The Alta Via 2 is one of the 6 famous Alta Via treks in the Italian Dolomites. If you are looking for your next challenge, the Alta Via 2 is the perfect match. This trek is full of adrenaline and only suitable for experienced trekkers with surefootedness, experience in the mountains, and a head for heights. The Alta Via 2 includes sharp ridges, Via Ferratas, and steep slopes. Are you brave enough to face it?
The entire Alta Via 2 can be completed in 11 to 14 days. However, not everyone has that much time to spend in the mountains. Therefore, we have created a short route for those who have little time, but want to enjoy this classic Italian adventure. We have created a 4-day itinerary in which you will cover the first stages of this tour, from Brixen to Passo Gardena. This version includes accommodation in Bressanone / Brixen and Passo Gardena. Challenging trails, the possibility of conquering Via Ferrata's, staying in cozy Italian mountain huts and delicious Northern Italian food. Do not forget to enjoy the fantastic views in the Italian Dolomites.
We will take care of arranging accommodation on the Alta Via 2 for you. We will also provide you with a detailed itinerary for every stage and instructions on how to get to the trailhead.
We will send you on your way with a digital travel guide that includes a route description for the Alta Via 2, interactive hiking maps, and the most important information applicable to your trek
During your Alta Via 2, you will spend your nights in mountain huts. In the mountain huts we normally only book dormitories, but we can look into private rooms on request. If the private rooms are fully booked or not available in the hut, we automatically book a bed in dormitories for you. Please note that private rooms are more expensive and there will be an additional charge for this.
Accommodation at the huts includes dinner and breakfast. We will arrange this for you as well. This allows you to travel lighter and have one less thing to worry about. Bear in mind that lunch is not included, but it can be purchased at the huts. Here you can also buy an array of snacks and bottled water.
Accommodation before and after the trek is included. Breakfast is part of your stay.
