Two mountain ranges, two regions, two parks: different environments for structure and nature, both World Heritage Sites, united by the continuous line of the Alta Via n. 2
Alta Via n. 2 connects the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park and the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Natural Park, places where biodiversity manifests in all its beauty. The great richness and rarity of the flora makes the former a botanical jewel, while the latterexalts the geological and forestry beauties.

Part of the tour is equipped and classified as EEA (expert hikers with equipment). Therefore it’s important to have the right equipment.
Choose the route according to your experience and your physical preparation: start with short distances first!
The more, the merrier: leaving alone for a hike can be risky, travel with at least one other person, the experience of a Trekking is better when shared with friends and family!
Program your Trekking in advance, check trails and paths on the maps, have a look online to find out more about your itinerary, ask somebody who already walked the same route.
Prepare your backpack: have a look at our check-list to be sure you already packed all the equipment you may need during the Trekking!
Don’t forget to check the weather forecast.
If you really want to try the experience of a Trekking but you don’t feel ready to do it by your own, just ask one of our Alpine Guides!
Try to estimate an average journey-time of every route, considering the physical condition of each member of the group.
Inform the Hut owner or who is waiting for you at home about your time of arrival and the itinerary.
Keep your eyes open: while you’re walking, check the number of each footpath, but don’t forget to enjoy nature and its magic!
A plan B is always a good idea! Organize an alternative route in case of bad weather or unforeseen event: go back if it’s necessary, play it safe!
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
From the Pradidali refuge, you go up Passo di Ball following path 715; when you reach the pass, you descend toward Col dele Fede using the equipped trail, along which you should be careful, especially in case of wet rock. You then turn right onto path 702 to Rosetta refuge.
