The Dolorama path, which can be traveled in 4 days, develops along the beautiful landscapes of the Isarco valley, starting from the Alpe di Rodengo / Luson, around the Plose, up to Laion. Beautiful views of the most fascinating Dolomite peaks stand out in front of you: from the imposing Sass di Putia to the magnificent Odle of the Val di Funes up to the majestic Sassolungo, Sasso Piatto and Sciliar.

The Dolorama trail runs almost entirely on forest roads and marked trails with a single crossing of a paved road. Along the way the prehistoric settlement of Astmoos on the Alpe di Luson and the geological stratifications at the Passo delle Erbe are worth a stop.

The four-day itinerary can also be tackled in stages: there are numerous points, where to start or shorten the route. Moreover, the departure and arrival points are easily reachable by public transport.
