    Join me as we climb the via ferrata on Punta Fiames to gain stunning panoramas of Cortina Valley below.

    Punta Fiames climbs from the chain of mountains that form the Pomagagnon Group, stretching to 7,347 feet (2,239 meters).

    Punta Fiames is a classic via ferrata climbing challenge that clasps the west ridge of the summit.

    We will take a 30-minute hike before reaching the via ferrata. Then we will begin our climb of Punta Fiames that soars above the town of Cortina D’Ampezzo.

    As we conquer the summit we’ll experience the stunning panoramas of the valley, as well as the standing giants of Antelao and Cristallo, peaks that guard the Dolomites.

    The level of difficulty for this 1-day trip is intermediate, as it is a route with some exposed sections.

    Reserve your place now to climb the peak of Punta Fiames and experience the fine views of the valley.

    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 about Etienne Bernard


    This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

    Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!
