Hiking the DolomitesHiking the Dolomites is nothing short of magical. Hiking 8miles of intermediate terrain in around 4 hours still wasn't enough to soak up the 360 degree beauty that is this UNESCO site.
Highly recommend stopping by the visitor center and getting a suggestion from the knowledgeable team in Sëlva for the level of difficulty of hike you'd like to make - as their are easy to novice paths all throughout the mountain range. The gondolas in several locations will help kickstart or wind down your path depending on the area of the range you'd like to explore. My crew started in Sëlva, hitched a gondola ride at Funivie Ciampinoi and hiked through Alpe di Siusi ending in Santa Cristina Gherdëina, landing us in some incredible rolling hills as well as high peaks and proximity to the towering alps. There are several restaurants throughout the trails to stop and nosh or sip before you continue your journey.
What seems like endless "wow" moments of spectacular views around each corner, wild horses, picturesque fields peppered with cabins and wildflowers galore left me in a lovesick stupor. Skiing is great and all, but in my book nothing can quite top my list of favorite places on earth quite like the Dolomites in June.
