So I am doing a thing I have never done before - clomping around the Dolomites in August. I and hubby are leaving in a few days. I was wondering if any CHs had experience with Rifugios (hostel/ mountain lodges) throughout the Dolomites. From what I understand, food is quite expensive as many of the rifugios are remote. We have made a few reservations at some. But there are so MANY that we are wondering if we will miss out on anything.
Anyone have any tips, advice, information? I'm super-excited as I need the break. I am a NYC high school teacher and I usually spend my days teaching 170 students a day.. I am so looking forward to spending some days climbing around unknown territories.
