting Lake Lagazuoi, a bright blue spot surrounded by ragged peaks: this area is famous for its underground tunnels and trenches built during WWI. 

Ascent: +846m; Descent: -375m

Day 5:    From Rifugio Lagazuoi to Rifugio Fedare, 10 km

From the hut you descend to Falzarego Pass before starting climbing towards the top of Mount Averau. Today’s walk is challenging, but the beautiful scenery is definitely worth our efforts: the Rifugio Nuvolau, that we meet along our walk, is said to offer some of the most beautiful views in the Dolomites area. 

Ascent: +666m; Descent: -510m

Day 6:    From Passo Giau to Passo Staulanza, 13 km

Today a short transfer will lead us to the top of Passo Giau. We will walk across the beautiful and wild Val Cernera: the views are incredible, from jagged peaks to peaceful meadows. Along the walk, we can reach with a short detour the Mesolithic site of Mondeval, where in 1985 a well-preserved skeleton of a hunter of Mesolithic age was found.
From Monte Pelmo, we will descend to Passo Staulanza our your overnight.

 Ascent: +573; Descent: -1038m

Day 7:    From Passo Staulanza to Rifugio Tissi, 11km

Today’s destination is Rifugio Tissi, located in a panoramic position at 2262 metres. If we have some energy left, we'll walk to the nearby peak of the Col Rean, with great views on the valley of Alleghe and the rugged peaks all around. 

Ascent: +1060m; Discent: -572m

Luggage transfer does not arrive to Rifugio Tissi, so you should pack your clothes for the night before leaving from Passo Staulanza. You'll find your luggage on your next hotel.

Day 8:    Descend to Cortina, 10 km

Today we will descend through the high Val Civetta and Sella di Pelsa along flower fields, mountain paths and Alpine huts where we can have a nice break in the Alpine garden overlooking the beautiful Valle Corpassa. From here we will descend to the Rifugio Capanna Trieste, where a transfer will take us to Cortina d'Ampezzo for our last night in the Dolomites.

Ascent: +94m; Descent: -1327m

Day 9:    Goodbye Dolomites!
