The Alta Via del Granito, just not any Alta Via. It's the Italian name for High Trail and in Northern Italy and the Dolomites you can find a lot of them. You may have heard or you even may have hiked Bookatrekking.com bestsellers Alta Via 1 and Alta Via 2. You can't get more Dolomites than on those two phenomenal treks. Although geographically part of the Dolomites, the Alta Via del Granito isn't entirely dolomite. Yep, it's a bit more special than that. Why? Lace up your hiking boots, read our blog post, the tips from Ilse, and go discover the granite trails of the Lagorai!

Rifugio Caldenave is located in a happy and pleasant position on a hillock overlooking the two plains where domestic and wild animals live in harmony. The building was converted from an old, well-restored malga. It has 22 beds in five rooms with communal facilities. The restaurant offers simple, traditional dishes prepared with genuine, locally sourced ingredients. Guido, the manager, will introduce you to the many secrets of the place.
Rifugio Cima d'Asta - O. Brentari
Rifugio Brentari is a comfortable presence just a few minutes from the south wall studded with towers, favourably exposed to the sun. On the south bastion of Cima d'Asta there are some thirty routes that have been opened since 1952. In recent years, the love and passion of the local mountain guides and the mountain hut managers who have taken turns running the hut have increased and revived mountaineering and sporting interest in this area.

What and Where Is The Alta Via del Granito?
The trek starts and ends at Malga Sorgazza, locally a well-known restaurant at a dead-end road about an hour's drive from the town of Trento. Trento lies in between Bolzano, known for the Alta Via 2 and access point to the peaks of that side of the Dolomites, and Verona, close to Lago di Garda. Malga Sargazzo is also only a 2 hours drive from Venice, which is much shorter than some hikes in the northern Dolomites. This allows you to combine the mountains with the sea and hiking with sightseeing. Surf and turf the Italian Way!
The Corona pandemic has had its grip on us, and mountain huts in the Alpine region have had to take several preventive measures over the past two years. In the meantime, the first relaxations in the Alps are noticeable, yet it is definitely still a factor to take into account. Some Covid restrictions that are worth mentioning:
- Don't go to the huts if you have symptoms!
- Not all mountain huts are allowed to operate at full capacity yet, so make sure you book your stay in advance.
- To be on the safe side, always take a mouth mask with you.
- In some mountain huts it is still compulsory to bring your own sleeping bag, in others a sheet bag and pillowcase are sufficient. Your personal travel guide will tell you which rules apply to your route.
- Bring your own towel
