  • Conquer the Delle Trincee to get the best views of the giant Marmolada.

  • Known as the Queen of the Dolomites, Marmolada is also a UNESCO-listed site.

  • Discover the mountains military history as we pass relics of WWI.


Climb the via ferrata of Delle Trincee to access the stunning Dolomite scenery as we face the front of the giant Marmolada (3,343 meters), the highest mountain in the Dolomites.

Known as the Queen of the Dolomites, Marmolada is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The via ferrata lies on the Padon crest, whose dark colour comes from its volcanic origins.

The recently-built via ferrata also gives stunning views of surrounding mountains.

Along the route of Delle Trincee (Italian for Way of the Trenches) we will discover several centuries-old Austrian outposts, relics from World War One.

We begin in the sleepy village of Arabba, catching a lift to Porta Vescovo. After an easy and fast approach, we start to ascend.

Once we are on the via ferrata of Delle Trincee we’ll begin to see the incredible views of Marmolada on one side and Piz Boe on the other.

Reserve your place among the majestic Dolomite mountains for a full-day via ferrata experience.

    About the Guide


    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.

    What People are Saying about Etienne Bernard


    This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

    Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!
