A Walk in the Dolomites


On Thursday the 13th July we arrived at the Post Hotel in San Candido (or Innichen as it is known to the German speakers of the Alto Adige region of Northern Italy). We had come to walk through the Dolomites to Cortina d'Ampezzo on a holiday organised by On Foot Holidays. You can find the details of our particular route HERE.

Chris and I had got to San Candido by rail as had the other couple (B and P), although by different routes. We travelled from London to Munich in one day via Brussels and Frankfurt. After a stay in Munich we travelled to San Candido via Innsbruck (where B and P joined our train) and Fortezza where we caught the local train to our destination. B and P travelled to Zurich via Paris, stayed overnight and continued to Innsbruck the next day. Loco2 arranged our tickets, Railbookers did the same for B and P.

One of the good things about On Foot Holidays is that they send you the routes you will walk as maps and as GPS files. The ones they sent us are shown on the map below.



  1. A circular walk to the east of San Candido.
  2. A walk from San Candido to the Drei Schuster Hutte (Rifugio Tre Scarperi in Italian).
  3. Walk from the Rifugio to Misurina.
  4. A bus journey to Les Tre Cime, a walk round them, then back to Misurina.
  5. A walk to the Rifugio Citta di Carpi and back.
  6. And finally, a taxi to the Val d'Ansiei and then walk to Cortina.


It will not take you long to work out that I take photographs! Many are used in the following pages, but that is only a small sample of the 500 or so that I actually took. All the ones that are fit to be seen are to be found HERE. Feel free to browse through them.
