Day 2: Cinque Torri hike

Transfer by minibus to Passo Falzarego, the starting point for the Cinque Torri hike, an emblematic historic site of the Dolomites. The trail begins to climb gently.

Advance through a magnificent field of stones and arrive at the foot of Averau, a rocky citadel culminating at an altitude of 2649 meters. You will circle the mountain and soon arrive at the Nuvolau pass. From there, it is possible to climb the summit of the same name. The panoramic view is well worth the 150 m of additional elevation gain!

You will then reach the Cinque Torri, renowned among climbers and a place of major historical interest. They were the scene of violent battles between Italian and Austro-Hungarian troops during the First World War, and the remains of these battles are still visible today.

Return to Pocol in the afternoon.

During our ascent, we will discover military remains which, like the day before, date from the First World War. We then descend to the foot of impressive vertical cliffs in a pleasant valley, to arrive at the Scotoni refuge, frequented by Italian families.

Today, we'll circumnavigate this majestic peak along a splendid balcony path, commencing from the Dibona refuge.

Return journey to Pocol.

Circling the imposing and vertical cliffs of Croda del Lago, we then descend gently to the tranquil shores of Lago di Federa. Our return path winds through the forest, leading us back to the minibus.

Gaze upon the towering stone giants, with the majestic Cima Grande, the highest of the three at 2999 meters above sea level, flanked by Cima Ovest and Cima Piccola. Next, we venture to the Locatelli refuge, offering unparalleled views of the north face of these iconic peaks. Embark on a scenic tour around these majestic mountains before descending through the forest back to Misurina.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
