Deep in Italy's Northern Alps rest the Dolomites Mountain Range. By no means is this an easy destination to get to but it is worth every minute of the journey and then some. It is connected by a network of 4 or 5 small towns and lifts that usher you to every range. The hiking is amazing and ranges from easy/beginner to expert and left me in amazement every 100 meters. This is a perfect place to gear up and get lost as the views are amazing at every point in the mountains. The huge bonus is when you end your journey they have plenty of cafes and restaurants to refuel, serving great Italian and German fare for you on and off the mountains.
