9781873756836: Dolomites Trekking - AV1 & AV2, 2nd: Italy Trekking Guides (Trailblazer Italy Trekking Guides)

As a trekking destination the Italian Dolomites has few peers. Juxtaposing dramatic mountain scenery with picture-perfect Tyrolean villages, and flower-filled alpine meadows with poignant WWI battlefields, this small yet exquisite range rarely fails to enchant and beguile those who visit. This guide has been re-researched and updated to include the two most popular long-distance hikes in the Dolomites--the Alta Via 1 (AV1) and the Alta Via 2 (AV2) as well as shorter walks.

The Alta Via 1 is the classic high level traverse of the Venetian Dolomites, from north to south. It's a nine to fouteen day walk which begins at Lago di Braies in Val Pusteria running along a trail which connects a network of high mountain refuges south to Belluno. The Alta Via 2 is the longest alta via of them all, taking ten to sixteen days.

>55 detailed trekking maps--showing route times, places to stay, and points of interest:
>Alta Via 1 (nine-fourteen days)
>Alta Via 2 (ten-sixteen days)

About the Author:

Henry Stedman studied economics at Bristol University in England but not even the undoubted thrill of neoclassical endogenous growth theory could keep him from his current calling as a travel writer. He has been writing guidebooks for more than seven years now and is the author or coauthor of half a dozen titles including Trailblazer's guides to Kilimanjaro and Coast to Coast, The Bradt Guide to Palestine and the Rough Guides to Indonesia and Southeast Asia. When not trekking or traveling, he lives in Hastings, editing other people's guidebooks and putting on weight.

Tristam Jones updated this second edition, adding the Alta Via 1 trail. He is an experienced alpine hiker.
