This 6km trail represents everything needed in a trail: adventure, views, difficulty and history. Adventure: all the tunnels are spectacular and you need a light to get through them. Views: the views of the dolomites outside the tunnels are amazing. Difficulty: we started at the...More

This is a challenging hike through the tunnels with a reward after the 52nd tunnel ... a rifugio with good eats! You can walk back on the road to the parking area. If you really want a fun challenge, consider doing the via ferrata that...More

This hike takes most fit and properly-equipped (boots, flashlights, water, rain gear, etc.) hikers three hours to get up to Rif Papa and an additional two hours down the Scarubbi Road to return to the trailhead. Add an additional hour if one leaves from Passo...More

Make sure you punch in the longitude and latitude on your gps as it's almost impossible to get the correct address for this place. Also make sure you bring six euros in CHANGE for parking. The hike itself had great views if it's a clear...More

This is one of the most amazing and beautiful hikes which can be accomplished in a day, alternatively you can stay overnight in the accommodation at the top of the mountain then return the following day. The 52 Galleries (tunnels) were created by Italian tunnelling...More

Probably it's a bit too late now, but you're not allowed to ride it, for your safety, but more important for hikers' safety. You can ride "Strada degli Scarubi" instead, that leads to Rifugio Papa. Thank you. Fabio.
