In northeastern Italy, the Dolomites are a top destination for outdoor adventures lovers from all over the world. One of its most attractive spots are the more than 170 via ferrata routes. Are you ready for a safe climbing adventure? Then join me!

Via ferratas (italian for “iron paths”) were originally built during WWI by the Italian and the Austro-Hungarian armies as a way to make the mountains accessible. Most of these climbing routes have been equipped with new technology but respecting the old routes. They now allow you to reach some amazing summits!

Nowadays, via ferrata is a stunning way to experience the magnificence of alpine environments, and the Dolomites are great area for this activity! From children and first timers to expert rock climbers, there are crags for everyone here. Furthermore, if you want to try more than just one route, you can join me for several days!

Roda di Vael, with an easy access from Val di Fassa, Tridentina and Piz Da Lech, near the village of Corvara, and Marmolada west ridge, which gets you to the top of the highest peak in the Dolomites, are some of my favorites ferratas in the area. However, you can choose the one that you want to head up!

So, if you want to try the amazing via ferratas of the Dolomites, please get in touch with me. I’ll be glad to guide you through these  breathtaking historical climbing routes!

I also offer rock climbing adventures in the Sarca Valley, specially for women: check out my intermediate and my easy trip!

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

My big passion besides traveling is mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

I was a member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

I became an IFMAG Mountain guide. I guide in the Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area, and Sardinia.

What people are saying about this trip



Our family with kids ages 5, 9 and 12 had a wonderful day with Marika at a via ferrata! She was amazing at catering to the needs of our 3 very different children including one who was feeling anxious. Our 5 year old was completely enamored with Marika & wanted to stay in Italy with her! In addition to being a lovely person I felt safe the entire time and she was appropriately cautious as you would want anyone to be with your children. Highly highly recommended!!



Marika was amazing! She was very knowledgeable of the history of the Dolomites and the terrains. She made us feel very safe and comfortable- would highly recommend another tour with her! Excellent guide and highlight of our Italy trip!



Wonderful experience for my daughters and me. We climbed in the Cinque 5 and had a beautiful and exhilarating experience



Marika is a competent and professional guide. I did the tour (La via Ferrata Tridentina, located in the Sella Group, just below the Gardena pass) with my 11 year old son and the kindness of marika's was truly commendable. ****really recommended****



We had a great day out with Marika and were spoilt with amazing views and a great climb up Monte Averau. We hiked up to the via ferrata from Cinque Torri instead of getting the chairlift and were treated with incredible views of cloud inversions on the mountains. The via ferrata itself is quite short, so great for beginners (more time hiking than on the via ferrata) but the views from the top were sensational!
