Guide to 28 multi-day walks and treks in the Dolomites. The routes range between 2 to 4 days in length and there are options to shorten or lengthen the routes. The majority are rewarding ring routes or extended traverses linking different valleys. A couple of days at a time are spent traversing the high reaches, with overnight stays in excellent huts. Where relevant, there is cross-referencing to enable walkers to vary or link up more itineraries, not to mention alternative exit or access routes. On the other hand, shorter sections can be cut off for day walks where a return to base is desired. The walks described in this guidebook have been graded for overall difficulty and range from Grade 1 which refers to clear tracks and paths over straightforward terrain, all of which are suitable for beginners, to Grade 3 which refers to strenuous steep climbs with possible exposed stretches and descents involved.
