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.

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. Our tours involve small groups with a maximum of 4 people (on very easy via ferratas, it can be up to five). 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 us 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).

The tour was very nice, as was our guide. On top, good service and communication of the booking team.

There are no words to express the extraordinary experience I had not only of doing my first via Ferrata but having Enrico as my guide. The coordinating logistics process was outstanding despite changes on my part along the way and the E-S Adventure Guides staff was very prompt in responses and adjustments. They were very knowledgeable of routes and specific questions I had. On thé Via Ferrata itself, the entire time I felt 100% safe with Enrico despite being on a challenging route and weather starting to fade. He is truly the best company for a climb and I’m grateful for his endless positive encouragement. I was lucky to have met such an inspiring human being. I aim to do many more via ferratas now and when location is possible, I’d go only with E-S Adventure Guides (& Enrico!)

Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.
