Type of Trip
Colfosco is a small village at the heart of the Dolomites, in Northern Italy. It belongs to the municipality of Corvara and it’s located at the foot of the Sella Group and Mount Sassongher.
Although this place receives tourists the whole year, it’s specially popular among winter sports enthusiasts. As a matter of fact, it is really close to Dolomiti Superski area, the largest ski circuit in Europe.
In addition to this, the surroundings of Colfosco are also known as a great place to practice ice climbing. Actually, there are three lines of beautiful ice falls. Each of this circuits has different levels of difficulty, from medium to hard.
Because of that, this trip is oriented to climbers with previous experience. During a day of multi pitch ice climbing we will reach a maximum altitude of 200 m.
It’s worth pointing out that you will need technical equipment, like harness, helmet, crampons and ice axes. But don’t worry, you will have the chance to rent everything.
If you want to improve your ice climbing skills in a beautiful environment, please contact me. I’m an Italian IFMGA mountain guide living in the Dolomites, and I will be happy to show you some of my favorite places in Colfosco.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
You will need ice climbing equipment (harness, helmet, crampons, ice axes). You can rent these for around 10 EUR per day. You will also need a car to reach the climbing spots (but no lift passes or train tickets will be necessary).
About the Guide
I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients. I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering. Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal.
