Reach the summit of Marmolada (3343m), the highest peak in the Dolomites, with an IFMGA-certified guide. A via ferrata will help you get to the top!



1 Day

Jun - Sep

Very high


* Climb to the summit via the west ridge and with the help of a via ferrata

* Stand on the highest peak in the Italian Dolomites

* Enjoy stunning views on the way up and from the summit


The Marmolada, or “Queen of the Dolomites” is the highest summit in this mountain range and the only one with a glacier. It is 3343 m high and lies at the frontier of Veneto and Trentino.

There are different routes to reach the summit. The west route has a via ferrata which makes it more accessible for those with less experience. However, it’s still a difficult adventure, so you must have a good physical condition!

Keep in mind that the ascent is done from Alba (1500m), so there's an elevation gain of 1800 meters to be done in one very long day, starting at 5 AM, so you have to be very fit. Both the ascent and descent are done through the via ferrata.

If you want to enjoy this trip at a less demanding pace, we can also do it in 1 day and a half, sleeping at Contrin refuge, or in 2 days, sleeping in Capanna Punta Penia, right below Marmolada summit!

On this program, we will head up the west ridge of Marmolada and enjoy one of the most beautiful via ferratas in all of the Alps. The views while going up and from the top are really breathtaking.

The best time to do it is from June to September.

Please contact us if you want to experience a great adventure in the highest mountain in the Dolomites. We will be happy to organize an unforgettable via ferrata adventure in Italy for you!

What people are saying about this trip



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 :)



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!
