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.
