Hello everyone
As the title implies, this post refers to a path that includes the Dolomites Alta via 6

.I will refer this track as part of the longer path, and as an independent route for those who want to do just that


Europe high Altitude Trail 6 is relatively a long trail crosses the Alps and Dolomites from Austria to Italy. The trail starts in the province of Carinthia (Karnten) Austria and ends in the town of Vittorio-Veneto (Vittorio-Veneto) Italy. The total length is approximately 20 days

:(The trail crosses several mountain ranges (in order from North to South
Glockner group
Schober group
Lienzer Dolomite
Alps Karnische
Spalti di Toro
Monte Cavallo

It has several large parks, nature reserves and natural areas to wildlife 

:The path can be divided into three parts, each stage has special characteristics

.First stage: gloknerhaus (Glocknerhaus) to Lienz, via Park Hohe Tauern, about five days
 Stage two: Lienz to Italian border -  ski town Sappada. This phase takes 3 days
(Third stage: Dolomites High Altitude Trail 6-Dolomite AV6 -Spada to Vitorio Veneto (11 days

Those who are interested in the Alta via 6 can skip and go straight to the section describing AV6

The first part, the Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria (3500 +), with passes in the area of 2700-3000 m. Italian part (which is actually a Alta via 6) the passes are around 2000-2400 m

The track is not easy, and not recommended for beginners

To simplify the post, I will try to relate each part separately.

Part one-the Austrian part from baseline to the Lienz:


In this section there is a hut at the end of each day (the days in the book is based on the locations).
We don't like huts, so we were prepared with a tent and food.
About camping in the Park, checked and got a strange response like this: "in principle no, but allowed". It is not clear,,  but we didn't ask more questions.:-) Maybe because it was rlativly late in the season, maybe because we said we weren't going to settle and camp, only to a minimum night sleep.. Anyway back home we tried to mail the Park about that and the day before we left we received an answer (negative) and continued to try to find out there.
 Editor's note (2016): this is the park's site. It specificly notes no camping and no fire. For your discration


If you get no as an answer or don't want to risk it or want the tent only to later stages (AV6), you can leave the tent in Lientz -  you'll come back there anyway -  complete the section of the Park in the huts and then pick up the tent later .

Hiking season:

Hiking season is from mid-late June to early-mid September. However, of course every season mountains experience stormy weather, should be ready for anything. We started at septamber 12 and on the same day were attacked by a snow blizzard for two days. It's probably a little early, but it can happen. We recommend that you start at the end of August the Austrian section and Italian part in early September.
Standard opening season of cabins: 20 June until mid or late September. Some more detailed information in the attachment. Some huts have a winter shelter that should be open when the cabin itself is closed.

Degree of difficulty:
There are some technical sections along the route. Because of the snow blizzard that attacked us we couldn't try them ourselves so I have no firsthand information. I hope this work will remain dopen and updated by others

Language: German

Technical data
Starting point: gloknerhaus Glocknerhaus, Austria. To reach the starting point take a bus from Leinz (departs directly opposite the railway station of the town several times a day, works only in the summer, less frequent on september.) Buy a bus ticket for gloknerhaus (it's a roadside Hotel at the entrance to the Park) but you'll need to change buses twice, the driver will tell you. In addition, you have to pay a few euros on a toll road in the village name iiligenblot (replacing bus a second time) to the gloknerhaus (that too you pay the driver).

End point: basically going back to Leinz (thats not exactly how the book describes, but this is what happens in practice). Get from the last cabin (Winkler Alm) to the village and from there a bus to Leinz, or you can also go from the hut to Leinz.

 Days of walking to complete the route:
 4-5 days

Section schedules along the path:
The times found on metal plaques in the Austrian part refer to people in great shape not carrying equipment and rely completely on. Consider this if you carry weight.

The trail is mostly in the form of a rose, a red-white-red stripes primarily stones but also easy and there are signs a s3g (optimistic). The signs also appears for a number, and the circle indicates the level of difficulty of the trail: Blue = easy red = medium, black = difficult.

