Dolomite Mountains

1/2 Day

Jun - Oct




* Enjoy a via ferrata adventure on the Creste di Costabella.

* Discover a historical site in the Dolomites.

* Contemplate breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks.


Come with me to this via ferrata along the Creste di Costabella and discover a historical site in the Dolomites. We’ll follow the Bepi Zac route and learn about an important place used by soldiers during World War I.

First of all, we’ll take a lift from San Pellegrino Pass and reach an altitude of 2,300 meters. Then, we’ll hike for 40 minutes to the Selle Pass and continue the journey using our climbing equipment.

On the way, we’ll find hiking sections and cable routes that will cross the areas used by Italian and Austrian soldiers during World War I. After visiting a photo gallery about this historical period, we’ll concentrate on the descent and return to our starting point.

In addition, we’ll get to see stunning views of the surrounding peaks in the range, such as the Pala Group, the Rosengarten Group, the Sassolungo and the Marmolada.

As for the itinerary, consider that it can be modified according to the participant’s level and the weather conditions.

Although this via ferrata is easy and suitable for beginners, keep in mind that it’s mandatory to have a good level of fitness. The program has a duration of 6 hours and we’ll face an elevation gain of 450 meters.

So, would you like to take part in this via ferrata? Then all you have to do is send the request and book your place. I’ll be glad to lead you through this fantastic route in the Dolomites!

Looking for an activity in the snow? Then I also lead an easy snowshoeing program on the Mondeval, near Cortina. Check it out!

Mountain Guide

I was born in the plain in 1983, but as often happens to those who were born there, I have always loved the mountains. I was three years old when I wore my first skis, not knowing that this would become my strongest passion ... Skiing, walking, climbing: it is since I was a child that I go to the mountains, first with my parents and my grandfather and then with my friends.

The degree in forestry science was only the logical consequence of this passion, as well as the beautiful summers spent managing the refuge Capanna Punta Penia in Marmolada (the highest refuge in the Dolomites, on top of the highest mountain in the Dolomites!), which I call "the bus without wheels" and all over the Dolomites!
The last step (for now...) was to become a Mountain Guide, to let you experience what the mountain transmits to me!
… and to show you the famous " bus without wheels”

What people are saying about Giovanni



We had an amazing day with Giovanni! He was an extremely knowledgable & confident guide. We felt very secure with his leadership. We highly recommend his guiding services to anyone!



Giovanni is a wonderful guide, with perfect knowledge of the route and the technical aspects of the climb. Would highly recommend Giovanni as a guide for the Dolomites and elsewhere.



Giovanni was an exceptionally wonderful guide! Our family spent the day with him climbing in Cinque Torri. He was incredibly patient with our children, and was able to find routes that we all enjoyed climbing. We loved every minute of the day and would recommend this trip to any family interested in doing some sport climbing near Cortina/Cinque Torri.
