    In this 5-day hiking trip, we’ll traverse the most beautiful part of Alta Via 1 (Av1). This is a very popular long distance trail in the Dolomites, also known as High Route.

    Our starting point will be Alleghe, an Italian village in the province of Belluno. From there, we’ll take a lift to Pian di Pezze hut and take our first via ferrata.

    Each day we’ll be taking different secured climbing routes, enjoying the wonderful views of the Dolomites peaks and valleys. Besides, we’ll reach the summit of Mt Civetta (3220 m), one of the highest peaks of this mountain range. During the night, we’ll stay in mountain huts.

    You can have a look at the whole itinerary below this description.

    This programme is ideal for beginners. However, it’s important to be in a good shape as well as having some previous experience in via ferrata. If that’s not exactly your case, I can adapt the length and level of the trip according to your skills.

    Please, contact me if you want to join this 5-day trip in the Dolomites. I’ll be happy to guide you in this area I know so well.

    In case you’re looking for shorter trips, you can check some of my 1-day programmes like Via ferrata del Formenton, in Cortina, or a via ferrata guided trip in Val Di Fassa.

    About the Guide


    I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients. I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering. Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal.

    Enrico was a terrific guide - super friendly, very knowledgable & a fun guy. He\'s also a good photographer to help capture some pics when you\'re up on the via ferrata! Would recommend him to anyone looking for a guide in the area.

    Ruth Marit Ulstein
    As a group of 4 we went on a via ferrata adventure with Enrico and had an amazing time. Communication with Enrico was straightforward and he picked the perfect route: challenging but not too hard and consequently everybody in the group had a great time despite different levels of experience. It\'s very clear that Enrico is extremely competent and has a lot of experience. We always felt completely safe with him and he was very encouraging and fun to talk to. Looking forward to coming back. Highly recommended!