How to reach us:

Need to reach Lienz Lienz first. Note not to be confused with the city of Linz in Austria also just elsewhere.
Flies routes to Vienna, then to take the train. You might also reach from Ljubljana in Slovenia. We flew to Verona in Italy. From there we took a train and after a couple of exchanges reached liintz. It's not just but.

Topographic maps of the route, in order:
1. Rooms 1:50000 map No. 48 covers the entire first section described below.
Or map a number of Freytag & Berndt WK181 also 1:50000 and covers the entire area.
Who wants maps 1:25000:
1. map No. 40 Glocknergruppe of Wegmarkierung
2. map of the Schobergruppe Wegmarkierung number 41

Maps can be obtained at the intersport store (Intersport) which is directly opposite the train station from opposite how across the street. Not sure they have it all and would retroactively available in advance online.
All along the route, and some of the Italian AV6, not trusting that there will be maps that simply hasn't cabins This is the route most frequented area of much less than the AV1 or AV2.
Modiaio also has maps, you can also check there if you can't find in the store.

Gas can be purchased at the store, too, have all types.

Recommend Hotel and liintz: losberghof Gasthof Schlossberghof opened a. You can pre-order online.
Great room very comfortable 72 euros, including breakfast. A little off-center, something like 600-700 meters. But his hand pretty much only liintz writer so anyway needed to get there. All other hotels we examined were more expensive (around 100 euros per room).
There are also campsites, close to town so.


Part II-the Austrian border Austria – Italy liintz to the starting point of the Alta via 6:


This section also has a cabin at the end of each day.

Hiking season:
When f.

Technical data
It is a scene that we were going to give him up because we were missing a few days to complete each track and seems the least bit attractive, with several cases of walking and/or taxis/bus transfers.
Liintz is taking public transport to Spada to start Alta via 6 so that we don't have notes that section.
In retrospect, because a migration liintz to Spada takes quite a bit of time (train, bus, ride, bus, etc.) might have been better to keep the sequence to do this part.

Starting point: "cabin" dolomiten, Austria. To reach the starting point should take liintz bus or taxi.
End point: it's not exactly like that but for convenience called Spada, endpoint

Several days of walking to complete the route:
3 days

Section schedules along the path:
The times found on metal plaques in the Austrian part refer to people in great shape not carrying equipment and rely completely on. Consider this if you carry weight.

You should obtain liintz again before hitting the road, there's a little gas Spada balloon manicure (details on that in part III)

Topographic maps of the route:
Rooms 1:50000 map No. 47 covers the whole both described below.
Or map a number of Freytag & Berndt WK182 also 1:50000 and covers the entire area.

Part III-Alta via 6

First, a few words on the trail.
Alta via 6 also called Alta via Pacific (Alta Via Dei Silenzi) rather than just. This section is relatively less and less accessible Tawil friends the popular and bustling AV. That's the beauty of that which is the primary reason we chose him. There's more room for nature, an encounter with wildlife, and really no peace other paths. On the trail we saw more deer of various kinds than humans, and almost the whole time we were alone.
It also says we should get prepared and less logistic who to trust.
Still, most days but some cabins have 2-3 days without manned cabins but with ioukim (details below) and if oriiantim. That means you need to be prepared with food to those who rely on. Who served here with a tent, as usual:-).
Another characteristic of this path, he offered him a book and riiantim in some parts. Some of them are described in the book and some only appear on the map. We are highly recommended for more from ה"תקני.
And more than once, AV Trek take maps!
If delayed on maps, not to build on that to be in, for the same reason that fewer crowds even less supported logistics and it. Might have some map in the cabin and you may not. Write down where you can get all the maps in the simplest way.
Because a little more complicated than zalogistica bmslulim the Dolomites and other multiple options when choosing this route, try to give detailed information as possible here and in earlier times as. In this case too I think. Add the number at the end of the message, who wished to do to print it and add relevant comments where appropriate. I hope the next one for add, update and tell about other variants you might have made.

