    The Dolomites Haute Route offers the possibility of exploring the eastern part of this mountain range. This 6-day excursion goes from Sesto, in Val Pusteria, to Pieve di Cadore and is full of spectacular attractions: the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the bizarre rock formations of Cadini di Misurina, the aquamarine blue Sorapis lake and the impressive Antelao glacier.

    On the first day, you will enjoy impressive views of the north side of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. We will watch it from the Antonio Locatelli Refuge, where we will spend the night.

    We will then cross the Lavaredo Forcella, pass on Auronzo refuge and deal with our first Via Ferrata: the Bonacossa. After that, we will walk across valleys and rocks and get to climb simple but exciting steps. On the way, we will walk on the Antelao Glacier and then sleep in its refuge.

    This is a demanding trip as we will be climbing up to 1,200 meters per day in 7-hour walks. So safety equipment, a good head for heights and a very good fitness level are essential.

    Please contact me to book a spot. You will not regret it! 

    Or, if you don’t have so much time but want to enjoy the area, please check out my 1-day Monte Paterno classic via ferrata in Sesto or my 1-day demanding Via Ferrata in Sesto.

    Our trip with Herbert was fabulous! He was very accommodating, picking us up from our hotel and then dropping us off at the train station. The via ferrata itself was great, we had a blast. Herbert guided us well through the tougher sections. I felt safe and confident the entire time. We would absolutely book Herbert again, and I was very happy with explore-share. Thanks!
