1+ day Via ferrata in the Dolomites

Renato, IFMGA certified mountain guide, proposes a flexible trip to explore one or several via ferratas of the beautiful Dolomites, in northeastern Italy. Just choose your favourite routes and he will guide you there!


Dolomite Mountains

1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct

Open to everyone



  • Explore the vertical world of the Dolomites
  • Marvel at the panoramic views
  • Challenge yourself with one or more via ferrata routes!


Located in northeastern Italy, the Dolomites are home to more than 170 via ferrata routes. Join me for one or more days to have an amazing time in this Italian rocky paradise.

This beautiful mountain range is characterized by its huge towers, pinnacles, spires and vertical limestone walls. The Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and they are a world renown destination for via ferrata. In fact, this is where via ferrata was born!

In this occasion I propose you to design a program according to your wishes and time available in the area. Anything from meeting for a half day and share one via ferrata route, to embarking on a multi-day adventure to explore the best routes of the mountain range.

Some of my favourite spots are:

  • Marmolada west ridge. A classic route in the Dolomites which takes a full day includes crossing a glacier. A rather easy via ferrata, although glacier crossing has to be considered.

  • Tridentina Sella, in the Sella group. A challenging via ferrata with easy access, with beautiful views of the mountains and the village at the foot of the massif. It can be done in a half day.

  • Mesules, in the Sella group. One of the oldest via routes in the area, doable in a half day. A very demanding exposed via ferrata which starts at the Sella pass and ends at the summit of Piz Selva.

  • Roda de Vael and Masarè, in the Rosengarten group. Two routes close by which we can easily do in the same day. Masarè is the most demanding of the two, but also incredibly beautiful.

But there are many more incredible routes!

Send me a request so we can start planning, the potential of the Dolomites for via ferrata is immense! It will be my pleasure to guide you there. I also offer via ferrata courses for all levels which you can check out.

About the guide

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

Guide Benny served us very well. (We never met Renato. ) she kept us safe and gave us all the adventure we could handle. She also gave us a a lift to our Rifugio at day’s end—beyond the call of duty. We highly recommend her.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The via Ferrata was great, the view was stunning and our guide, Benny, was wonderful. She oriented us of what’s coming, knowledgeable about the area, and making sure we’re comfortable with the pace. She helped us also with our accommodation to and from Figo di Fassa to the foot of the chairlift which we really appreciated her for that. About the via ferrata, make sure you wear mountain shoes.

Renato was a fantastic guide. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the dolomites and was able to educate me and my friends about the region while providing a safe and fun Via Ferrata experience. I would highly recommend Renato for anyone looking for an experienced Via Ferrata guide

We had an absolute blast with Bruno! Such a great day and great memories! Super grateful that he took a lot of pictures and shared them with us!

Explore share were highly responsive and found me a guide very last minute who was excellent. My only comment would be that due to the speed at which we completed the route, the day ended early afternoon so it would have been nice to fill out the rest of the time - it would therefore be helpful to clarify what is included in the price (e.g. am I paying for time such as a full day, or the route etc).

Renato had organized Bruno as a guide as he couldn’t do the day we wanted. Renato Everything was well communicated. Bruno was an excellent guide who knew so much about the Dolomites. All in all a great day. Thoroughly recommended.
