A 3-day via ferrata adventure in Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites, together with an IFMGA mountain guide.


Dolomite Mountains

3 Days

May - Oct




* Reach Marmolada, the tallest mountain in the Dolomites.

* Take a different via ferrata route each day.

* Spend the nights in beautiful huts with great surrounding views.


The Dolomites, a stunning mountain range in northern Italy, are the place where via ferratas were born. In this 3-day trip, we’ll take some of these protected climbing routes and reach Marmolada, ‘the queen of the Dolomites’. 

Rising up to 3343 m, Marmolada is the highest mountain in this range and has several peaks. Besides, it boasts the only glacier in the Dolomites, the Marmolada Glacier.

We’ll take different medium-level via ferrata routes each day. None of them are long, but there’s an option to make the trip easier the third day in case you’re too tired. We’ll also visit Marmolada Glacier.

Besides, we’ll spend the night in beautiful mountain huts (Padon hut and Pian dei Fiacconi hut) with stunning views of the Sella Group and Fedaia Lake.
