Dolomites UNESCO Geotrail

A hiking trail to discover the fossil archipelago of the World Heritage Site

The Dolomites were selected in 2009 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site mainly on account of their unique geological history. From this arose the idea of designing a trekking route through the Dolomites that would present this spectacular history to walkers.

The Geotrail crosses Dolomites of South Tyrol in ten days, traversing some of the most beautiful and geologically interesting mountain ranges in the region. There are breathtaking views to be had along a route that features plenty of opposites, while the walking itself is a pleasure along the well-marked, well-maintained paths.

The Geotrail is thus a combination of long-distance footpath and educational trail. The individual stages of this trail are also possible as day tours; you can almost always use public transport to get back to your starting point or to return from the day’s destination. The main challenge is nevertheless to attempt the Geotrail in ten days, taking the time to explore a unique world full of secrets and for a while escaping the hustle and bustle of our (over-)organised everyday world.

Eine grandiose Tour durch die "bleichen Berge". Die Eindrücke auf jeder einzelnen Etappe waren überwältigend. Wir hatten aber auch absolutes Glück mit dem Wetter. Die Weg-Sperrungen auf der 2. (Latemar Höhenweg) und 4. Etappe (Abstieg nach St. Ulrich) konnten problemlos umgeplant und umgangen werden. Können den Dolomites UNESCO Geotrail nur jedem Weitwanderer wärmstens empfehlen.
