This mountain range is one of the most iconic and recognizable in the Dolomites. Tre Cime di Lavaredo literally means The Three Peaks of Lavaredo, given its massive sandstone monoliths reaching almost 10,000 ft.

The best way to explore this breathtaking sight is to hike the Tre Cime Loop which starts at Rifugio Auronzo car park and can be done in both directions. We recommend going counter-clockwise, keeping the towers to your left – this way you will get slightly better scenery.

The hike itself takes almost 4 hours, but we recommend taking your time and stopping mid-hike for coffee at Rifugio A. Locatelli or for lunch at a scenic Malga Langalm hut.
