BLOG | 4 Days hiking on the Alta Via Dolomiti

Although I would love to hike the complete Alta Via Dolomiti, I knew that I could never convince my friend to join me on a trip like that. Every year we plan a little trip together. Do something memorable. 4 hours, 4 days or 2 weeks, it doesn’t matter. We know each other since we are four or five years old, it’s a beautiful thing to have a history with someone that goes back that far. Even more beautiful when it’s a history full of adventure. We are dreaming of spending the winter on Gran Canaria for ages (and it probably will be), but we can still do that when we are old. So this year it would be a trekking through the mountains, the Italian Dolomites! Hiking the Alta Via Dolomiti. The first trekking together and Caroline’s first trekking ever. Let the adventure begin!!

  1. Hi Eva! Amazing photos. I wanted to ask you: was it difficult to figure out a way back from the Camping Sass Dlacia to the Pragser Wildsee? We’re hoping to do a similar route as you, but this is the one part we can’t really seem to figure out. Would love to hear more about how you did this part if you’re willing to share!
