Cortina Epic Week Part 1: Introduction

We just came back from an epic week in Cortina d'Ampezzo in the Dolomites. We did daily excursions involving hiking, Via Ferratas, rockclimbing and trailrunning. I'll produce shortly a series of blog posts with photos as follows:

  • Part 2: Ra Bujela
  • Part 3: Lagazuoi
  • Part 4: Cascate di Fanes
  • Part 5: 5 Torri
  • Part 6: Torre di Toblin
  • Part 7: Lago di Sorapis.

I must say that this trip exceeded our expectations. We were very happy with the weather as well as the professional services of Guide Dolomiti.

"Each mountain in the Dolomites is like a piece of art", Reinhold Messner said. "They are not the highest, but they are certainly the most beautiful mountains around the world."

Le Corbusier regarded the Dolomites as "the most beautiful natural architecture worldwide." We agree. Below is our 30-second Gopro-video, which neatly summarizes the week.
