Discover the incredible world of via ferrata on a unique adventure to Creste di Costabella, Italy. On this easy trip, friendly for beginners, we’ll combine walks and via ferrata where World War I was fought.

Located between the Biois valley and the San Niccolò valley, Creste di Costabella is a beautiful and historic place with views of the Pale di San Martino, Catinaccio, Sassolungo and Marmolada. This via ferrata adventure takes place along the crest that connects the Monzoni mountains and the Cima dell’Uomo.

For this adventure, you can choose one or more via ferrata days in this stunning location. We’ll meet at the San Pellegrino Pass and take the Costabella chairlift. This will take us to Passo delle Selle. After some walking and via ferrata, passing by some trenches from the First World War, we’ll reach Ciastel de Costabela for a photographic exhibition from the trenches. Then, we begin the descent.

With moderate technical difficulty, this via ferrata is ideal for those who are starting out. Slowly, I’ll show you the way to become more confident in the mountains.

About the Guide

 
 

I was born in the plain in 1983, but as often happens to those who were born there, I have always loved the mountains. I was three years old when I wore my first skis, not knowing that this would become my strongest passion ... Skiing, walking, climbing: it is since I was a child that I go to the mountains, first with my parents and my grandfather and then with my friends.

The degree in forestry science was only the logical consequence of this passion, as well as the beautiful summers spent managing the refuge Capanna Punta Penia in Marmolada (the highest refuge in the Dolomites, on top of the highest mountain in the Dolomites!), which I call "the bus without wheels" and all over the Dolomites!
The last step (for now...) was to become a Mountain Guide, to let you experience what the mountain transmits to me!
… and to show you the famous " bus without wheels”

What People are Saying about Giovanni Orlando

 

Giovanni was an exceptionally wonderful guide! Our family spent the day with him climbing in Cinque Torri. He was incredibly patient with our children, and was able to find routes that we all enjoyed climbing. We loved every minute of the day and would recommend this trip to any family interested in doing some sport climbing near Cortina/Cinque Torri.
