Guide to Hiking Tre Cime Di Lavaredo

Tre Cime Di Lavaredo are three distinctive peaks in the Dolomites. The hike is a 10km loop which offers beautiful scenery and any one with a relative fitness level can do this hike.

I was based in Cortina d’Ampezzo and doing this hike from there without a car was easy. You get the 031 bus from Cortina d’Ampezzo to Misurina (cost €3.50) then the 030 bus from Misurina to Rifugio Auronzo (cost €4.00). The total return cost for transportation was €15.

If you time the buses right, you won’t need to wait at Misurina and get straight on the 031 bus to Rifugio Auronzo. I was using the Moovit app which I thought was super helpful to get correct bus timetables and routes. I also used the Sudtirol Mobil website to find different routes and get around the whole Sudtirol area.

I also noticed that lots of people get on the bus at this point as it costs €30 to bring your car to the car park, in comparison to €4 bus cost.

Total distance covered = 10km
Total time = approx. 2.5 hours including breaks

After getting dropped off at the car park, I suggest walking in an anti-clockwise direction so you have the peaks to the left hand side.

Follow track 101 which is clearly marked and you will then see the majesty of the peaks close up.

Keep following track 101 to Rifugio Locatelli which in my opinion has the best views of the three peaks!

From here, you can continue on track 105 back to Rifugio Auronzo. There are also other trails you can take if you fancy a longer hike.

This hike is suitable for all abilities and the loop was a great way to see the whole area!

Afterwards, you can catch the 031 bus back to Misurina, relax a little around the lake and grab some food then get the 030 bus back to Cortina d’Ampezzo.

  1. Hello
    Thank you for the best info!
    I have question which time of the year did you go to Tre Cime or rather the exact date? Because I am planning to go there on June 5th but I am not sure if the Rifugio Aurollo will be open and also if there is bus going to/from Cortina d’ampezzo at that time
    Thanks for the reply!

    1. Hi Jenny,

      I went in September (15th to be exact). The sudtirol or moovit websites will have the up to date bus information but I believe everything will be open in June.

      It’s an amazing hike so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