In this section there is a hut at the end of almost every day but not all day cabin manned with have.
Who anyway with a tent and food. Anyone who doesn't, should consider whether he takes with him a means of cooking for the days Inn or cabins with cold food (but how can I without coffee?)

About camping, I guess. The book of the trail can be understood that that's what we did. Everywhere (cabin) recommended not told us it was forbidden, except in one cabin, but there was no objection from sleep in a tent and referred us to a place that probably the usual place where ("but don't say I said").

Hiking season:

Hiking season is from mid-late June to mid-September. You can withdraw by the end of September that the high mountains in this area less from. However, of course every season allow mountains to experience stormy weather, should be prepared for everything we wrote this from mid-September until almost the end of the month and had good weather most of the time except for a day or two of rain.
August is recommended that at least the season off Italians, especially on the weekends, expect heavy traffic in the easy access from the road. The General warned it not to track specific AV6 mentioned is far less familiar and popular.
Another point that is important to know about September is some of the services do not work (public transport, cabins) and came across a cabin (public, Alpine Association) which was supposed to be open until the end of September, but while we were there she was at 17.9, and it opens only on weekends. On the door was a sign that referred us to their winter shelter 2 minutes away, but it was locked! Well we had a tent.
As a rule, probably the first week of September and still everything works as usual, and mid May the month most things.

Standard opening season of cabins: 20 June until mid or late September. Some more. There is detailed information in the attached file but it seems that the drivers do not maintain. Some huts have a winter shelter should be open when the cabin itself is closed.

Degree of difficulty:
There are some technical sections along the route but generally is not difficult. Almost no via privatization along the route but there are places that definitely needed to be!
We in the sections that were lighter than AV2 but they had fixed anchor. Here, to expect such luxuries.
I repeat: I think it is not suitable as a first Trek. Should come with experience and needs and the ability to manage own resourcefulness in many cases. What makes this more difficult Trek is his isolation and inability to rely on existing infrastructure. It also gives the unique allowing the beauty.

Language: German and Italian.

Technical data
Starting point: Spada (Sappada). To reach Spada has several ways, but maybe you should go to first and Calalzo Spada for several reasons:
1) seems least complicated train of Belluno or bus every few minutes. There are kllato to Spada.
2) this little town has it all: gas equipment of all types and sizes. Unlike Spada there nothing surprisingly to ski resort. Everything very small place next to the train station so that amnhalot accordingly. Don't waste time looking for things in Verona, head straight here and everything.
3) (approx.) to this point after about five days. Which means, for example as savers can leave food here and collect later.

End point: Vittorio-Veneto. From there take a bus or train to Belluno (Belluno) and where you can get anywhere.

Several days of walking to complete the route:
10-12 days depending on which variant going (even more).

Section schedules along the path:
The times found on the metal or wood plaques on some pretty accurate were Italian. And with heavy bags (including tent, food and cooking equipment). If you are carrying a few, might be quicker.

The trail is mostly in shape, red and white stripes 4 mainly on rocks and trees. But note: If you see a red stripe or red circle on wood, it's not, it's usually the wood intended for amputation, not to be confused!
The AV6 is marked by a blue triangle, with or without the numeral 6.

And a word about the variants: they are marked in the same way just like standard track and marked on maps with the triangle and the number 6 (as the normal route) and write and variante. The book also included the uriantim registered cases, excluding variant 7 not mentioned.

How to reach us:

First of all, as are versatile upstairs (which is not necessarily the company's recommendation) to Belluno and then train or bus (depart from right outside the train station in Belluno) to kllato. Where do all the organisations and take a bus to Spada.

Topographic maps of the route, in order:
All map 1:25000 of TABACCO.
1. map 1
2. map 2
3. map number 21
4. map 12
This is. In the book it says need another map but not really.

