My partner and I are planning to arranged to do the first 5 days of Alta Via 2 in the Dolomites. We hike quite a bit but is always just for 1 or 2 days at a time. We are trying to get a better idea of the trail to make sure it is not beyond our capabilities. Our days, along the AV2, are listed below:
1. Can someone comment on what kind of equipment we need and what kind of equiptment is helpful (hiking poles vs. ferratas kits)l. We want to avoid via ferratas.
2. On day 5/6 is there a good place to finish the hike and get back into town. We want to make our way back to Milan .
Day 1 Bressanone to Rifugio Ditta di Bressanone Cicerone book difficulty rating: 2
Day 2 to Rifugio Genova 2
Day 3 to Rifugio Puez 2-3
Day 4 to Rifugio Pisciadu 3
Day 5 to Rifugio Castiglioni 3
Day 6 to Rifugio Castiglioni 2
We would like to stay as close as posible to the mountains, with good transport to start of the route/ cable car.and any high routes to recommend we aim to go in September
Thank you for your help
Rob and Jill
I have heard about this trail route on-line, and seen some videos, however I cannot find comments regarding this. We are interested in spending a day trekking during our stay in Madonna di Campiglio and this trail route seems to be ideal with 13.6km. Do we need any particular equipment for the trail, and does it involve any climbing? Would a guide be necessary? Or should a GPS with the trail be enough? We will be a group of 4 friends (early 20s), most of which are active.
