    There is no better place to learn and practice Via Ferrata than in the land where it was born: The Dolomites. Our base camp for this tour will be Cortina d’Ampezzo. Cortina is a quaint mountain town nestled in the heart of the Dolomites in northern Italy. All around, there are Via Ferrata routes for every level from beginner to advanced.

    When I pick you up at your accommodation in the morning, we will select our venue for the day together as a group. As this is a private tour, we have the freedom to go anywhere we like. A few options include Punta Anna, Col dei Bos, Tommaselli, Sci 18, Punta Fiames, Lipella and Tofana di Dentro. Once we have settled on a destination, we will head up into the Dolomites by car for a day of fun and adventure.

    This tour is open to Via Ferrata climbers of all levels. I climb exclusively with small groups and take a maximum of 5 people on each tour. You can come solo, or bring your friends and family along. If yours is a mixed level group, not to worry. We will find the perfect venue to suit both beginner and more experienced climbers.

    Via Ferrata is a fun and accessible way to get out into the mountains. Plus, there is no better place to do it than here in the birthplace of Via Ferrata itself. Click “Request to book” to get in touch with me and plan your upcoming adventure in the Dolomites.

    Sometimes one day is not enough! Since there are so many Via Ferrata venues in Cortina, you can opt to book this tour for multiple days. This will give you the chance to explore several of the world-class Via Ferrata routes here in the Dolomites (highly recommended).

    About the Guide


    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Italy

    I was born in Padua on 1988. I have been in the mountains since I was a child thanks to my parents. And it is thanks to this passion that I have been fortunate to spend summer and winter up and down for these wonderful places. That’s how I discovered and fell in love with skiing and climbing.

    At age 16 I dropped out the wonderful sport I practiced, Rugby, to devote myself to this new passion. I started attending the crags of Rocca Pendice and Lumignano near home, where, when I went to school, I spent the afternoons hanging on their walls. Finally, growing up, I began to explore the Alps paradise, from Mont Blanc to Monte Rosa, to the Ortles group, Cevedale and so on.

    During the last year of high school I decided that the Alpine Guide would be my future. So I started preparing for the long journey, made up of many sacrifices, but above all a lot of satisfaction.

    In September 2012 after a year and a half of work I realized my dream by completing the Guide course and becoming part of the world of Italian Alpine Guides. Become an Aspirant Alpine Guide at the age of 23 and later after the 2 and a half years of canonics practiced and examinations officially become Alpine Guide at the age of 26.

    Now I want to be able to pass on this passion and all that has been transmitted to me in these years to all those who will choose me as a companion of adventures.
