    The Piz Boe (3,152m) is a fantastic peak in the Sella Group in the Dolomites of Italy. In fact it is the highest peak in the entire Sella Group massif. And on this day trip you will get to reach the top by way of the thrilling and incredibly scenic Cesare  Piazetta via ferrata.

    Like all via ferratas, the Cesare Piazetta via ferrata is an exciting, unforgettable experience. It will feel like you are walking on the walls of the mountain itself. And while such a concept can seem frightening at first, you can rest assured that you will be safe and secure at all times.

    This trip will last between 4 and 6 hours. And every minute of the way you will get to admire the beauty of the Sella Group massif and the Dolomite mountain range.

    Beginning at Passo Pordoi, we will make our way along a hiking trail until we reach the start of the Cesare Piazetta via ferrata. Once the via ferrata begins, the first 100 meters or so are demanding. As a result, it is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. As the day progresses, the via ferrata will get easier. Hence giving you more time to appreciate the priceless views. And when you get to  the top of the Piz Boe, you will get to enjoy the best views of all.

    If you like adventure and fantastic views of great peaks, this trip is for you. So send me a request and enjoy the Cesare Piazetta via ferrata. I look forward to hearing from you.

    I can also lead you on the oldest via ferrata in the Sella Group, the Mesules via ferrata on this day trip.

    About the Guide


    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.

    What People are Saying about Etienne Bernard


    This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

    Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!
