High Route of the Little Dolomites
17 - 20 JULY

A spectacular south-north traverse of the Little Dolomites group along the European E5 trail.
Straddling the former borders of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the present provinces of Verona, Trent and Vicenza.
We will cross the Carega group, the eastern slope of Sengio Alto and the Sacred Zone of Pasubio, and then descend to the Adige Valley to complete the loop by public transportation.
From the Italian rear to the field of the bloodiest battle and then visiting ancient enemy territory, crossing Dolomite mountains in all their aspects.
The history of the Cimbri and the events of the Great War through places of incomparable beauty.
Small Dolomites, big emotions!
From Giazza to the Scalorbi refuge, we explore the Terre Cimbre.
From the quaint village of Giazza, which we will reach by bus, we will climb through beautiful forests, pastures and alpine meadows to Monte Terrazzo.
Over the Zevola, Tre Croci and Plische passes, among Dolomite spires, we will arrive at the end of our stage, in the Campobrun basin.

Overnight stay at the Scalorbi refuge at 1,760 meters above sea level
From the Scalorbi refuge to Pian delle Fugazze, Cima Carega and the Sengio Alto group.
Early in the morning we will climb to the highest peak of the group and then descend the steep Boale dei Fondi to reach the Campogrosso Refuge, we will continue along the King’s Road where the over 100-meter suspension bridge awaits us.
Passing by the Pasubio Ossuary we will arrive at Pian delle Fugazze where the Albergo al Passo will welcome us.

Who's your guide??
In dolomiti Beat we are all AMM Certified by the College of Alpine Guides of Veneto, to guarantee you maximum safety and professionalism and think only of your enjoyment!
Always "sick" of Mountains and Nature in general, born and raised in the countryside, just outside Verona and the Lessini Mountains.
Enrolled almost as a joke in the Medium Mountain Companion course organized by the College of Mountain Guides of Veneto.
During the challenging training, with wonderful and passionate colleagues we "discovered" a new way of going to the mountains: slower, more mindful.
For the past two years I have been accompanying people in "my" mountains and around Italy, with projects even across borders.
Most of all, I like to explore places outside the crowd and take advantage of all seasons to frequent both sea and mountains.
