The 150-kilomter Alta Via 1, or “High Road 1,” is the crème de la crème way to tour Italy’s spectacular Dolomites on foot. Enjoy breathtaking panoramas of jagged, snow-capped peaks and sparkling blue lakes during the day, then cozy up at night in trekking huts along the way; hut reservations must be made in advance, and they fill up fast. Camping is not permitted along the route. July through September offers the best window for snow-free trail running. Several different routes accommodate varying itineraries, so do your research to determine which path you follow.
