Dolomites From Braies to the Tre Cime

❍ Open Tour

Join us on our 4-day hut-to-hut hiking tour with departure from Lake Braies and arrival at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

Thanks to the extensive experience of our guides, participating in this multi-day hiking tour and sleeping in "rifugio" is an experience suitable for everyone.

This multi-day tour is recommended for those who want to hike to the foot of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, see Lake Braies and enjoy the beautiful Natural Park Fanes-Sennes-Braies between Cortina d'Ampezzo and Dobbiaco.

We hike every day from hut (“rifugio”) to hut on less popular and more adventurous trails. The difference in altitude is never excessive and our pace adapts to the needs of the group, leaving time to take pictures!
At the end of each day, a cozy "rifugio" is waiting for us to regenerate with good food and a warm bed, leaving us ready to discover new peaks and new horizons on the next day!

The technical level required is not for experts but it is necessary to be fit as we are going to backpack from 5 to 7 hours a day.

Whether alone or in the company of your friends, joining this multi-day tour is something you won't forget - contact us for more information.

We set off early for the most challenging day of all. During the hike, in addition to a spectacular natural environment, we will have the opportunity to stop for lunch in a special place where we can taste typical South Tyrolean dishes.
After lunch, we keep going along a path of medium difficulty that represents the best of true Dolomite hiking.

Prato Piazza » Monte Piana
Altitude difference: 900 meters over 16 kilometers

This third day is less challenging, although there is one steep climb that will make us sweat.
In the afternoon we will have the opportunity to visit historical places of the First World War such as tunnels, trenches and lookout posts about which the guide will tell you many interesting stories.
The "rifugio" where we are going to stay offers one of the most beautiful views you can have in the Dolomites, simply amazing!

Monte Piana » Tre Cime di Lavaredo
Altitude difference: 600 meters over 14 kilometers

The first part of the hike is downhill and then the last effort is uphill to get to the bottom of the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
