If you are looking to venture yourself into via ferrata for the first time, the Mont Averau via ferrata in the spectacular Dolomite mountains is the perfect option for you.

A network of steel cables, bridges and ladders make it an ideal route for beginners with no previous climbing experience, as you won’t need any thecnical climbing skills. You will be able to safely reach the Averau summit (2649m) enjoying an exciting climbing adventure, at the heart of this impressive mountain range.

This route is even suitable for children from 10 years old, making it an ideal plan for families. The Averau via ferrata is definitely one of the best spots to try via ferrata for the first time.

I grew up in this area and I know this place like the back of my hand. During this tour I will show you my favorite spots in the area, including famous peaks as Mount Pelmo (3168m) and Mount Civetta (3220m).

The amazing Dolomite mountains are the birthplace of via ferrata. They were first built during World War I and soldiers used them to traverse the mountains.  The mountainside was the theatre of battle between Austria and Italy. You will see some fortifications and trenches that date back to WWI along our tour.

We will meet in a parking lot in Cortina d’Ampezzo and drive to the via ferrata’s starting point from the city. The tour will take us in total about 7 hours.

So if you want to join me on this via ferrata experience, just check the dates below and book your trip! Come join a group or bring your friends along for an exciting climbing experience in the heart of the Dolomites.

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.
