Description

When it comes to great mountain ranges in the world, few can compare to the stunning beauty of the Dolomites of Italy. And on this trip, you will get to explore those mountains on a via ferrata.

Widely considered to be the birthplace of via ferrata, the Dolomites are home to some of the best via ferratas in the world. Dating back to the first world war, the history of via ferrata is almost as thrilling as the activity itself! Used as a means to gain better position during the battles between Austria and Italy, metal ladders and steps were fixed to various peaks. And now, many decades later, those same steps and ladders are used as a means to explore and enjoy some of the most beautiful peaks in the Dolomites.

There are different via ferratas you can choose from on this trip. They include the Mesules via ferrata in the Sella Group, which is the oldest via ferrata in the Dolomites, dating back to 1912. There is also the Cesare Piazetta via ferrata and the Tomaselli via ferrata, along with several others you can enjoy. And you can rest assured that regardless of which one you choose the experience and the views are unbelievable. You will even get to gaze upon the highest mountain in the range, the Marmolada (3,343m).

It is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

To join me on this via ferrata adventure in the Dolomites, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

I can also take you on the Punta Anna via ferrata, in Cortina, on this full day trip.

About the guide

I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients. I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering. Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal.

Enrico è stato simpaticissimo e paziente con noi che eravamo un gruppo di principianti. Consiglio Punta Anna come prima esperienza di via ferrata ma anche per chi è più abituato penso sia un must. Consigliatissimo!!

10/10 would recommend! Our guide Enrico made this one of the best experiences of our trip. From helping with the more technical spots on the climb to the wealth of knowledge he provided about the Dolomiti, climbing and Italy in general. Enrico was so personable and an amazing photographer. Can not say enough good things about our experience!

Enrico Geremia was an excellent guide for our 1 day Rock Climbing adventure in Dolomites. He chose an excellent location, set up 2 top ropes for our large group to climb while he did several multi-pitch routes with between 1 - 4 climbers. Amazing location, great guiding thanks to Explore Share and Enrico.

As a group of 4 we went on a via ferrata adventure with Enrico and had an amazing time. Communication with Enrico was straightforward and he picked the perfect route: challenging but not too hard and consequently everybody in the group had a great time despite different levels of experience. It's very clear that Enrico is extremely competent and has a lot of experience. We always felt completely safe with him and he was very encouraging and fun to talk to. Looking forward to coming back. Highly recommended!

Enrico and the staff at explore share were extremely nice to work with. To our dismay, the weather didn’t cooperate and we were unable to do our hike. They were very quick in processing our refund. Hopefully we can try again in the future and will definitely consider Enrico and explore share again.

The tour was amazing, the place is absolutely beautiful and Enrico was a great guide! The snow conditions were not the best (one cannot control the weather!) but Enrico guided us well through it and gave a lot of important tips on how to skin up on varying conditions, and always alerted of of what to expect ahead. He was very patient with our relatively slow pace and we still managed to do a lot in the day we had! I can definetly recomend this tour for those who are starting in splitboarding/skitouring - the right level of challenge without beeing too hard! And Enrico is a great guide, professional, patient and also a fun person to be around and chat! I hope to make another tour or maybe climb with him on the next time I'm in the Dolomites!

This tour was unanimously my family's favorite part of our trip. The view from the top is the most stunning 360 view I've ever seen. Enrico, our guide, was clear, calm and engaging. We had a person who is terrified of heights, and Enrico did an excellent job of balancing patient encouragement with determined push. For those more fearless who are experienced hikers and climbers, this particular via ferrata may be a bit underwhelming. A few of us wanted more of a challenge. Overall, fantastic.

We had a great experience with Mr.Enrico Geremia for our via ferrata trip up Marmolada. Enrico was a friendly guide and did not compromise with any of the safety equipment. We felt secure all the while with Enrico. We would certainly recommend our friends who have plans to hike the Dolomites in the future to use this platform :)

It. Was. So. Amazing. The trek was everything I hoped it would be and more. Enrico was a super guide - he was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and I could tell he really loves sharing the Dolomites with people. He organized a fantastic trip - the huts we stayed in were amazing and the scenery was unbelievable.

Enrico guided my family of 4 including 2 boys age 14 and 17 to do the Via Ferrata on Punta Anna. It was a fantastic day. First there was a vigorous walk up from Rifugio Dibona to the start of the Via Ferrata. We are a active family who hikes often but at the higher altitude, we still huffed a bit with the hike. But Enrico was patient and gave us whatever opportunities to take pictures and rest as we needed. During that hike, Enrico conversed with my boys to get a sense of how comfortable they may be with heights and climbing. Once the Via Ferrata started, it was just amazing. Enrico gave us clear instructions about how to do the Ferrata safely and kept an eye on us make sure that we were comfortable and having fun. He took amazing pictures of our family during the climb so that we did not have to fumble with our cameras and risk dropping it. That really allows me to enjoy the moment because it is indescribably beautiful and breathtaking. He then send us the pictures the next day and they were great and better than what I could have done. At the tricky parts of the climb, he offered to pull us up by rope if we were uncomfortable but we were all able to do it on our own. However, for others who may be unsure, it may be helpful to know that he can assist you in this way. Then on the way down, he showed us how to do a gravel run which we have never done and it was enormously fun! We cannot recommend Enrico enough as a guide for Via Ferrata, rock climbing , or skiing tour. He even gave us recommendations for future tours that we hope to do. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy.

Had an amazing time with Enrico and Mauro. The views are just incredible and it was great to do something a bit different from just walking/hiking. They provided all the equipment and knew exactly where we were going and even took photos for us along the way which made the whole experience great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to via ferrata in the Dolomites!

It was a pretty awesome experience.  If you are ever in the Dolomites and need a guide, don't hesitate to look up Enrico.  Though this was my first guided experience, I highly recommend him.

If I could give Enrico more that five stars, I would! He is a great guide and patient teacher. He tailored instruction to my level and the goals that I had for the trip. He gave me specific drills to practice the foot work and ice tool placement that I needed to work on. He was encouraging and pushed me without making me uncomfortable or scared. He is a great climber with a lot of knowledge but he makes it easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks for the great trip!

He was really really fantastic and our trip was amazing! It was myself, my friend and our two sons and Enrico challenged us all and was really patient and great with our boys. We had 5 days of hiking and via ferrata in an incredibly beautiful uncrowded part of the Dolomites. I felt 100% comfortable with Enrico that he made sure our kids were safe in every situation. We all had an unforgettable experience and want to come back for more :). I keep telling people how great explore share is!

I arranged a last minute Ice climbing adventure through Explore-Share who were very accommodating to my request. My guide was Enrico, a very professional and experienced IFMGA mountain guide. It was an excellent experience to climb in Sottoguda, and I have recommended this to my friends. Enrico personalised the experience to my skill set and fitness levels, ensuring that I felt safe at all times. He clearly explained the techniques and movements required to enjoy the climbing. Can't recommend these guys enough! Highlight of my trip to the Dolomites.  Matt. Australia
