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!
Granite trails indeed, because the Alta Via del Granito plainly means Granite High Route. This is a circular traverse of the unique granite of the Cima d'Asta - Cime di Rava group in the Lagorai chain. Popular with Italians, this well-kept secret follows a network of ancient paths and former military roads, dating back to the First World War, connecting the only two refuges in the group: the hospitable Rifugios Conseria and Caldenave.