Maps available in the shop of portler network (Sportler) near the kllato train station. Way station turn right and go up the road. On the left there is a writer of SPAR and a huge store of portler. The stairs to the second floor there is a huge wall with all the maps of TABACCO. There is also gas of all types and sizes. Who need some equipment there and excellent level.
As stated, not trusting that there will be maps that simply hasn't cabins This is the route most frequented area of much less than the AV1 or AV2.
Who wants to save some weight, and plan to return to kllato (after 5 days) can buy only the 2 first maps in the beginning and the last 2 later.

Not necessarily be a Spada. When we arrived there was only one, the two bought a cabin in the case really was and the rest bought in kllato. Please note that Italy maps sold in tobacconists! I.e. stores that sell cigarettes, tobacco, smoking and AIDS. I don't know why. How many times do we buy in such shops. There is one Spada-one Spada 2-3 km up the road (we weren't).

Gas but no kllato! Spada and not other towns tested. The gas has a manicure shop Spada hobbies on main street near the Plaza. Her name over at TRE, that's all I remember. They seem to have also a mohel, who some oalia.

Lists the days and oriiantim:
Day 1:
When reaching Spada has several bus stations. Need to get in the main square of the Church. The trail passes right by the Church (outside faucets should fill water here). The path is still not marked here, down the road (South) towards the kmprovanim (there is also a sign pointing to the parking lot). Before the start of signs and markings.
Note: in the book described the first day as the day that rises North and make a loop and returns to Spada. Due to shortness of time we we gave him.
Accommodation: If you could have a few late choices Spada. One, it's in town. If you have a tent and almost no time to go, there's a great place to just a matter of minutes after the trailer, right after you cross the River on the bridge. Those who have a little more time to go, you can find a good place for a tent about an hour later and before starting the climb to La Paz. The trail goes from the left to the stream and the grass on the opposite bank, should cross the nachalon. Easy walking, in a forest or along a Creek.

Day 2:
Already here can select the track or a Variant, and a few more options. We chose a great variation to pass Passo Oberenghe to enjoy the view. Who has not had to reach the tent cabin can (horiants each) to save the hut that actually walks at the end of the day there is a walk to the hut (Fratelli Rifugio) return the same way back to the path. (So basically the second day did day 2 + 3 in the book is what I described here).
Rising to pass pass some water channels, should not carry too much water. On the map marked several channels, all water (depending on the season). Filling to make the third channel from the end before the last pass, he actually has a nice flow. The water here should suffice until the end of the climb and descent (liters a person will do).
The decline of apas (2081) simple and finally comes to rest on a dirt road continues to descend to the West. After arriving in the Valley and crossing the River, the route is different and almost can say "built" resume rise up ריפוג'יו Favreau Fabbro (private bungalow, but run by a nonprofit organization, the cabin's nice people on the street).
There is water everywhere, the tent can be found in the nearby forest but need some searching.

Day 3:
Go right a few minutes on the road to the West, and it's to the left (South) on the path (signposted but easy to miss if you've reached a road twists missed). The trail here sometimes a little unclear, but it's not bad. When reaching the Valley becomes clear on a dirt road and until 1911 m kasera d'wana (Doana Caseira), a great place for a break (tap water in front of the House). Kasera she sometimes abandoned in the mountains and sometimes operates during the summer months. The path passes a lot. Some are great and some are just or even ruins. At most have running water.
From akasera through the Stockade of cows, an observation tower on the right and go up some more and hence the path starts to descend (a long decline in the forest) to the PAS-road kinda lame (Passo della Mauria.) Turn left and when reaching the road. Everything was closed when we were here, mid-September, open only in water can be found behind the restaurant at something that looks like a workshop.
The trail continues South and falls into a wide valley with a river that looks like it used to be very serious (to fill in one of the water side streams). Cross the river and climb West Giaf shack. As mentioned above, based on the book is supposed to be open until the end of September but in mid-September was already closed and only opens in the bioock that was supposed to be open was discovered locked. Besides look pretty nice place. There is a dirt road that goes up to the cabin (i.e. There is easy access and don't even have to go), and a children's playground. Looks pretty busy summer here (= reservations who wished to stay).

