Dolomites Trekking - Av1  free pdf As a trekking destination the Italian Dolomites has few peers. Juxtaposing dramatic mountain scenery with picture-perfect Tyrolean villages, and flower-filled alpine meadows with poignant WWI battlefields, this small yet exquisite range rarely fails to enchant and beguile those who visit. This guide has been re-researched and updated to include the two most popular long-distance hikes in the Dolomites--the Alta Via 1 (AV1) and the Alta Via 2 (AV2) as well as shorter walks.

It's a nine to fouteen day walk which begins at Lago di Braies in Val Pusteria running along a trail which connects a network of high mountain refuges south to Belluno. The Alta Via 2 is the longest alta via of them all, taking ten to sixteen days. >55 detailed trekking maps--showing route times, places to stay, and points of interest: >Alta Via 1 (nine-fourteen days) >Alta Via 2 (ten-sixteen days) >15 short treks (one-five days) >Practical information--planning the trip and getting to Italy from other countries in Europe, North America, and Australasia >Historical and cultural background--with comprehensive sections on the legends and culture of the indigenous Ladin people >Cortina, Bolzano, and ten other towns and villages--detailed street plans, where to stay, where to eat, what to see, and getting to the start of a trek >Green hiking, health, and safety--how to stay healthy on a hike and minimize impact on a fragile region >Italian language section >Flora and fauna--four-page full-color guide to the flowers of the Dolomites, plus an illustrated bird identification section
