1-day climb on the Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata in the Dolomites

1-day climb on the Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata in the Dolomites | undefined

Climb the Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata with an experienced certified local guide, a region that blends bloody European history with stunning Dolomite scenery.


Dolomite Mountains

+1 Day

May - Oct




* Climb the via ferrata in the beautiful Dolomite mountain range.

* Sense the dramatic wartime history on the Costabella ridge.

* The region's stunning scenery is accessible to most given its relative ease.


Join me on a full day of fascinating climbing on the beautiful Dolomite mountains on the Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata, that’s surrounded by history.

Located along the San Pellegrino Pass (1,918m), the via ferrata follows the Costabella ridge, where a century before was the sight of the Austrian-Italian Front, cluttered with trenches and tunnels, barracks and emplacements. These permanent blemishes are like painful war scars along the mountainside.

The vividness of history matches the stunning scenery experienced from our climb, which makes it such a fantastic opportunity for those who are new to climbing, because the level of difficulty is easy.

From our position in the mountainside, we’ll be able to see two giants of the Dolomites, San Martino and Marmolada. Spectacular views will accompany us the whole time of ascending the via ferrata.

With the level of difficulty being easy, it is more of an open via ferrata than most others. However, due to the nature of the activity, potential participants are expected to have a good level of fitness. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place on the 1-day Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata in the Dolomites. Experience the thrill of climbing and the soberness of wartime relics.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Patrick & Walter (German speaking), Paolo, Matteo and Davide.

If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

What people are saying about this trip



We had two wonderful days in the Dolomites. Etienne Bernard guided us two days. The first day was easy (as we asked for). the next day he recommended a medium via ferrata trip, it was challenging, but we loved it. Etienne was very experienced, and guided us on a trip we never could done alone.
