Trek of Legends: Hiking in Val di Fassa
Each year, hoards of tourists from around the world pour into Italy’s most frequented stops: Rome, Venice, Florence, and the like. But while Europe’s jet set has long been enamored by the Dolomite Mountains, located in northeastern Italy, the adventure capital is still surprisingly under-the-radar for many Americans. Val Di Fassa is an awe-inspiring valley framed by the steep walls, jagged peaks, and towering spires of the surrounding Dolomite Mountains. The circular Trek of Legends route winds through this fabled land for more than 120 miles, serving panoramic views around every twist and turn. Dolomite Mountains is an Italian-based adventure travel company that specializes in the region and offers multiple packages, like this eight-day excursion. With its combination of scenic trails, alpine grasslands, and charming mountain passageways, it’s easy to understand why the Dolomites have inspired so many of the long-lasting legends and fairytales of the area’s ancient Ladin peoples.
