Benefit from having a fully-qualified guide right by your side.
The stunning mountain range of the Dolomites is the ideal place for climbing via ferratas.
In fact, the range in northern Italy is the birthplace of the via ferrata, being created during the dark days of the First World Day for soldiers to be able to quickly traverse the mountainside.
During our 3-day tour we’ll cover some of these protected climbing routes before reaching Marmolada, known as the Queen of the Dolomites.
Marmolada is the highest mountain in the Dolomites, reaching 3,343 meters, and has several summits. It is also home to the Marmolada Glacier, the only glacier in the Dolomites.
We’ll be climbing different via ferratas each day of intermediate level, as well as visiting the Marmolada Glacier.
After long days of exhilarating climbing we’ll come to rest at some beautiful mountain huts. These include the Padon Refuge, which is situated opposite the Marmolada Glacier, offering spectacular views.
And the Pian dei Fiacconi refuge is the gateway to the glacier, and is the site of stunning views of the Sella Group, the plateau-shaped massif, and the Fedaia Lake.
Get in touch now to reserve your place in the incredible Dolomite mountainside for an action-packed 3-day via ferrata tour.
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.

Fantastic 3-day via-ferrata adventure at the Dolomites having Étienne as our 5* guide. Beautiful views, excellent weather and great company. Physical effort and the difficulty of the via-ferrata were challenging but adequate to our level, the mountain refuges were comfortable and the food was good. Overall, highly recommended to clear your mind of the hustle and bustle of the daily rotine.
Loved Etienne!! We would definitely be back to have another adventure. He was very accommodating to our capabilities and the change in weather. He explained techniques to hike better and more efficiently that we plan to use in the future. He also quickly suggested multiple itineraries because it was raining on our first day and would have made the Via Ferratas a bit dangerous. Overall, having him on the team made it so much more fun! Highly recommended!
Booked 3 days via Ferrata tour with guide Etienne through Explorer-Share. The booking process was easy, online customer service was helpful in checking availabilities and got me connected with the right guide. During the planning phase, Etienne was helpful and responsive. Based on our experiences, he recommend 3 day tour in the Garden of Roses region, and made all lodging arrangement beforehand. The trip was fantastic, definitely the highlight of our trip for both me and my 2 boys (age 9 and 11). Etienne was knowledgeable, and made all the right calls to helps us staying dry when weather turned worse. He communicated extremely well with my young boys, built their confidence and trust, and challenged them the same time. I would recommend Etienne to all my friends and hopefully we can have his services again in our future trips. Thank you
The tour was an amazing introduction to the Dolomites and Via Ferrata, leaving us sure to return to the area. Etienne’s knowledge and passion for the area is infectious and adds an extra dimension to the experience. The routes are breathtaking in themselves and a great physical challenge, with Etienne’s knowledge adding a great intellectual undertsanding of the area and it’s history. Everything was super organised and really easy with the help of the Explore Share team, thanks!
