Description

Enjoy stunning views and some fun climbing routes on this 6-day hut to hut hiking and via ferrata tour in the Sexten Dolomites.

This hiking and via ferrata tour combines everything you want out of a trip to the mountains! You'll have the time to wander through pretty alpine meadows, you'll challenge yourself with steep climbs and you'll get your adrenaline pumping with exciting via ferrata routes. Some of this routes were built during the First World War!

Participants need to be able to walk between 5 and 7 hours per day. Take into account that terrain may be challenging at times, so you need to be in good physical condition. For the via ferrata, you also have to be comfortable with heights.

We will meet in Innichen, a pretty Tyrolean town. From there, we'll take the lift up to Haunold hut from where our adventure begins! During the next couple of days, you'll get to experience everything the Dolomites have to offer.

One of the highlights will be the sunrise over Drei Zinnen on the last day. If the weather is good, we'll get to enjoy and photograph the sun rising over these mountains, bathing them in red light. You won't believe the views!

However, if you're a via ferrata fan and would like to take a look at a more dedicated program, check out my 6-day via ferrata tour in the Kitzbühel Alps.

Contact me if you have any questions you may have regarding this hiking and via ferrata tour. I’ll be happy to help you plan a very exciting week in the stunning Sexten Dolomites!

We had a great time with Andreas. He is very professional and experienced guide. He provided good safety session before our trip and provided personal safety equipment for a very reasonable price. His choice of routes were correctly matched to our abilities to challenge us and provide quite an exciting time. We would never be able to experience this kind of skiing without a guide and Andi was a great choice. I would highly recommend him to any clients from a beginners to a professionals. Also I enjoyed using your site for booking guide services. You were fast and informative. Transaction was simple, transparent and rate was very competetive. Thank you
