Route description

This stage has two possible routes, both of which take you through the heart of the mountains. The first trail is not for the feint hearted. It is hard trek and it is long, There are no obvious stopping off points, and so you need to be absolutely certain of your timing and be in excellent shape. So, please, carefully assess your capacity and your options as objectively as possible. The trail takes you through the part of the Carnic Alps that straddles Friuli and the Veneto. In particular you will pass through the Gruppo dei Brentoni and Terze mountains, which surround the Sappada basin to the south.
