An awesome hike in epic surrondings

Hiking the Tre Cime circuit is one of the best day hikes in the Dolomites. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and the hike is relatively easy for people with less hiking experience. Definitely something you should add to your Dolomites itinerary. I definitely recommend driving up the toll road and starting the loop at Rifugio Auronzo as early as possible to enjoy a full day in this amazing location. Or if your itinerary allows, stay overnight in one of the mountain huts to watch the amazing sunset and sunrise from up here (wild camping isn't allowed in the Dolomites so don't risk setting up tents up here if you don't want a hefty fine).

Hike the full circuit for the best experience

Lago di Braies is a Dolomites must-see. To really experience this beautiful spot, I highly recommend hiking the full circuit around the lake. Most of the crowds stick to the shoreline closest to the hotel and boathouse, so if you want to have a more intimate adventure, take the trail that loops around the lake. This easy hiking trail takes around 1 hour, although you'll probably find it'll take you longer as you'll almost certainly want to stop every few meters to take pictures.

A Must-Do Activity in the Dolomites

Despite the huge crowds, you still can't come to the Dolomites and not visit Lago di Braies. Make sure to arrive early to avoid the largest crowds. Taking out a boat on the lake is a great way to get away from other people and enjoy floating around on the lake surrounded by towering mountains all around you.

A Must-See In Innsbruck

No matter how short your stay is in Innsbruck, a trip up the Nordkette must be on the itinerary. From the very top station, the Hafelekar, you can hike up to the summit cross where you'll be rewarded with incredible views across the Inn valley on one side and the Karwendal National Park on the other. Disembark the lift at the Seegrube and explore the greener pastures where you'll often find mountain sheep and goats grazing in the summer. You can also get something to eat and drink at the restaurant there.

Definitely one of the best hikes

I LOVED this hike but a little disappointed to find it now costs 200DKK per person (since April 2019) to hike this trail.

Beautiful location.

Bled is such a beautiful spot. It's definitely worth getting up early before all the crowds are up and about.
