Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
UK, 2012, 2nd edition. 270 pp, 200+ maps, photos. A handy guidebook to day walks in the Italian Dolomites. The 50 graded walks range from short leisurely strolls to full-day high mountain expeditions, each designed to fit into a single day. The Dolomites are an ideal walking destination in both summer and winter, and can easily be reached from Verona, Treviso, Venice and Innsbruck airports.
 
The Dolomites of northeast Italy are blessed with vast forests, high-altitude rocky landscapes and seas of beautiful wildflowers, making them ideal for walking in summer.

Shorter Walks in the Dolomites by Gillian Price has something for everyone here, from high mountain walks with strenuous climbs for experienced walkers, to leisurely family strolls through the valleys. Each walk described in this guidebook can be completed in a single day.

The extensive network of trains and buses across the Dolomites is refreshingly inexpensive, easy to use and unfailingly reliable. All but two of the 50 walks start and finish at a point accessible by local transport.

Visit the Dolomites between June and October for walking, unless you’re equipped with showshoes or skis. From early summer many low-altitude walks are feasible, but it’s worth waiting until July for high-altitude routes to be free of late-lying snow.

  • 50 day walks, graded for difficulty
  • the range is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • all the background and planning information you need, including an Italian–German–English glossary
