Do you want to step into rock climbing in a safe manner? Then let me take you to Salewa Cube, a premium gym in Bolzano, for an exciting indoor climbing course!

Bolzano, in South Tyrol, northern Italy, lies on a scenic valley at the foot of the Dolomites. It offers many outdoor adventure options, as well as important archaeological and architectonic attractions. Furthermore, in this medieval city we can find an awesome gym where you can learn the basics of rock climbing!

Opened in 2011, Salewa Cube is the biggest indoor climbing gym in Italy. It offers a 2,000 m2 area with about 180 routes for all levels. This futuristic glass palace, with walls ranging between 13 and 18 meters, is perfect to make the transition from indoor to outdoor spots. We will work on gear usage, security and technical maneuvers!

This course is suitable for everyone, you don’t need any prior climbing experience!

So, if you want to try the fabulous walls of Salewa Club, please get in touch with me. An exciting rock climbing taster course awaits!

I also offer many outdoor rock climbing outings. Check out, for example, my Val di Fassa and my Sella Towers programs.

About the Guide


I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.

What People are Saying about Etienne Bernard


This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!

I absolutely loved this tour with Renato, he is amazing! Can\'t believe he\'s been hiking and climbing Dolomites for 50 years. He was so fit, kind, funny, informative and a real pleasure to be around. Definitely will recommend this to all of our friends