Kasera d'wana:

For a few days before the ג'יאף hut:

Day 4:
From here start to be a lot of variants for the next couple of days. We chose because of constraints (didn't have to continue and we need more gas) to get in the normal way (and faster) to hopefully at least rpogy Padova map have, but was not (and not hold 21, 16 map.) We ate lunch there (recommended!) and went to town. There's a dirt road, a road that goes down to the nearest village (stopped ride fast) stating we have maps and gas but haven't found the appropriate maps and gas was just manicures. We went south to kllato (bus) and discovered that there was everything. The return was late and almost dark so we took a cab to the cabin (50 euros). Walking down takes about two hours and a half and her back to five and a half hours. Traveling is like 20 minutes to Greece.
Another option is to sleep in and kllato the next day, also has a chance to.

There is water near the cabin. Can I put a tent behind the Chapel, there is a tent.
Who has time to move, about a half-hour after Padova hut has very small bungalow and unmanned, no water, there are places to camp area. Who will continue a little longer (an hour from Padua) before splitting paths (standard or variant 4) 2 small streams and larger. There are places for tent near the stream first.

As mentioned above there are several route options you can choose from on this day. Some come in other ways to rpog Padova (applicable for those who want to get to the Organization in the country) and some are not, but join for the next day. I'm sure better than horiants ה"תקני route" and I recommend doing them (it's not like the standard route not beautiful or something). We would love to hear and see traces here of other travelers.

Note: the following days no manned cabins! It's time to stock up on food and everything needed for three days. You should come down here to the Valley, it's pretty much the only one that is comfortable to do that and have a chance to hitchhike (in both directions). A great writer and has kllato, and maps. But who doesn't need it can also handle what you might find at the grocery store in the village Sunday.

Here are some pictures from today: ה"סטנדרטי
Rising to Forcella la Scodavacca

Each of these pages.

Refugio Padua on a rainy day:

Our new tent. For those not paying attention-Orange!

Day 5:
After about an hour of Padua and for water splits into 4 variation or continue as usual. We chose 4 variation and we recommend it. First of all he goes through cute cabin titta. (a minute walk in the opposite direction for some great views) and apassim views on the more variation from the usual bpas The book doesn't say anything about titta.. This is a private cabin with very nice owners and a lot of information that helped us continue, there is a room for 8 persons, only 15 euros per person. No drinking water in the cabin itself but about 200 yards down the trail.
Before titta., Casera Vedorcia. when we go out to first empower, clean water pipe and lovely places for tent, but there may be abuses in the region.
At this point we have rain now and decided to stop to dry and warm up by the fireplace with titta. and when the rain didn't stop, we decided to stay there for the night and continue the next day. So this day was very short for us (approximately 3 hours).

---Are more full days. Hoping to complete soon.

The file with all the details way too big to upload here, so here's a link to it in my Google drive

Note that "Italy maps are sold in tobacconists! I.e. stores that sell cigarettes, tobacco, smoking and AIDS. I don't know why "

Notice the name of the company that makes the maps?

Yuval, it doesn't belong to this particular map, these stores sell maps of other maps as well.
Call them they sell tobacco shops also newspapers and magazines (which is apparently about to map).

I'm actually pretty sure I heard once it does

And the fact that this call maps tabaco manufacturer is not accidental.

The company's site while not write explicitly but they did indicate that they don't sell the maps independently only to the stores and bookstores.

As for the stores themselves-tabaco is the name of the historic name for those days that indeed sold them (and salt) two products that were a government monopoly and therefore sold only in specialized shops.

Today there is only the name and actually are used as stores for newspapers, books, maps, bus cards, calling cards (telchart), stamps, stationery, and cigarettes. Here is an explanation of the history of tabaco shops

Thank you for sharing!
We want to do a trek in Northern Italy in July, which includes camping,
It is therefore recommended to me on this track.
We have 5-6 days to trek, can shorten the runway so that it does not take more than 6 days
Or to find another route?

Thanks a lot!
