Description

Guidebook with separate 1:25,000 map booklet to Alta Via 2, a long-distance trail through the western Dolomites in Italy. This challenging hut-to-hut trek involves steep, technical terrain and aided and exposed sections, and is suitable for walkers with good fitness and experience of high-altitude routes.

  • Includes separate map booklet featuring 1:25,000 Kompass mapping for the entire AV2 route
  • Totalling 108 miles (174km) in length, AV2 is usually walked in 13 daily stages of 5-14 miles (8-22km)
  • Clear route descriptions with 1:75,000 maps and elevation profiles, and side-routes to explore nearby summits and points of interest
  • Advice on walking three- to six-day sections of the route for walkers who prefer not to tackle AV2 in its entirety
  • Starting from Bressanone, the north-south AV2 route crosses Passo Gardena, Passo Pordoi, Malga Ciapela and Passo San Pellegrino, nearing San Martino di Castrozza and Fiera di Primiero before finishing at Feltre
  • Also contains overview maps and route descriptions for Alta Via 3, 4, 5 and 6, four harder and more remote north-south routes in the central and eastern Dolomites
  • Short rope and karabiners helpful for some sections, although not compulsory
  • GPX files available for download
