Ice climbing Dolomites

Ice climbing in the Dolomites is an exhilarating experience! Learning to do it right, in the company of an IFMGA certified mountain guide, is essential.

Dolomite Mountains

1 Day

Jan, Feb


First Time


The Dolomites are a famous mountain range in northern Italy. And they are certainly a first class destination for ice climbing! Join me for one or more days and get a taste of the ice. 

When winter arrives, it doesn’t only mean that snow is here and it’s time to ski. It’s also the magical time of the year when we can climb frozen waterfalls! This is a truly unique discipline. You will certainly love ice climbing if you already enjoy rock climbing. But it is not the same as climbing rocky walls. Ice climbing is an exhilarating experience, climbing an ephemeral wall that will be gone when temperatures rise.

I will choose the exact location based on the ice conditions at the time, as well as the weather forecast and your technical level. This program is suitable for beginners, but if you are already experienced don’t hesitate to ask me, as of course I can guide all levels.

The Dolomites are filled with beautiful and cosy small towns with B&B, hotels and apartment options. And the Italian cuisine will be the ultimate reward after an intense day on the ice!

Tempted to try ice climbing in the Dolomites? Then please book this trip and come see the frozen walls that the cold designs for us this winter! And you can check out my off-piste skiing program in the Dolomites, which is also adaptable to your time and level.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
