A lot of people’s first view of the Dolomites might be that classic over the shoulder shot, over and along rising grass plain to a 3 peak mountain stood in front. Marta’s was too, and from there she dedicated time to explore the region.
In this episode we welcome Marta from In A Far Away Land. Marta is someone who has had a fantastic amount of experience in the Dolomites, and a perfect suggestion for the podcast from previous guest Kate Fletcher (from Bags Always Packed).
Kicking the episode off, Marta goes over some tips and general advice, including to book the mountain huts in advance. Later on, she also advises to take a map with you and advises of the best time to visit – and the busiest!
Hiking The Dolomites
First off, we discuss two hikes in the region; a day hike and a multi-day hike. But, Marta quickly explains how there are so many that are so beautiful; what are her favourite ones today, could be replaced by others the next day as she recalls stunning memories.
We go over in detail what to expect, where to stay and what we’ll be seeing.
Cable To The Top
The Via Ferratas are what grab my attention though. With different skill levels, and approximately 700 in the region, narrowing these down to favourites are hard.
Marta has done at time of writing about 60 of them, and is happy to share three: a beginner, intermediate and advanced route.
What comes next, as you would expect from a travel blogger, is fantastic information on the different ways to reach the start points, what to expect, the kit you’ll need… the information goes on.
I want to listen, now!

“Recording podcasts with Chris was like meeting an old friend for a coffee, whom you haven’t seen for a while, but have tons of stories to exchange. He was genuinely interested in everything I had to say about my travels through the Canadian Rockies and the Italian Dolomites (spoiler: it was a lot) and we kept talking long after the record button was switched off. His passion for outdoor adventure shines through and he found a way to connect all of us adventure junkies in his podcast” Marta Kulesza, Travel Writer at In A Far Away Land, Episodes 61 and 71
