Présentation de l'éditeur

A fully-updated second edition of a popular guide to short walks, suitable for summer and winter walking, in the Dolomite mountains of northeastern Italy, just across the border from Austria and easily reached from Verona, Treviso, Venice and Innsbruck airports. The guide describes 50 walks, graded from easy to strenuous, and varying in length from 3 mile strolls to full-day expeditions. The Dolomites are blessed with vast forests, high-altitude rocky landscapes and seas of beautiful wildflowers and the range is now a designated Unesco World Heritage Site encompassing a national park - Parco Nazionale Dolomiti Bellunesi - and several other protected areas. Highlights include the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the Civetta, the Piz Boe circuit on the Sella massif and the Sentiero delle Odle. This guide offers something for every walking ability and preference, and includes all the background and planning information you need to plan a trip, including an Italian-German-English glossary and a list of accommodation providers and websites and details of all rifugios on or near the routes.

Hiking Guides for that area are unfortunately all in Italian or German. Speaking none of those languages, I chose to use this one. A good choice indeed. All walks (Ten, to be accurate) I selected from this guide were splendid (but to be honnest, the area is just splendid) but also are accurately described in terms of length, difficulty and interest.

A no brainer for those who do not speak the local languages, and maybe even for those who do !

I wanted easy 1/2 day hikes, but I was really disappointed.
Nothing really short, nothing really easy except the very well known ones.
Hard to read in the Kindle version, no table for length/duration/difficulty.

Well I do not recommend at all... And expensive!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good overview of available hikes in the Dolomites 5 novembre 2007
Par Peter L. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was pleased to find this book about shorter walks in the Dolomites, written in eloquent English. This is a wonderful area of German and Ladino-speaking Italy with many hiking options. I was completely unfamiliar with what we might encounter and this book gave ideas on where to go and what to do. There are many lifts and gondolas that run during the late spring, summer, and fall to take hikers from the main road to higher elevations to start hiking. There is nothing like this in the US so it was difficult to envision. The author gives an overview of the area and then describes each numbered hike (location found on large scale map) in exquisite detail, including directions to the trailheads, mileage, elevation gain (in meters), and walking time. There are beautiful color photos and small-scale maps of each hike. I emailed the author prior to our trip and she answered immediately with suggestions on which hikes to do given the location of our lodging.

We had no idea how long it would take to drive even a short distance on the map. As it turned out, we stayed within a very small area as the roads are narrow and winding and we wanted to spend more time hiking and less time driving (although the scenery was spectacular!). We also had no idea how much the various lifts cost. It depended on the type of lift, location, and whether going one-way or round trip, but the ones we went on ranged from about 8-15 Euros per person. That can add up. Another thing we learned the hard way is that lifts close in the late afternoon and might be closed mid-day while hikers are at elevation and not yet ready to go down. You can always sit at the upper station, which likely has a cafe, and enjoy the scenery if they are not yet open for the descent. Be sure to check the closing time and make sure you beat it or it might be a painful, steep trip down.

The rifugios, or huts, are a delight. Again, coming from the US we had no idea what they would be like. They are much bigger and have more services than expected. You can get some great food and hot and cold drinks. They have restrooms which they prefer you to use rather than the countryside. We would have enjoyed spending nights at them had we known how to go about doing this. We look forward to returning!

Gillian Price has done an excellent job at putting together a rather comprehensive book of day hikes in the Dolomites. Note that there are many hikes available that are not mentioned. She picked a smattering of the best, and there is great variety.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good primer... 20 mai 2014
Par WHL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Gillian Price does a great job with her Cicerone Guides, and this book is no exception. I would like to have seen better "over view" maps and some better practical information on how to access trail heads... transport, hotels, etc. I'd also like a more detailed description in ALL Cicerone Guides as to fitness requirements. The general theme is that if you're fit you can hike these trails. Unfortunately, that is not true. Many trails require a good bit of pre-training and conditioning. I say this as a general fault in all the Cicerone Guides, not just Gillian's. Very useful book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 shorter walks in the dolomites 12 novembre 2010
Par Beate Ely - Publié sur Amazon.com

very detailed information, great for planning. Evenly spaced throughout the Dolomites, short walks up to 12 miles. Love the altitude difference info since my knees have to be able to handle long and steep descends.

Some others have commented on the weaknesses regarding maps, trail heads, transportation, etc. (see Klemmaniac, WHL, et al) and I agree with them The actual trails tend to be numbered and signed often with distances and estimated walking times. It would be helpful to key the book to maps and actual signage. Would also be helpful to discuss getting around from one area to another, some tips on best huts to eat and/or sleep, fitness/experience level, etc. This seem to be one of the few, and the best book available in English. There were some comprehensive guides at the local stores in German---wish we had one of those in English! Buy local maps as recommended! All of this said, the Dolomites are a fabulous area with great hiking that is well organized for busses, lofts, trails food, shelter, and all sorts of lodging in the villages. The views are breathtaking and ever changing. The trails can be short, long, easy and difficult---planning is important. Have fun! (We are going back for more)

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Dangerously inaccurate. 23 juin 2014
Par Grace Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
My husband and I have moderate hiking experience in mountains. We take extra water and account for extra time to complete the hike. Prior to leaving we verified the map with the local information office. She confirmed the map but did not review the description. She warned us that this would be a really challenging hike. We trusted the book instead of her. We were wrong. We took hike 12 in this book. The distance was accurate but the hike description and challenge level was completely inaccurate. The hike reflects a picture of someone strolling past the ruins of Refugio Popena. We never saw the ruins or this part of the path. The hike actually followed a riverbed full of loose rocks which was more dangerous and challenging than walking though sand. I fell multiple times. The path was well marked but since we were not seeing the described markers, we were terrified that we were on the wrong path, we had no idea where we were going to end up or when. It was moments of unknown and we were making plans for being the rescued hikers on the 6:00 news. Because of the loose rocks we knew that it would be very dangerous to turn around and hike against the suggested route. The hike ended exactly where the map said it would, but we never saw anything in the description. I literally cried when we found the road. The road is a narrow mountain road that is incredibly busy. We had to step off the road for every car. The description never mentioned that. I hate walking on busy roads. I would have never picked this hike if the description was accurate. The hike took us 5.5 hours rather than 3 hours as described. It was a horrible experience.
