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

Alta Via 2 is a classical hiking tour among 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. Three dolomites groups connected in a single hut to hut hiking tour which passes through the iconic symbols of Val di Fassa.

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 layered rocks in the heart of Sella mountain group. From 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 3-thousander dolomitic peaks most easily accessible. The route continues crossing the wild Val Lasties to then reach the imposing walls of Sassolungo and finally dive in the fairytale meadows of Val Duron.
