    Been on the trek for 10 days now what a walk! So easy, join a mountain club and get bed for $25 or dbb for $65 per night. Absolutely stunning, exciting and dramatic region ... gotta get back for some ski touring etc impressed with area around san Pellegrino ... more to come if I get around to it.

    Dolomites can be quite tiring after 8 days, if you only weight 22 kg, but it is a great area. Many years ago with my 8 years daughter.
    In winter it can look like this: (sorry wrong order)

    Tell me that first shot isn't out from Passo Rolle?

    Skyline looks very familiar, think I was riding along that ridge a few months ago? What a place.

    Not sure need will check. meanwhile here’s another one from near Rosetta Refugio which is open all year . everyday of the walk is gobsmacking and am surprised at how few are around outside of weekends this has to be as boodwah said one of ‘the’ mountain areas anywhere.

    On the 9th day we crashed our camera - so no more pictures on the Dolomite track. :(

    If you like tracking have a look at north Scandinavia - more outback than mountains.

    Your stay at places like this or tent - and this is in summer July!

    Her you can finde all routs and huts in Norway from far south to north of the polar circle.

    https://www.ut.no/

    Not cheap to stay in the Huts. There are 3 types fuld served (like in the aples, selv served (some food is in the hut) and without service - have to bring your own food.

    In Sweden it is part of the International Youth Hostel system, cheaper than Norway. Some info here:

    https://www.swedishtouristassociation.com/mountain-hiking/


    Som place along the atlantic ocean the hiking can get very hard as you go very much up and down, but it is very beautiful area.

    I am not going to talk about the weather - rain and snow is to be expected in summer.

    One has to be much more careful in the north as communication facilities are far apart.

    Of course you can crisscross the border on your hike as well, and always have self -rescue in mind.

    Edit: I almost forgot - you have to love moskitos lot to go the northern parts.

    Hiking (and skiing) together with your child(ren) is really creating bounds between your - that my daughter should stay stay 2 years in Japan was not the plan - but luckily she finally starts her education now.

    Sorry to have kidnapped your Dolomite thread - I will stop now.:whistle:

    Last tip: When hiking with small children finde a place to go up by lift- and stay high afterwards.

    I was planning on walking/hiking in the Dolomiten Sep next year but have dropped the idea. Couldn't make it fit unfortunately. So will have to watch this thread in lieu.

    Here you are - westside of Catinaccio (Rosengarten)

    By lift you can get up from the west side here and hike al the way to Sella with children.
    My daughter was always in the lead - without backpack.




    http://www.rifugioantermoia.com/ is a nice place, seems to have a new manager.

    Gorgeous. We've been skiing there but summer is on our list.
