Ice climbing journey with a guide in Sappada, a reference point for those who want to improve their skills or start practicing this exciting sport.
If you want to get started in the exciting world of ice climbing, or you are looking to improve your skills, this journey in Sappada ice falls is just for you.
Sappada is a small village in the province of Belluno, in Northern Italy. It stands in the border between Italy and Austria, and is part of the Dolomites.
It’s a beautiful alpine valley of green hills, coniferous forests, waterfalls and lagoons.
Mount Peralba (2694 m), Pic Cjadenis (2490 m) and Mount Lastroni (2450 m), are among the highest peaks in the area.
Sappada is a reference point for ice climbers, as it offers a wide variety of ice falls. In fact, it has three areas with several routes from road-side single pitches, to 5-6 pitch routes high up in the mountains.
I strongly recommend this place for those who want to start ice climbing activity, as it has easy multi-pitch routes until 200 m. Nevertheless, we can design personalized programes for all levels, according to your wishes and expectations.
During this trip, you will use a basic ice climbing equipment, like harness, helmet, crampons and ice axes. In fact, you can rent everything there.
Please contact me if you want more information about this climbing trip in Sapadda. It will be a pleasure for me to share this amazing experience with you!
You will need ice climbing equipment (harness, helmet, crampons, ice axes). You can rent these for around 10 EUR per day. You will also need a car to reach the climbing spots (but no lift passes or train tickets will be necessary).
You may choose between the villages of Caprile, Alleghe or Malga Ciapela.
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 extremely knowledgeable of the area and was able to put us in great snow despite the lack of snowfall over the past few weeks. Wonderful day!
Wonderful experience! Felt safe, had a lot of fun and will definitely be back to do more ice climbing. Thank you!

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.

Our guide was Daniele. He was helpful, and we felt safe with him. He had good knowledge about the area, and made the via ferrata a truly fun experience
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!
Enrico and the staff at explore share were extremely nice to work with. To our dismay, the weather didn’t cooperate and we were unable to do our hike. They were very quick in processing our refund. Hopefully we can try again in the future and will definitely consider Enrico and explore share again.
The tour was amazing, the place is absolutely beautiful and Enrico was a great guide! The snow conditions were not the best (one cannot control the weather!) but Enrico guided us well through it and gave a lot of important tips on how to skin up on varying conditions, and always alerted of of what to expect ahead. He was very patient with our relatively slow pace and we still managed to do a lot in the day we had! I can definetly recomend this tour for those who are starting in splitboarding/skitouring - the right level of challenge without beeing too hard! And Enrico is a great guide, professional, patient and also a fun person to be around and chat! I hope to make another tour or maybe climb with him on the next time I\'m in the Dolomites!

Enrico was extremely accommodating to our specific plans and provided a safe yet challenging experience. Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend Enrico.
This tour was unanimously my family\'s favorite part of our trip. The view from the top is the most stunning 360 view I\'ve ever seen. Enrico, our guide, was clear, calm and engaging. We had a person who is terrified of heights, and Enrico did an excellent job of balancing patient encouragement with determined push. For those more fearless who are experienced hikers and climbers, this particular via ferrata may be a bit underwhelming. A few of us wanted more of a challenge. Overall, fantastic.
We had a great experience with Mr.Enrico Geremia for our via ferrata trip up Marmolada. Enrico was a friendly guide and did not compromise with any of the safety equipment. We felt secure all the while with Enrico. We would certainly recommend our friends who have plans to hike the Dolomites in the future to use this platform :)
Loved the trip!

Enrico guided my family of 4 including 2 boys age 14 and 17 to do the Via Ferrata on Punta Anna. It was a fantastic day. First there was a vigorous walk up from Rifugio Dibona to the start of the Via Ferrata. We are a active family who hikes often but at the higher altitude, we still huffed a bit with the hike. But Enrico was patient and gave us whatever opportunities to take pictures and rest as we needed. During that hike, Enrico conversed with my boys to get a sense of how comfortable they may be with heights and climbing. Once the Via Ferrata started, it was just amazing. Enrico gave us clear instructions about how to do the Ferrata safely and kept an eye on us make sure that we were comfortable and having fun. He took amazing pictures of our family during the climb so that we did not have to fumble with our cameras and risk dropping it. That really allows me to enjoy the moment because it is indescribably beautiful and breathtaking. He then send us the pictures the next day and they were great and better than what I could have done. At the tricky parts of the climb, he offered to pull us up by rope if we were uncomfortable but we were all able to do it on our own. However, for others who may be unsure, it may be helpful to know that he can assist you in this way. Then on the way down, he showed us how to do a gravel run which we have never done and it was enormously fun! We cannot recommend Enrico enough as a guide for Via Ferrata, rock climbing , or skiing tour. He even gave us recommendations for future tours that we hope to do. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy.
Had an amazing time with Enrico and Mauro. The views are just incredible and it was great to do something a bit different from just walking/hiking. They provided all the equipment and knew exactly where we were going and even took photos for us along the way which made the whole experience great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to via ferrata in the Dolomites!
Enrico treated us to a fantastic and thrilling day exploring the wonders of the Dolomites - his knowledge and tips made for an unforgettable day
Enrico took us for a fantastic tour with plenty of tips and masses of local knowledge to help us make the most of our day out. Definitely recommended.
If I could give Enrico more that five stars, I would! He is a great guide and patient teacher. He tailored instruction to my level and the goals that I had for the trip. He gave me specific drills to practice the foot work and ice tool placement that I needed to work on. He was encouraging and pushed me without making me uncomfortable or scared. He is a great climber with a lot of knowledge but he makes it easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks for the great trip!
Had a great day with Enrico. We were a group of 2 snowboarders and a skier. Enrico was very patient with us. Will return again.
Great trip! Enrico planned it perfectly and had a ton of info about the area. Highly recommend!
Enrico is a great guide!
Enrico was a great guide. He gave us some history of the mountain while climbing and took photos for us while hiking up to Punta Penia. Very professional and helpful guide!
He was really really fantastic and our trip was amazing! It was myself, my friend and our two sons and Enrico challenged us all and was really patient and great with our boys. We had 5 days of hiking and via ferrata in an incredibly beautiful uncrowded part of the Dolomites. I felt 100% comfortable with Enrico that he made sure our kids were safe in every situation. We all had an unforgettable experience and want to come back for more :). I keep telling people how great explore share is!
I arranged a last minute Ice climbing adventure through Explore-Share who were very accommodating to my request. My guide was Enrico, a very professional and experienced IFMGA mountain guide. It was an excellent experience to climb in Sottoguda, and I have recommended this to my friends. Enrico personalised the experience to my skill set and fitness levels, ensuring that I felt safe at all times. He clearly explained the techniques and movements required to enjoy the climbing. Can\'t recommend these guys enough! Highlight of my trip to the Dolomites. Matt. Australia
