Guided hiking tour in the Dolomites - hut to hut through Marmolada, Sella and Sassolungo

This is one of the most renowned itineraries of the Dolomites. It leads to the discovery of the most scenic landscapes of Val di Fassa while enjoying an extraordinary variety of natural sceneries. 

The itinerary we are presenting you goes from Marmolada, the largest glacier of the Dolomites, to Viel del Pan, the vast alpine pastures overlooking Lake Fedaia to then reach the desert of rocks in the heart of Sella mountain group. Here, the conquer of Piz Boè begins. With its 3.152 m a.s.l. Piz Boè represents the highest peak of Sella massif, although it is considered one of the easiest 3000 peaks of the Dolomites. The route continues crossing the wild Val Lasties to reach the vertical walls of Sassolungo and finally dive through the fairytale meadows of Val Duron.

Three dolomites' groups connected in a single hut to hut hiking tour which passes through the iconic symbols of Val di Fassa.
