Walkers in the Dolomites will find themselves traversing an extraordinary array of landscapes. There are high-altitude lunar-like plateaux where people are dwarfed by soaring peaks, elegant rock spires and breathtaking sheer walls. A slightly lower level means dense evergreen, deciduous forests and sweet alpine meadows. The 28 multi-day routes cover everything from a stroll through woods and meadows to family routes, steep rocky zigzag passages and hands-on clambers.
The walks described in this guidebook have been graded for overall difficulty and range from Grade 1 which refers to clear tracks and paths over straightforward terrain, all of which are suitable for beginners, to Grade 3 which refers to strenuous steep climbs with possible exposed stretches and descents involved.
