Highlights

 
  • Explore the via ferratas of the Dolomites, the best way to know the mountain.

  • Experience the beautiful alpine scenery in one of Europe`s great ranges.

  • Benefit from having a fully-certified guide leading you through the climbs.

 

Guarding the northern borders of Italy, the Dolomite Mountains form part of the Southern Limestone Alps, and are shared between the provinces of Belluno, South Tyrol and Trentino.

The stunning alpine mountains are home to splendid scenery and quality climbs. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

The Dolomite Mountains were the birthplace of the via ferrata. The protected climbing routes originated during the First World War when the mountainside was the theatre of battle between Austria and Italy. Fighting for higher positions, the soldiers fixed steps and ladders into the rock to be able to navigate the mountains more easily.

More than half a century later, these fixtures provide excellent access to the sublime peaks of the Dolomites. Their morbid origins have morphed into joyful installations for the mountains.

And the Dolomites are sprinkled with adrenaline-fueled climbs, such as the highest peak along the range, the Marmolada.

Rising to a peak of 3,343 meters, the Marmolada is the highest mountain in the Dolomites, which lies between the Italian provinces of Trentino and Veneto. Its glacial environment and high altitude present rewarding challenges on the Queen of the Dolomites.

The Mesules via ferrata is located on the Sella Group, a plateau massif that stands to the north of the Marmolada. Its highest peak is Piz Boe that rises to 3,151 meters. The via ferrata is actually the oldest in the mountain range, which dates back to 1912.

The Cesare Piazetta via ferrata takes you to the top of the Piz Boe in a thrilling climb with a stunning backdrop. Or test yourself with the Tomaselli via ferrata, located on the high mountain pass of Passo Falzarego, home to local legends.

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

 

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!
