Highlights

 
     

    At the heart of the Dolomites, between the villages of Sottoguda and Malga Ciapela, Serrai di Sottoguda is the ideal destination in Italy for ice climbing. 

    Serrai di Sottoguda is an amazing canyon at the base of the Marmolada, with huge rock walls. During winter, the gorge is covered by 5 kilometers of frozen waterfalls. This turns it into a paradise for ice climbers.

    One of the highlights of this place is it has a wide variety of routes for every levels of difficulty. As a matter of fact, it’s suitable for those having their firsts experiences in ice climbing and also for the ones looking for more extreme and challenging routes.

    In this trip, we are going to practice single pitch to multi-pitch ice climbing, reaching a 200 m height. At the same time, we will have the opportunity of enjoying a beautiful scenery.

    The best period to visit Serrai di Sottoguda starts in December, when the icefalls start to form. It lasts until the end of March.

    Please contact me if you are interested in this ice climbing adventure. I an IFMGA mountain guide based in the Dolomites, and will be glad to show you my favorite places in Serrai di Sottoguda.

    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.

    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!

    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
