Cortina offers more than 400 kilometers of signposted footpaths and hiking trails through meadows and forests, mountain lodges and Alpine lakes. There are trails of all difficulties and lengths, making Cortina an ideal destination for both well-trained hikers and for those who want to enjoy peaceful walks admiring breathtaking views.
Multi-day treks like the Alta Via 1 and the Cortina Dolomiti Ultra Trekking allow for a full immersion in the Dolomites, hiking for several hours every day and sleeping in traditional mountain lodges. Another way to explore the nature of Cortina is to hike in the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites, rich in different habitats and landscapes and with many species of wild animals and plants.
In Cortina, wonderful panoramas go hand in hand with pleasures of the palate: a hike in the Ampezzo Valley is not complete without a visit to one of the many mountain lodges or Alpine farms, for a hearty lunch or a refreshing drink.
Many lifts are open in the summer season, and the Hiking Pass gives access to all of Cortina’s cable cars and chairlifts, as well as to city buses by means of a single card.
