Trekking & Running

Summer holidays in the mountains...

Trekking for everyone

The Hotel Des Alpes, a 3-star hotel in Cortina d’Ampezzo, is located in a particularly favorable position for trekking enthusiasts and for those who love low-altitude walks.

We are in the area of the Ampezzo Dolomites Natural Park which offers a variety of paths suitable for everyone, to discover the most beautiful panoramas, flora, fauna and legends that will fascinate even the littlest ones.

In Cortina there are over 400 kilometers of paths for walking in the mountains. They are all signposted and can be explored independently, with the help of a map, or accompanied by a professional mountain guide.

They range from easy walks, even at low altitude, to more challenging itineraries, always immersed in the suggestive and unique views of the Dolomites.

Many ski lifts – cable cars and chair lifts – are also open in the summer season to allow hikers to comfortably reach the starting points of the trekking itineraries.

By purchasing the Hiking Pass it is possible to access all the Cortina facilities with a single card and at advantageous conditions.

The valley of Cortina d’Ampezzo is a natural paradise for enthusiasts of trail running with more or less challenging routes, suitable for everyone, for running on foot in an unparalleled natural context, in the setting of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Suggested itineraries

At Lake Federa, at the foot of the Croda da Lago and Becco di Mezzodì, a paradise for excursions that can be reached from different starting points.

Excursion to Lake Sorapis, famous for the turquoise color of its waters and the magical atmosphere that surrounds it. It’s worth getting there, but you need to keep in mind that along the route there are short exposed sections equipped with wire ropes.
