Crossing the Dolomites

Italy 🇮🇹
The Photographer Ulla Lohmann and the Alpinist Sebastian (“Basti”) Hofmann crossed the mountain range in one year, divided in eight legs.


They hiked icy slopes, took their mountain bikes along alpine meadows and climbed sheer cliff faces. In winter, they travelled with their touring skies, always on the most direct line from the lowest point of the Dolomites to the highest mountain, the Marmolada.

Every meter of their 250 kilometers journey was done “by fair means”, without any outside help and transport.

Her book "Adventure Dolomites" is available online.
