Marmolada, the Queen of the Dolomites, was one of the first via ferrata sites in this mountain range. I invite you to climb it through its gentle and beautiful west ridge. Although the itinerary does not present any particular technical difficulty, the glacial environment, the high altitude and the length of the climbing route make it a challenging adventure!

Our starting point will be preferably in Val di Fassa so we can meet up there the day before and check the necessary equipment.

I can also suggest some interesting lodging in the area such as the Oswald Hotel. There are many other nearby accommodations in Canazei di Fassa (Cristallo Hotel or the Gran Paradise Hotel). In Campitello di Fassa you can even stay in comfortable apartments.

This one day experience is a really complete program since we won’t only enjoy a via ferrata trip. We’ll start with a walk, going to the via ferrata and finally have some glacier action! What’s more exciting is that you’ll be also teleported back to the First World War since that fighting took place right here.

I am happy to offer this full mountaineering and historical package in Marmolada. It’ll be a big pleasure for me if you join me. Send your request to book the trip!

And if you’d like to try a rock climbing adventure in the Dolomites, please check out this full day program in Val di Fassa.

Meeting point

In val di Fassa to then drive to Campitello di Fassa (Trentino,Italy) or right at the Fedaia Pass.



About the guide

guide profile img

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.
