Day 1

Individual arrival at the hotel in Hochpustertal. Free, unguarded public car park near the hotel.

Day 2

ascent approx. 775 m, descent approx. 1.075 m / approx. 5 - 6 hours

Starting at the pearl of the Dolomite lakes, the lake Pragser Wildsee (1.494 m), you hike through the romantic area of the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Prags which is one of the largest protected areas of South Tyrol. In the shade of the impressive mountain massif Seekofel you will reach the high alpine pasture Fojedöra. Stop and enjoy the homemade bread and the tasty alpine cheese. Through the lonely high valley you hike past the lake Hochalpensee and finally reach the highest point. Far down in the valley you can already see the villages of the Gadertal.

Day 3

ascent approx. 1.150 m, descent approx. 950 m / approx. 5.5 - 6.5 hours

The cable car Piz de Plaies takes you from San Vigilo to the starting point. The path leads through light woodland and meadows to Piz de Corn. The mountain Peitlerkofel is enthroned on the opposite side. You hike on to the saddle Ritjoch and cross the mountaineering village of La Val. The mighty flanks of the mountain Heiligkreuzkofel are always in view. At the foot of the peaks Neuner and Zehnerspitze you reach the shelter Heiligkreuz. After a short descent you take the cable car to Badia.

Day 4

ascent approx. 325 m, descent approx. 550 m / approx. 3.5 - 4.5 hours

The cable car takes you back up to the pretty alpine huts above Badia/Abtei. The view invites you to linger: the peaks of Sella, Puezgruppe, Peitlerkofel and Kreuzkofel seem close enough to touch. Through thinning larch and fir forests you hike in the direction of St. Cassiano. On the way you will cross so-called „Viles“, as the original settlements of the Gadertal are called.

Day 5

ascent approx. 1.050 m, descent approx. 625 m / approx. 5-6 hours

From the hotel you start today‘s hiking trip. At first, the path continues comfortably along the valley floor to the Capanna Alpina. In the shade of the majestic peaks of Fanes and Conturines, follow the signs to the Scottoni refuge. From here the path goes through a rocky gorge that leads to one of the pearls of Alta Badia/Abtei: Lake Lagazuoi. It is a small, crystal-clear mountain lake at the foot of the Scottoni peak, whose waters reflect the bizarre peaks of the Fanes Dolomites. You hike along the Dolomite High Trail to the saddle of mountain massiv Lagazuoi. If you wish, you can follow the serpentine road to the refuge or summit. The descent leads via forcella Travenanzes to the passo Falzarego. It is possible to take the cable car directly from the summit to the pass (included in the price).

Day 6

ascent approx. 450 m, descent approx. 1.275 m / approx. 5-6 hours

Below the mighty peaks of the Tofane you hike on the Dolomites high-level trail no. 1. Far below in the valley floor lies the picturesque village of Cortina d‘Ampezzo. The venue of the 2026 Winter Olympics is surrounded by Dolomite peaks. The view of Monte Cristallo, Faloria, Sorapis, Croda dal Lago compensates for your efforts and forms a wonderful end to your hike. A shuttle takes you back to Hochpustertal.
