Short adventure packed with beautiful views and scenic routes. You don't need a campervan necessarily, but it will make your life so much easier. Just be careful on narrow routes and mountain passes, also villages are very narrow, and especially balconies are often right above the road and possibly be hit by higher cars. Dolomites are quite popular - we chose end of May for this trip and it was amazing timing. Almost no tourists or hikers, camps were not full (some of them however could be closed). Prepare for all kinds of weather and go.
Lake Misurina

Drive to the first spot of the trip - a picturesque lake surrounded by peaks. Lake Misurina is known as the "Pearl of the Dolomites" due to its stunning beauty and crystal-clear waters. It has been a popular destination since the late 19th century, attracting tourists seeking the therapeutic benefits of its mountain air. Take a walk around the lake and enjoy the views.
Camping spot under Tre Cime

Spend a night at this parking spot as it's one of the best locations to start the hike to Tre Cime. These majestic peaks were formed over millions of years through geological processes, and they hold significance as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Tre Cime di Lavaredo

Hike to Tre Cime di Lavaredo for an iconic mountain experience. Prepare for an all-day activity, the hike is not that difficult, but the views are stunning and you want to enjoy it as much as possible. We started the hike in the parking spot where we spent the night so the route overall had almost 17 km but we didn't do a complete circle. An alternative route is that you park much closer to the peaks, however, the road is closed out of season, so we didn't get to choose. This part of the hike is beautiful too, you'll walk through woods, around lakes, no regrets about going the longer way. Nature here is unique and you'll enjoy every meter of the hike.
Camping Toblacher See

Drive to the camp and take some rest after the hike. Camping Toblacher See offers stunning views of the nearby Three Peaks and the serene Toblacher See (Lake Dobbiaco). The camp has all the facilities you need to take some rest and recharge.
Lago di Braies

Drive to Lake Braies, known for its emerald waters, also known as Pragser Wildsee, served as the filming location for several movies and TV shows. Legend has it that the lake is enchanted by the "White Lady," a spirit who appears on the water's surface during full moons. Enjoy a boat ride or take a walk around the lake.
Camping spot under Seceda

Spend a night at this parking spot again, it's one of the best locations to start the hike to Seceda and you'll save plenty of time in the morning.
Seceda hike

Hike to the Seceda summit directly from your parking spot. The name "Seceda" is derived from the Ladin word "Sas dla Crusc," meaning "Cross Mountain," referring to the distinctive cross located at the summit. If you visit this place in summer season, ride the Seceda cable car for a convenient way to access the hiking trails and enjoy the stunning scenery. We didn't have this option so again we had to walk from the parking lot. Again, the nature and view were so beautiful, we didn't regret any extra step we needed to take. Hike altogether was over 18 km with 1190 m elevation gain. Route has many variations, you can walk by Rifugio Firenze, which makes the hike a bit longer.
Val Gardena scenic route

Drive from Seceda to Gardena Pass. This scenic route traverses through the stunning valleys and traditional hamlets of the Dolomites with views of the alpine landscape. Winding roads and panoramic viewpoints make the route perfect for the Dolomites campervan adventure. The pass has been used for centuries as a trade route and was strategically significant during World War I, serving as a frontline between Italian and Austro-Hungarian forces.
