Hikers to Pradidali Hut

Have you ever tried a stunning itinerant trekking in the Dolomites? Have you ever shared the experience of a night in a mountain hut? Live the magic atmosphere of the evening in a mountain hut and let yourself be surprised by the fascination of the Pale di San Martino plateau, a mysterious stone plateau set at 2600 metres altitude - fifty square kilometres of bare rock tormented like a stormy ocean.
