Dolomites Hut Hike – Alta Via 1

The Italian Dolomites offer some of the most dramatic, exciting and challenging hiking in the Alps. Strikingly different from the French or Swiss Alps, the limestone Dolomites rise dramatically from narrow valleys to form impressive spires, canyons, sheer rock walls rising 3,000', and huge limestone plateaus. In 2009 several mountain groups in the Dolomites were classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Join us while club member David Thompson takes you on an 7-day, hut-to-hut hike through the Dolomites, described with photographs the beauty of the place and also explaining the logistics involved in preparing for it.
