Hiking the Dolomites – Home Base Cortina, Italy

July 9, 2015

Dolomites - Ortisei-77

The drive from Ortisei to Cortina is an easy 1.5 hours along winding scenic roads and definitely worth the hassle of moving your home base if you are planning an extended stay in the Dolomites.

Cortina was not as easy as Ortisei for setting up our hiking routine. We had to buy a hiking map. The Tobacco 03 seems to be the most useful, especially if you are using the Cicerone hiking guide. Transportation by bus is much less frequent and the tourist office encouraged us to use our car to reach the trailheads. Hiking advice from the tourist office in general was much less thoughtful than from our beloved Peter in Ortisei, we therefore relied on the Cicerone Guide, Shorter Walks in the Dolomites rather than locals.
