    • Assessing the AV2 trail and recomendation where to escape after the 5th day

      Dolomiti Yesterday

      Hi,
      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:

      Questions:
      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 .

      Thanks!

      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

      Giro dei Cinque Laghi (In July)

      Madonna di Campiglio Jul 5, 2016 at 2:44 PM

      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.

    • Trekking in Pale di San Martino

      by sana1010 Online Now Feb 1, 2016 at 11:10 AM

      Hi -

      We're planning a few days' hike in the Dolomites, in Pale di San Martino, and I did help planning it....

      I did a lovely hike about 20 years ago - but I can't remember the details... I know at least a par of it was part of the Alte Via 2. I started with the cable car from San Martino to Rosetta hut, then walked about 3 hours to another hut, stayed the night there, and continued next day to another hut, from there came down and found my way back to San Martino... I'm almost sure the first hut was Pradidali, but I have no idea which was the second one... I would like to do something similar this year - in July - but need more info about trails and huts.

      Any suggestion for a trek that starts with this cable car, then has about 3-4 hours of walking to the next hut where we can spend the night, and from which we can continue to another trail of 3-4 hours to another hut - from which we can walk back to San Martino - will be very much appreciated. Another option is to stay 2 nights in the same mountain hut - and doing a day walk in between.

      So I need advice on -

      Option A: San Martino - cable car - Rosetta - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 2 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep downhill) , back to - San Martino

      Option B: San Martino - cable car - Rosetta - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep)  back to  Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep downhill) , back to - San Martino

      Thanks a lot in advance,

      Ana.
