The Dolomites of northeastern Italy are blessed with vast forests, high-altitude rocky landscapes and seas of beautiful wildflowers, making them ideal for walking in summer.

Shorter Walks in the Dolomites by Gillian Price has something for everyone here, from high mountain walks with strenuous climbs for experienced walkers, to leisurely family strolls through the valleys. Each walk described in this guidebook can be completed in a single day.

The extensive network of trains and buses across the Dolomites is refreshingly inexpensive, easy to use and unfailingly reliable. All but two of the 50 walks start and finish at a point accessible by local transport.

Visit the Dolomites between June and October for walking, unless you’re equipped with showshoes or skis. From early summer many low-altitude walks are feasible, but it’s worth waiting until July for high-altitude routes to be free of late-lying snow.
