The Dolomites are one of the most fascinating geological architectures in the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Dolomites impress hikers with their beauty and power. Vertical cliffs of dolostone, sublime and colorful landscapes and breathtaking views have for long attracted hikers. Most hikers choose self guided hiking tours to explore the Dolomites, although

In a self guided tour, you travel and hike in total freedom and at your own pace, without guides or groups, on routes designed regularly inspected by the MONT Trekking guides and experts. Your tour is in your hands, and you can choose your own company to explore the Dolomites. We offer self guided tours of varying length and difficulty to meet expectations of virtually all hikers, from families travelling with children to groups of friends. Solo hikers are quite common in the Dolomites as well, and they prioritize self guided hikes to feel the solitude and be totally immersed in nature.

Hiking in the Dolomites without a guide is indeed easy for those who already have trekking experience in the mountains. Our self guided itineraries follow marked and well-maintained trails. Directions signs are found at all crossings and intersections. They are identified by color-codes: they are red and white in the Dolomites with or without the trail number. Their frequency depends on the characteristic of the terrain. Normally, more markers are used at low altitude where the landscape is characterized by alpine pastures and above 2500-2700 meters because the may be no trodden trail in rocky terrains. Lower density of markers is typical for trails in forests where there is just one trodden and well-visible trail. Our Dolomites self guided hiking tours bypass via ferrata, glaciers and any paths which require technical experience, but the itineraries can be tailored based on your preferences.

MONT Trekking provides self guided hikers in the Dolomites with specialized 1:25000 hiking maps and electronic maps for Android or Apple devices.

Itineraries for self guided tours are defined in advance by local MONT Trekking experts, and nothing is left to the chance. Self-guided hikers are provided with a step-by-step hiking schedule for each day of the trek.
