As a hiker, what more could you want than the rugged Dolomite peaks and Caribbean-blue mountain lakes in sunny Italy? Dreams are made to come true.

For many hikers, the Dolomites are at the top of their bucket list. In this Collection, I introduce you to how I made this dream come true for myself. For three weeks, I hiked through this unmistakable mountain world with only a backpack. I slept in huts, climbed panoramic peaks, reached my physical limits and navigated my hiking dog, Lotte, up climbs countless times. In total, we crossed seven mountain ranges: Catinaccio, Sassolungo, Sella, Puez Plateau, Civetta, Bocche Ridge and Latemar.

It was definitely an unforgettable adventure. In this Collection, I present this extra-large Dolomites Tour for you. Even if you are just looking for ideas for day trips in the Dolomites, you will find them here.

    I know it's outrageous that I'm back in the mountains again. But I can't help it 😇. Especially not on this tour. But which mountain lover can do that when the Dolomites are calling? Except for a longitudinal crossing in 2019, I don't know the “pale mountains” that well. I mostly recognize the individual

    We wanted to take it easy today. We did too, but we didn't have to accept any compromises when it came to the spectacle. With our second tour, we left the rose garden in the direction of the Langkofel group. But not without a fine ascent to the Grasleitenpasshütte, which nestles impressively against

    In this weather it would have been a shame not to climb a mountain. The selection of the delightful, hikeable mountains here in the Dolomites is rather limited. All the better that the high Plattkofel is one of them and is also right on the way.

    Today I don't have that many words for you, because the ascent to the Rifugio Boé made me feel good. With heavy legs, in which the many vertical meters from the previous day stuck, 1,450 vertical meters was anything but a walk this time. But I had found a very quiet route with hardly any other hikers

    If you can do a 3000 meter, you have to take it with you, right? I climbed Piz Boé, the highest in the Sella group, before breakfast. The view wasn't great, nor was the subsequent downpour, but I was up.

    After breakfast we went down to Passo Gardena in the sunshine. But the easy route over the Mittagstal was closed, so we had to deal with a lot of insurance with Lotte 🐕 to the Pisciadihütte. The simple via ferrata down from the hut was the logical consequence. A real challenge for us too. But the dog

    Today we only had one goal: to get back to the valley without a thunderstorm. Not that easy, because the weather today was very unstable. But we were very lucky. Early in the morning we made good progress on the Puez Plain on a wonderful path that meandered through the rocks. The play of clouds was phenomenal

    Actually we wanted to do a two-day loop through the Fanes group, but our short-term break yesterday required rescheduling. Nevertheless, the decision was spot on, because the paws of the hiking dog Lotte made a really good impression today. And for women it was a sentimental hike, because it made sense

    The Cinque Torri have been on my mountain list for a long time - today it was finally time, even if I had imagined better and better weather conditions in my imagination. But what the heck, we still decided on the longer route today. But already at the start we got weak: The less attractive ascent route

    On our regular day off, with the best hiking weather, not much kept us in the Rifugio. It was too tempting to take a look at the mountains that we hiked through yesterday but didn't see. Just a short walk away is an inconspicuous, but fine, panoramic mountain: Monte Crot. From the point just over 2,000

    Wow the Civetta is beautiful! But also pretty exhausting if you want to cross it in a day's march. We started extra early, around half past six, with the best hiking weather. That even lasted to the end, even if it fogged up every now and then. The paths were demanding from the start and led us meter

    With pretty heavy legs we went down another 1,200 meters into the valley today. We have left the Civetta behind us - somehow a shame. Because yesterday and today I found the lonely side of the Dolomites here. Here you hardly meet anyone in front of the magnificent mountain backdrop. Our descent led us

    The weather service forecast rain and thunderstorms for the whole day. And because we still have some difficult tours ahead of our chests and our tolerance threshold for rain is getting lower and lower, we decided today for a leisurely tour. At first it led us through a ski area in a less impressive

    Hardly anyone knows the Bocchekamm in the Dolomites - reason enough to take a closer look at it. In fact, I've already crossed the ridge once, on the Sentiero della Pace. Since this crosses the Dolomites and we run a long loop, it is logical that we meet the long-distance hiking trail again in the south

    To be honest, I just can't decide whether it was the most terrible or the most beautiful tour of this trek today. In the mild light of the rising sun we started the further ridge hike, the Pala group next to us dipped in delicate orange on the left, the rose garden on the right was already lit by the

    Today I completed the extra-large Dolomites circuit (as I named our tour) with a very fine tour. However, I was traveling alone because we decided yesterday that Lotte had better take a day off. In retrospect, the decision was spot on, because this Latemar crossing would have really demanded everything
