The Vie Ferrate

We will accompany you to fantastic places, from above Lake Garda to the Dolomites and the Adamello-Presanella mountain groups, where, with a spot of physical preparation, you will feel like a proper mountaineer.

Along these mountain trails, with steel ladders and safety cables to which you can secure yourself, under the supervision of an experienced Mountain Guide you can safely continue your ascent and explore this majestic environment. Ring routes are available and, according to your training and physical conditions, can bring you from the valley floors right up to the very peaks of the Dolomites or other Alpine summits.

Organization:
Minimum 2 participants – maximum 6 for single Mountain Guide (according to the difficulty of the Via Ferrata). It is possible to organise large groups for companies and team-building events.

It’s important that you don’t suffer from a particular fear of heights (acrophobia) and as far as physical preparation is concerned be aware that the simpler trails take between 3-4 hours whereas an entire day is required to complete the more difficult Vie Ferrate such as Lipella (Cortina d’Ampezzo) or the “Che Guevara” (Pietramurata).

Certain excursions require a number of days to complete such as the “Bocchette” (Brenta Dolomites) and the crossing of the Rosengarten Group (called the “Catinaccio” locally).
