You don’t have to be an expert climber to experience a via ferrata! Follow these “iron paths” to experience the majesty of the mountains as you enjoy a thrilling adventure!
To help you climb or traverse a vertical landscape safely and securely, via ferratas are protected climbing routes built with cables, bridges, ladders, ziplines and more. They are especially popular in the Alps, where they originated to help troops cross the mountain during World War I – via ferrata translates to “iron path” in Italian. However, due to their increasing popularity, today they can be found around the world. While routes range in difficulty and intensity, many are appropriate for beginning climbers, including kids, and previous experience is not always required. Booking a qualified mountain guide will ensure you have a safe and rewarding experience. Plus, your guide will often provide all the equipment you need for the adventure.
This tour was unanimously my family’s favorite part of our trip. The view from the top is the most stunning 360 view I’ve ever seen. Enrico, our guide, was clear, calm and engaging. We had a person who is terrified of heights, and Enrico did an excellent job of balancing patient encouragement with determined push. For those more fearless who are experienced hikers and climbers, this particular via ferrata may be a bit underwhelming. A few of us wanted more of a challenge. Overall, fantastic.
We had a great experience with Mr.Enrico Geremia for our via ferrata trip up Marmolada. Enrico was a friendly guide and did not compromise with any of the safety equipment. We felt secure all the while with Enrico. We would certainly recommend our friends who have plans to hike the Dolomites in the future to use this platform 🙂
Grega was brilliant. An absolute legend. The climb was challenging but Grega made us feel safe and comfortable throughout.
Unfortunately due to the weather condition we need to cancel. Rudi was very helpful and responsive.
Thanks.. will try again
My husband and I visited Spain in August and made sure to add a via ferratta to our ‘to do’ list. Franscec was a wonderful guide. We loved his geology knowledge (we’re both geoloigsts), as well as his knowledge about the flora and fauna. The trip was fun, but we would have loved to have gone on a longer trip. Next time! We highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a fun outside adventure.
It. Was. So. Amazing. The trek was everything I hoped it would be and more. Enrico was a super guide – he was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and I could tell he really loves sharing the Dolomites with people.
He organized a fantastic trip – the huts we stayed in were amazing and the scenery was unbelievable.
I loved my excursion! Rudi is a great guide who has been guiding for over a decade and has a lot of experience–yet was incredibly patient with me as more of a novice climber. For purposes of this tour, Rudi is also from the area and had a lot of local insights. Thanks for the great experience, Rudi and explore-share 🙂
My family had a great time with our Via Ferrata trip! We all loved our guide, Renato!! He really made all the difference in making our experience from good to great!
He was very mindful and goes out of his way with ensuring that our family has an enjoyable and safe experience. He chose the right degree of difficulty for our trip. We enjoyed hearing about all his tips, stories, future trip recommendations. He took a lot of pictures of our family at great scenic spots.
He even treated us to cappucinno drinks along the way. We enjoyed being together with him so much, we shared beverage, snack and stories with him after the activity was over.
We will definitely seek him as our guide again next time and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
I don’t have much experience but I thought it was a great experience. The weather let us down a bit but everything else was first class in particular our guide. That, however, was Gudrun Schweikert not Rudi because he injured his knee. She was absolutely terrific. I can only highly recommend her. Kind regards; Uwe
Loved the trip!
Enrico was great, fantastic hike/climb & views. I would recomend this trip.
Enrico was an excellent guide and his routes were amazing. He was great with condfident and nonconfident climbers alike. I would recconmend him to anyone.
Enrico guided my family of 4 including 2 boys age 14 and 17 to do the Via Ferrata on Punta Anna. It was a fantastic day. First there was a vigorous walk up from Rifugio Dibona to the start of the Via Ferrata. We are a active family who hikes often but at the higher altitude, we still huffed a bit with the hike. But Enrico was patient and gave us whatever opportunities to take pictures and rest as we needed. During that hike, Enrico conversed with my boys to get a sense of how comfortable they may be with heights and climbing. Once the Via Ferrata started, it was just amazing. Enrico gave us clear instructions about how to do the Ferrata safely and kept an eye on us make sure that we were comfortable and having fun. He took amazing pictures of our family during the climb so that we did not have to fumble with our cameras and risk dropping it. That really allows me to enjoy the moment because it is indescribably beautiful and breathtaking. He then send us the pictures the next day and they were great and better than what I could have done. At the tricky parts of the climb, he offered to pull us up by rope if we were uncomfortable but we were all able to do it on our own. However, for others who may be unsure, it may be helpful to know that he can assist you in this way. Then on the way down, he showed us how to do a gravel run which we have never done and it was enormously fun! We cannot recommend Enrico enough as a guide for Via Ferrata, rock climbing , or skiing tour. He even gave us recommendations for future tours that we hope to do. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy.
Guide was Reini.
He guided us at just the perfect speed to be back in 5 hours at the alpspitzbahn top station.
Great experience – first via ferrata!
Had an amazing time with Enrico and Mauro. The views are just incredible and it was great to do something a bit different from just walking/hiking. They provided all the equipment and knew exactly where we were going and even took photos for us along the way which made the whole experience great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to via ferrata in the Dolomites!
Nous avons passé une excellente journée! Les explications et la patience du moniteur, nous ont permis de nous mettre tout de suite en confiance et d’apprécier au maximum notre journée d’initiation à la Via Ferrata! A faire et à refaire!!
It was amazing and unforgatable day in rocks near Barcelona. Very exсiting view during the all route. Marc is the best guide ever, communicative, cheerfull and very responsive. Thanks him to share this greate experience with us. No fear anymore 😉
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
