On this unforgettable 3-day hiking adventure you will get a true taste of the Dolomites as you explore its queen, the Marmolada, which stands tall and prominent at 3,343 m (10,968 ft) on the border of Trentino and Veneto.

We will start and end the trek at Passo San Pellegrino. Over the course of our trek, we will spend the nights in typical mountain huts, famous for their views and food. We will also have the option to climb to the summit of Cima Obretta if we are up for it. The itinerary is designed to give you an enjoyable and fun experience of the mountains!

Keep in mind that we will trek around 5 hours with approximately 600m of elevation gain per day. Therefore, a good fitness level is required. Although there are no technical climbing skills required, this trek is demanding. Of course, you will have a certified, local guide to show you the way.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
