Breathtaking Hikes in the Heart of the Dolomites

Discover the unusual beauty of the Dolomites by foot, with these 3 hikes around Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Description

The stunning rock beauty of the Dolomite’s sawtoothed peaks has earned this epic northeastern Italian mountain range UNESCO world heritage status and attracts flocks of outdoors enthusiasts each year. In the wintertime, Cortina d’Ampezzo is a popular and very chic ski resort. But as the snow begins to melt, the white caps give way to fiery red rock and green pastures, the accommodation prices drop, and the hikers come to town.

Well-signed routes will lead you through lush forests and flower-filled meadows, all the way up to sparkling turquoise alpine lakes, and to quaint mountain inns. So put on your hiking boots, and navigate your way around one of these three hiking adventures.
