Anyone want to climb a via ferrata in the Italian Dolomites? If yes, then join me on this 1-day adventure in Monte Paterno!
The Dolomites are one of Italy’s most spectacular mountain ranges. Located in the northern region of the country, the Monte Paterno mountain is situated just in front of the Tre Cime Lavaredo, one of the region’s most famous landmarks. And because the area was significant during World War I, you will be sure to get a great history lesson in the middle of this active adventure!
We will begin this trip picking up you and your group at a convenient and designated pick-up location. Then, we will head to the Monte Paterno mountain, which is located in the eastern part of the Dolomites for a fun and easy via ferrata. We will then begin this trip with some instruction and safety information about how to use the via ferrata equipment and then start our ascent inside of a tunnel used during World War I!
This trip is relatively easy and intended for beginners, so it is perfect for those of you who have always wanted to give it a try. More still, this is organized as a private trip, so if you and a group have always wanted to via ferrata together in Italy, this could be a great opportunity to do so!
Request to book this trip if you have always wanted to via ferrata in the Dolomites!

I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
Etienne guided us on a special via Ferrata that was tailored to our needs based on our location in the Dolomites and our experience as beginners. He was very patient and helped us understand how to use the equipment and the best ways to climb the Via Ferrata. It was not too difficult, but definitely not for those who are less fit or afraid of heights. When we reached the top we had a good lunch and he explained he history of the area and of the Ladin culture. He even told us a local folklore. After we were done we decided to stay on the mountain and hike more. Etienne gave us a great recommendation for a trail that brought us to an unforgettable mountain pasture. Overall an experience of a lifetime!
Etienne was very accommodating and adjusted to our skill level. We didn\'t do the Monte Paterno via ferrata because we were too tired from the day before, so Etienne took us on an easier via ferrata which had a tunnel from WWI.

Etienne was an awesome guide for our one day trip. He was very patient with my husband who had never done anything like a Via Ferrata before. Very knowledgable and I would recommend him to anyone!

Etienne was a great guide! He is very friendly, knowledgable and adventurous and we had an amazing Via Ferrata excursion to Monte Paterno with him. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Dolomites. This is perfect for people trying out Via Ferrata for the first time - we felt safe and secure the entire time. Thanks a ton, Etienne! We had an amazing time and can\'t wait to be back!
