The Cascate di Fanes via ferrata is an excellent and easy climb in the Dolomite mountains.

Located close to the alpine town of Cortina, which is in the heart of the Dolomites. With over a thousand years of history and a strong tourist destination, Cortina has plenty to offer with its UNESCO-listed surroundings of the mountainside.

Ascend the rocks with the gushing sound of the waters of the Rio di Fanes, and the stunning waterfall. With a drop of 120 meters, it is one of Italy’s most impressive waterfalls.

We’ll begin by driving 15 minutes from Corina to a beautiful natural park. From here we’ll walk cross lovely countryside where the greens of the forest blend into the greys of the limestone Col Bechei.

The via ferrata is the perfect climb for families to achieve together, as it is suitable for children. What’s more, the approach to the beginning of the climb is nice and easy, offering wonderful views.

About the guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

After the hard rain in the night before, the waterfall had became huge with great splash. We enjoyed so much with the excellent guide.

Our guide was informed that we were 2 and that we had our own gear. Instead we were 6 and had no gear or experience at all. He solved the problem within 15 minutes and gave us an amazing experience!
