Description

With a mountain range as beautiful as the Dolomites in Italy, it is the goal of anybody visiting it to see as much of it as possible. It is also a goal to get the best view of it possible as well. And on this day trip, you will have an excellent chance of achieving both goals at the same time. The reason for that is you will get to admire the Dolomites from the Oskar Schuster Via Ferrata.

Enjoying the Oskar Schuster via ferrata, like all via ferratas, is a thrilling experience. It is exciting, not just for the spectacular views you will get, but also for the physical experience as well.

The trip will begin at the parking lot at the bottom of the Sassolungo gondola lift. From there, we can either take the gondola, or walk to the Toni Demetz Hut on the Langkofel pass. From there, we will make our way down to the Langkofel hut. After that we will walk to the Oskar Schuster via ferrata.

Regarding the via ferrata itself, it consists of 70% steel cable, a short ladder, some iron bars, and 30% scrambling. For some people that may sound intimidating. However, let me assure you that this specific via ferrata is quite easy. Thus making it a perfect adventure for beginners who are looking for some excitement, as well as a great view of the Dolomites!

So if you want to spend a day in the Dolomites in a way you might have never tried before, allow me to suggest the Oskar Schuster via ferrata. It is great fun, and exciting to boot. So if that sounds like something you would be interested in, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

I can also guide you on this 1 day via ferrata at the Marmolada in the Dolomites as well.

About the guide

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.
