Description

The Dolomites are well-known for its exciting via ferratas. If you want to try some of the best routes, join me on this week-long via ferrata trip!

The Dolomites are located in northern Italy, near the Austrian border. Known for its breathtaking scenery, they are also famous for their role as an outpost during World War II, the residue of which you will see on this trip.

Our starting point will be the beautiful alpine town of Cortina d’Ampezzo. Throughout seven days, we’ll explore the area known as ‘Sexten Dolomites‘, which are home to the Dolomites’ most iconic landmark: the Tre Cime di Lavaredo (also known as ‘Drei Zinnen’ in German or ‘Three peaks of Lavaredo’, in English).

We will hike and climb several via ferrata routes, reaching the summits of some of the Dolomites’ most impressive peaks and through historic tunnels.

This trip offers an intimate size of 3-5 participants, making it a manageable and fun week-long adventure!

About the guide

The mountains are my home. Ever higher, steeper and more difficult climbs are what motivates me. After Reinhold Messner , I am the first South Tyrolean to successfully climb all Seven Summits . I have set foot on the highest peaks in the world a total of 14 times and intend to continue making my high altitude dreams come true in the coming years.

Come with me and discover the most beautiful mountains in the Alps and the Dolomites or join one of my trips to some of the most stunning mountain areas in the world. You can also climb the 7 summits with me!
