The Dolomites High Route 8 leads from Bressanone to Salorno. It goes over a crest, which flanks the Etschtal/Val'Adige valley and the Eisacktal/Valle Isarco valley.
The path begins together with the Dolomites High Route 2 in Bressanone, later the paths separate. The Dolomites High Route 8 offers a relatively easy crossing of the Dolomites. It was built relatively late, in 1981, from the existing network of paths. The most demanding part of the route is the passage from the Passo di Costalunga to the hut Rifugio di Pisa. Since there are many bases, the path can be followed in quite short stages, which makes it also exciting for families with children. The duration of the trail should be between 10 and 13 days.
By car from Munich and Innsbruck via the Brenner Pass. From the east (Lienz, Brunico) through the Pustertal/Val Pusteria valley and from the south (Modena, Trento, Bolzano) through the Adige and Eisacktal/Vall'Isarco valleys.
