Description

Crossing the eastern Dolomites, the Alta Via Dolomiti 3 is a tough 100km, 8-day-long high altitude hiking challenge, suitable for fit, experienced hikers only.

Running from Villabassa Niederdorf south to Longarone, the trail crosses a total of 5 Dolomite ranges, all with their own unique topography.

The hike starts in the Braies Dolomites, passes through The Sorapiss Group, Marmarole, Pelmo-Rite and finishes in Bosconero.

Hikers are pushed to their limits with steep climbs, intense descents, loose rocks underfoot, and of course, high altitude conditions.

As well as the glistening alpine lakes, fantastic sunsets, and striking peaks, the trail also leads you through some of the Dolomites most treasured historical sites, including medieval castles and battlegrounds from WWI.
