    If you want to spend three days of amazing via ferrata accompanied by a professional guide, this trip is for you. Let’s go to the most exciting routes of the Sarca Valley and its surroundings!

    The Sarca Valley, in northern Italy, offers a huge terrain with imposing limestone formations for via ferrata. This sports allows anyone to climb walls and it is also a way to start free climbing.

    This trip is a unique opportunity to discover many equipped via ferrata routes in the Sarca Valley and Lake Garda areas. You will enjoy fantastic settings and beautiful panoramic views.

    Che Guevara, Pisetta, Rio Secco (Salorno), Marangoni Montalbano, ferrata delle aquile (Paganella), Cima Capi, Gerardo Sega (Avio), Rio Sallagoni, Colodri, are some of the via ferrata around sarca valley (rio secco, aquile, montalbano and sega just out of the valley).

    We will start with easier and classic routes to gain confidence, and then we will increase difficulty.

    Our first spot is Cima Capi, offering a very scenic ferrata that goes 900 m up a vertical wall. It is not difficult but requires physical strength to gain the altitude. It drives you through a beautiful scenery for about 6 hours on an excellent quality limestone.

    We will also have an unforgettable experience crossing the sky in the “Ferrata delle Aquile” (italian for Eagles’ Via Ferrata). This is an exciting track enriched by breathtaking views of the Adige Valley.

    Finally we will head up a highly demanding via ferrata requiring some alpine experience: Pisetta. Its steep limestone slabs reach an altitude of 970 m.

    Furthermore, Sarca Valley offers a sub-mediterrranean charming climate due to its low altitude and the influence of Lake Garda: tourists visit this area during the entire year. There are many different options for accommodation and excellent restaurants, so you can spend an unforgettable vacation here.   

    So, if you are up for this via ferrata adventure in Northern Italy, please contact me! I’ll be glad to be your guide in this majestic walls that I know so well!

    About the Guide


    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide and Ski Intructor from Italy

    I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

    My big passion besides travelling are mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

    I was member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

    I became Mountain guide UIAGM. I guide in Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area and Sardinia.

    Wonderful experience for my daughters and me. We climbed in the Cinque 5 and had a beautiful and exhilarating experience

    We had a great day out with Marika and were spoilt with amazing views and a great climb up Monte Averau. We hiked up to the via ferrata from Cinque Torri instead of getting the chairlift and were treated with incredible views of cloud inversions on the mountains. The via ferrata itself is quite short, so great for beginners (more time hiking than on the via ferrata) but the views from the top were sensational!

    Marika is an amazing guide and a really nice person! we had a great time. She was not pushy but helped us to overcome our inner barriers and complete more that we expected. as a trainer Marika is absolutely professional and very passionate and open to share her knowledge, experience and love to the climbing. I really hope we will come back to works with her soon, since it was unforgettable

    My wife and I had an incredible experience on our via ferrata trek. Marica was so helpful when it came to directions, choosing the right trail and even provided a rain jacket for my wife as she did not have one. Marica was very safety conscious and we had complete trust in her abilities and knowledge of the area. Thank you
