Three days guided hiking tour around Val Zemola

I'm pleased to invite you to an amazing hut-to-hut trek in the Friuli Dolomites, a region that I love and I know very well.
This program consists in a 3-day trip starting in Erto, the town I live in. During this adventure, we'll be progressively entering in the heart of the Friuli Dolomites. In the middle of this trail, we'll reach the south side of Mt. Duranno, the second highest peak of the area.
At the bottom of this description you will find a more complete itinerary of this 3-day hiking trip.
For any other doubt or if you want to book your place, please contact me now. I will be happy to take you with me and discover together the wonderful vertical world of our mountains, enjoying a great time in the outdoors of Italy.

The Val Zemola tour is suitable for everyone, beginners and experts. We will cross very different environments: we will begin the tour over the town of Erto, where we will take the path that overhangs the Vajont Valley and goes up on mt. Borgà. We will turn right and head to Rifugio Cava Buscada, a former quarry of stone now converted to mountain hut, crossing the high prairies where we can spot marmots and eagles. On the second day from the Cava we will head to the Rifugio Maniago, on the south slopes of Monte Duranno, the second highest peak of the group, and we will stop to take a look at the ibexes in the area. On the third day we will go to Galvana bivouac to close the ring around the valley, we will descend to refresh at the cascade of Pissandol and return to the starting point.

Things you should bring with you


  • Price includes:

    Guiding fee

  • Accomodation:

    Mountain huts (this tour can be done also by sleeping in free bivouacs, but the limit is 6 participants). If you are going to arrive the night before we start the trek, I can book for you a nice hotel nearby and we could meet there.

  • Extras:

    Full room&board for you and the guide (just food if you prefer the bivouacs option).

  • Best season:

    From May to October.
    Eastern Dolomites are not crowded, so you can enjoy your peaceful walk even in August! If you are passionate about alpine flora, may and june are flowering times for a lot of different species of wild orchids in val Zemola!


    It's one of the wildest area in the Dolomites!
    It's a challenging tour, in an amazing habitat, in the heart of Friuli's Dolomites natural Park.
    We can really see the wildlife in its habitat.

    Doing a hut-to-hut tour is a great way to explore Dolomites mountains, and enjoy the simple pleasure of walking through these peaks.
