Like a scene from a beautifully shot film, throughout this day long trip, you will get to trek on a high glacier directly in front of the iconic Mont Blanc peak (4,810m), where you will get to enjoy views of the Alps that you will never forget.

Our adventure will begin at the SkyWay ticket office in Courmayeur. From there, we will take a cable car ride to Punta Helbronner (3,472m). At that point, we will begin our easy and incredibly scenic trek on the glacier before returning to Punta Helbronner. Another wonderful highlight of this trip is we will visit the Rifugio Torino, where you can enjoy even more amazing views.

Due to the easy nature of this trip, no prior experience is necessary. As a result, even mountaineering beginners can enjoy this mesmerizing journey into the Italian Alps.

Not a very difficult trip, you will get to enjoy a thrilling trek on a beautiful glacier in the Alps of Italy. And throughout that trek, you will get to gaze upon several amazing peaks, including the aforementioned Mont Blanc. If that sounds like an adventure you wish to enjoy, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
