Innumerable sign-posted paths and cable car facilities open in summer to bring you up to high altitudes give everyone the opportunity to explore a still unspoiled landscape of rare beauty. During the hot summer months a break in one of the traditional alpine huts and refuges provides pleasant moments of relaxation and recreation with invaluable moments of freshness. During the cold winter months the huts are ideal for escaping the snow and the cold weather after a hike.
A hike from hut to hut is ideal for all those who love the mountains, but also want to taste various traditional dishes and the specialties of this beautiful territory of the Dolomites and all its history.
