Amy and thru-hiked the Alta Via 1 in August of last year. Our trip report can be found at: doingmiles.com/2022-08-italy-av1/Have any of you done the Alta Via 1 route in the Dolomites in Italy? This is now on my bucket list and I want to do it.
Love to get some insight and suggestions.
This was our first trip in the Dolomites and we enjoyed the walk quite a lot. We discuss the issue in our report, but the big choice you must make is whether to camp or use the refuges. There are plus and minuses for both options. We camp because we like the freedom of not having to be at a particular lodge on a particular day and neither of us want to sleep in the communal rooms. But the lodges make eating easy and you don't have to carry as much gear. Enjoy your walk. James
