Type of Trip



  • 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.

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


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.
