While it is considered the same activity, via ferrata is always different as it is completely dependent on its location. And on this day trip, you will be experiencing the Mesules via ferrata.

The Mesules via ferrata in the Sella Group massif is the oldest via ferrata in the entire Dolomties mountain range. First created in 1912, this via ferrata has thrilled visitors for over a century. And after just a few moments it is easy to see why. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

Experiencing the Mesules via ferrata is more than a trip, it is a journey. It is an exploration of Italy’s finest collection of peaks. Exposed for quite a bit of the day, this via ferrata is both harrowing and demanding. However, it is precisely because of the challenge it presents that the rewards are so rich.

We will begin at the Sella Pass (2,244m). Afterwards, we will make our way to the base of the tower.  From there we will take the via ferrata and scale over 250 meters of the Piz Ciavazes’ exposed wall. The next section of the journey will take you to right to the summit of Piz Selva (2,941m). From this vantage point, you will get to see a huge portion of not only the Sella Group, but also the Dolomites.

Are you looking for adventure? Are you looking for a thrilling experience in the peaks of Italy? Then the Mesules via ferrata is for you. Just send me a request, and let the fun begin.

I also lead an another exciting Dolomite excursion on the Roda di Vael via ferrata as well.



There are comfortable accommodation options near Mesules that I would be happy to recommend to you.

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.
