For many mountaineers (of all nationalities and not just Italians) the Dolomites are the most beautiful mountains in the world!
They are certainly among the most unusual and anyone seeing these solemn towers, crenellated ruins and lunar like scenery will not forget them. For questions regarding late snow, the proposed hikes are not possible until the middle of June. Depending on the period you choose, you can admire the colour variations of the rock faces, the typical flora of limestone mountains (although critical of the massive rock, dolomite, is not, strictly speaking, limestone) and of course the usual mountain fauna at these altitudes: marmots, chamois, ibex, golden eagles and hawks and a prodigious amount of insects adapted to these harsh conditions.

The region's tumultuous history is marked by challenges between rival Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire (these routes are all paths formed during the 1914-1918 War, trails which are also nicknamed the Road to Peace, WW1 left numerous traces which you will see along the tour). The Dolomites also seduce you with their dual culture of German and Italian blended to create a very distictive ambiance. You will hear German and Italian spoken and in certain valleys the original local language Ladin. Due to this mix of languages you will frequently find topographical indications in three languages, alternately or even simultaneously! Do not be surprised if you see the different waymarkers marked "Forcella", or "Scharte" or "Ju" for the mountain pass, or the shelter where you spend the night is called either "Rifugio" "Hütte" or "Ütia"...
