The AV1 is the premier route in the Dolomites. It is the perfect way to explore the range's exquisite beauty and its fascinating WW1 history. The AV1 is a linear route between Lago di Braies in the north and Belluno in the south. On the journey, you cross incredible high mountain passes enabling passage from magnificent valley to magnificent valley. And there are exquisite alpine plateaus, wonderful grassy pastures and carpets of wild flowers, the like of which you will never have seen before.
You will live and breathe these scenic delights, night and day, because you need never leave the mountains. Unlike some alpine treks, the AV1 never enters villages or hamlets: fabulous accommodation is available in remote mountain huts cleverly spaced out along the route. Places with views that most people dream of but few will ever see. Places that you will never forget. Places that will leave you with remarkable memories. This is without a doubt a trek that should be on your bucket list.
With the right preparation, planning and approach the AV1 is perfectly manageable for most people of reasonable fitness. Yes it is a challenge but it is an achievable one. And that is where this guide comes in Most of what you need to know to prepare for the AV1 is here within these pages. And the entire route is described in detail to guide you on the trek itself. Furthermore, unlike other books, this one contains Real Maps: for each stage, there is a 1:25,000 scale map.
