Delicious Slow Trekking

©Paolo Tassi

A 24-hour walk through the area Delicious Cortina, located between the passes Giau and Falzarego,  accompanied by Cortina’s mountain guides in collaboration with the Ampezzo Dolomites Nature Park, under a starry sky, when the only enchanting murmur is the sound of the forest…  reach high altitudes on the most beautiful trails of the Dolomites...  stop off in the refuges of the Delicious Trail Dolomiti, where the guests are also welcome at unusual times.... A very special and delicious hike in the most stunning mountain groups of Cortina.

The mountain guides of Cortina d'Ampezzo have organized a Slow Trekking which is to be understood as a path of self-reflection, as a way of sensual contemplation of creation from sunset to dawn and further on until the evening of the following day, walking through the most beautiful mountains.

On Mount Lagazuoi a forest ranger of the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites will join and accompany the group up to Rifugio Dibona, provide information about the nature and all the magic of the Dolomites.

A trekking tour in full safety, treated calmly with no timetable and with the accompaniment of the greatest experts in this area: the mountain guides of Cortina d'Ampezzo.

The trail winds through the area of the trail running event Delicious Trail Dolomiti - which this year will take place on 21st September for the 4th time - and includes all refuges involved in the trail running event Delicious Trail Dolomiti: a great sporting event brought about with the aim of enhancing the historical, natural, mountaineering and gastronomic heritage of Cortina d'Ampezzo.

The Delicious Slow Trekking is a foretaste of the Delicious Trail Dolomiti. Since part of the route will be covered by night under the stars, obviously the atmosphere is quite different. However, the time doesn’t change in no way the traditional, warm hospitality that made famous the refuges of the area Delicious Cortina, organizers of both events.

Where expected, the participants can make a stop and enjoy snacks, breakfasts and lunches while admiring the sky and the wonders of creation from dawn to dusk.

Along the route, participants will find refreshment also during the night.
