In 2017, CAI Feltre and the Dolomiti Bellunesi Park Authority relaunched a project created by a group of young men, all under 30, born and raised the valleys of Belluno, now called the Alta Via Dolomiti Bellunesi.
It was co-funded by the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park and carried out by CAI Feltre together with the CAI groups based in Belluno, Longarone, Val di Zoldo, Oderzo and Agordo.
Key private partners such as AKU, Ferrino and Karpos were involved in getting the project under way. These companies financed some of the work and gave their support, along with other local businesses such as Dolpi – Eyewear Made in the Dolomites – and the local brewery, La Birreria Pedavena.
In 2018, a number of meetings were held with local associations, in particular the Centro Studi Montagna Sospirolese and Val di Zoldo Tourism Association. That summer the trails were marked, GPS tracks were recorded, photographs and video were taken. The work continued until the end of the year.
In 2019, the Alta Via Dolomiti Bellunesi became a reality!
