All Dolomites hiking tours

Our guide, Ivan was excellent. He managed a group of differing ages and fitness levels very well and was always interested and interesting.

Amazing experience. The Dolomites are special place. Using Dolomite Mountains really takes all of the legwork and uncertainty out of the trip so you can focus on having fun. Probably exchanged two or three emails and before I knew it I was all set to have the trip of a lifetime.

I was looking forward to the experiences/adventures of hiking in the region of the Pre-Alps at the foot of the Dolomites because of how beautiful the area is. It was obvious throughout the tour how much this area means to Piero. The trip far exceeded any expectations. Piero is the consummate guide: knowledgeable, patient, spontaneous, flexible, and more. The pleasure he gains from planning surprises or continually having new ideas to add more interest or fun is indeed a gift to us. Each day was amazing. I not only wholeheartedly recommend Piero’s tour and I’m planning to return in 2024.

Best hiking tours in the Dolomites

  • Alta Via I & II

The “High Routes” are immersive trails that traverse the entire length of the Dolomites. Alta Via 1 is considered the most scenic, while Alta Via 2 is known for its challenging climbs and off-the-beaten-path sections.

  • Cortina d’Ampezzo

Cortina is a charming resort town surrounded by countless hiking trails, from easy lakeside strolls to challenging climbs. Popular hikes include the panoramic circuit around the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and the challenging trek to the top of Tofana di Mezzo.

  • Tre Cime di Lavaredo

A must-do for any visitor to the Dolomites, this loop trail circles the Three Peaks of Lavaredo, offering breathtaking views from every angle. The day hike is relatively easy, making it suitable for most fitness levels.

More about Dolomites hiking tours

  • The best month to hike in the Dolomites depends on what you’re looking for. Here’s a quick breakdown:

    • July and August: The peak summer months, with the warmest weather and the longest daylight hours. This is also the busiest time to hike in the Dolomites, so expect larger crowds on the trails.
    • June and September: Shoulder months offer good weather for hiking, with fewer crowds than July and August. However, there is a higher chance of encountering snow on some higher-elevation trails in June, and some mountain huts may be closed in September.

    If you prioritize warm weather and don’t mind the crowds, go between July & August. Alternatively, if you want to have the Dolomites on your own but aren’t afraid of dealing with bad weather, choose June or September.

  • There are many spectacular multi-day hikes in the Dolomites, but the Alta Via I is arguably the most beautiful and comprehensive trail in the entire range.

    This classic “high route” trail traverses the entire length of the Dolomites, offering a true immersion into the heart of this mountain range. You will encounter soaring peaks, lush valleys, crystal-clear lakes, and dramatic WWI battlefields. Alta Via 1 is a hut-to-hut hiking trip typically completed in sections, making it ideal for experienced backpackers seeking an unforgettable adventure.

    If you’re looking for the most beautiful day hike in the Dolomites has to be the Tre Cime di Lavaredo loop. There’s a reason why it’s so popular, after all.

  • The Dolomites offer hikes of varying difficulty, with plenty of options for hikers of all skill levels.

    Most hikes in the Dolomites, like the Alta Via I, fall into the intermediate category. These trails involve more elevation gain and may have steeper sections, but they are still achievable for most hikers with a decent fitness level.

    However, the Dolomites also offer plenty of gentle walks and family-friendly trails. These are often located around valleys or lakes and have minimal elevation gain. Some iconic sights, like parts of Cortina d’Ampezzo, are accessible along these easier trails.

    For experienced hikers, there are plenty of challenging hikes with significant elevation gain, scree fields (loose rock), and potentially exposed sections. Alta Via 2 and many of the Via Ferratas are considered challenging multi-day hikes with some technical sections.

  • Your Dolomites trekking tour can be more or less expensive, depending on what you want to get out of it.

    On the lower end, expend to spend $100-150 a day. This involves staying in hostels, packing lunches, using public transport, and opting for mostly self-guided hikes.

    An average trip will cost you $150- $250 per day. This allows for staying in mid-range hotels, eating at restaurants occasionally, taking some gondolas/cable cars, and going on guided day hikes.

    A Luxury Traveler can expect to spend $250+ per day. This includes luxury mountain huts, gourmet meals, car rentals, and potentially private guided tours.

    A guided, all-inclusive Dolomites hiking tour is always a great option, as you’ll eliminate unnecessary expenses that come from errors in planning.

  • As many as possible!

    But seriously, it depends on what you want to get out of the experience.

    If you just want a taste of trekking in the Dolomites and plan on doing some light hiking or sightseeing around iconic spots like Tre Cime di Lavaredo, 2-3 days is enough. This is a good option if you’re short on time or the Dolomites are just one stop on a larger European itinerary.

    4-7 days is the sweet spot for most hikers. You’ll have time to tackle some moderate hikes, explore different valleys and towns, and soak in the beauty of the region.

    If you’re a serious hiker or simply want to relax and savor the mountain atmosphere, a week or more is ideal. You can conquer challenging multi-day hikes like Alta Via 1 or 2 , or take your time exploring lesser-known corners of the Dolomites.
