High Routes, from lodge to lodge

with no car, no schedule, and no stress

 

High Route of the Dolomites n.2

With a route of about 180km, composed of 13 legs, it connects Bressanone (BZ) to Feltre (BL).

The itinerary goes through eight groups of the Dolomites and thirty mountain passes, at an average altitude of 2000 to 3000 metres. It skirts a series of over 3000m high peaks, and a few small but spectacular lakes. The High Route of the Dolomites n.2 is known as “The Road of legends”, as it traverses places made famous by ancient fables: from the woundrous Odle cliffs – the mythical realm of the characters from the Ladin sagas – to the high and remote icy wide valleys of the Feltre Peaks that over the centuries widespread fantasy has populated with devils, witches and ogres.

 

High Route of the Dolomites n.8

This is a route of about 63km, composed of 4 legs, that connects Feltre (BL) with Bassano del Grappa (VI). The itinerary is also known with the name of “High Road of the Heroes” because it goes through an area that even today tells the deeds of the many soldiers and civilians protagonists of the Great War.

The route starts in Feltre, in the Piave valley, and ends in Bassano del Grappa, in the Brenta valley. These are two big rivers that mark the borders of this pre-alpine track that goes from  the north-east to the south-west and which measures exactly 30km as the crow flies, while it reaches about 63km on the path. The High Route n.8 passes through the entire Grappa Massif.

 

The “Cammino delle Dolomiti” path 

A peaceful and quiet route, on roads, tracks and paths that are as far away from cars as possible. Suitable for everyone, it avoids arduous tracks but also reaches medium or high altitudes in correspondence with the mountain passes. It lends itself to being travelled through together (tourists, families, groups) to favour discovery and reflection on the extraordinary natural environment that characterises the Belluno province.

Our advice is to traverse the Cammino delle Dolomiti path bit by bit, maybe one leg every year, and collect the “credential” where to put the stamps that show the route covered. The path is marked by small white metallic plaques with the Cammino delle Dolomiti logo and by the double yellow-red stripe along the tracks and the roads.
