Haute Route Dolomites Swiss Alps 2014
After launching the Haute Route Alps in 2011 and Haute Route Pyrenees in 2013, the trilogy has been completed with the 2014 launch of the Haute Route Dolomites Swiss Alps.
The Haute Route Dolomites Swiss Alps route follows the established format of Haute Route adventures, staring in the beautiful city of Venice on the Adriatic coast and taking in 17 mythical cols.
Just like in the Haute Route Alps and Haute Route Pyrenees, an individual time trial up the 48 hairpin turns of the Passo Stelvio is sandwiched between two marathon stages. To complete the Haute Route you will need to climb over +19,000m in seven timed stages over 880km.
