Four days guided hiking tour around Friuli Dolomites

The Friuli Dolomites are one of the wildest areas of the Dolomites, a mountain range in Northeastern Italy. In fact, the whole region is protected by the Regional Natural Park of Friulian Dolomites.
Beautiful peaks and large isolated valleys, turn this place into a top destination for trekking and mountaineering lovers. Actually, the absence of connecting roads or villages nearby makes Friuli Dolomites an untouched natural environment.
This time, I invite you to a 4-day trekking tour through a unique landscape, with a lot of wildlife. For this trip, our starting point will be Rifugio Pordenone. From there, we'll visit famous spots like Campanile di Val Montanaia, a stunning and lonely tower 300 meters tall, which is also known as 'the illogical mountain'. We'll cross several mountain passes like Monfalcon di Forni pass, the Cason pass and Pramaggiore Pass.
Please contact me if you want to be a part of this trip. I will be glad to be your guide in the Friuli Dolomites.

    I really like guiding here because the environment is so beautiful that is almost unbelievable!
    We will get real chances to see wildlife.
    There is no telephone connection for most of the trip.
    The remoteness of the area, and the complete wilderness.
    Doing a hut-to-hut tour is a great way to explore Dolomites mountains, and enjoy the simple pleasure of walking through these peaks.
