Long distances and long season in a hiking holiday on the Seiser Alm
Conquer the dolomites on your own
Although the Seiser Alm is the largest mountain plateau in Europe, the season is unusually long for a walking holiday on the Seiser Alm. The unique climate, mixing the Mediterranean influence with an alpine climate, allow the hiking from March to November. On the 450 kilometers of well-marked hiking trails, there are also always new ways, to explore on foot the beauty of the Dolomites. The difficulty of the hiking trails vary from easy and relatively flat to challenging climbing routes, which should be better done only with an experienced guide.
Short hikes of a few hours are possible as well as day trips or multi-day treks that lead to the surrounding peaks. The biggest advantage of the hiking holiday on the Seiser Alm is the opportunity to conquer the UNESCO Dolomites on a very personal way. Whether slowly taking long walks through green meadows and by apple trees, from hut to hut or on a pre-established, multi-day hike - you alone decide what you watch and when. In any case a break in one of the mountain huts is recommended: The regional specialties offered there round off the trek perfectly.
