The Alta Via 2 hiking tour in the Dolomites, known as "The Path of Legends", follows a 180km itinerary that goes from north-west towards south-east crossing several dolomitic mountain ranges such as Plose, Putia, Odle, Puez, Sella, Padon, Bocche peak, Pale di San Martino and Alpi Feltrine. 

One of the best multi-day hikes in the Dolomites from hut to hut that will lead you to the discovery of the second-half of the "High Route", in its wildest area that runs from Valles Pass to Feltre, walking along the incredible and imposing vertical walls of Pale di San Martino until the vast verdant hollows of Vette Feltrine.

This hiking itinerary - considered as one of the most fascinating in the western Dolomites - runs at an average altitude of 2.100 m with peaks close to 3.000 m and involves some via ferrata sections partly equipped with metal rope.
