Description

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.

More info

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).

Meeting point

Arabba, Corvra.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
