    Every via ferrata is unique. and the Roda di Vael via ferrata is no different. Located in the Rosengarten group, within the beautiful Dolomites of Italy, this via ferrata is exciting, and offers some truly spectacular views of the surrounding peaks as well.

    High in the Dolomites, the views a person can enjoy are breathtaking. There is just so much to see, including far reaching valleys along with the towns below. And on this full day adventure you will have the added bonus of experiencing the thrill of walking right along the walls of the very peaks you will be admiring.

    We will begin the trip at the Paolina chairlift. From there we will walk along a trail until we reach the via ferrata. For the via ferrata itself, you will have the chance to walk along the ridges, while gazing at the beautiful mountains resting all around you.

    The Roda di Vael via ferrata is made of 100 percent steel cable. Thus making it very safe and secure. As a result, this trip can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Hence making it a great family experience. I will also see to it that you are properly guided, and are using the proper equipment.

    For anybody that loves mountains, but wants to see them in a unique way, I always recommend trying a via ferrata. And within the Rosengarten group in the Dolomites, the Roda di Vael is definitely one of the best, as well as one of the most accessible. So if you want to give it a try, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

    There is also another great via ferrata in the Dolomites I can take you too, the Oskar Schuster.

    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.

    What People are Saying


    Etienne was an excellent tour guide of for our first Via Ferrata in the Dolomites. We had done one before (Telluride) but this was a very different experience. We felt safe and challenged the whole way. Etienne is very knowledgable of the terrain, valley, and history of the area. He was prepared and allowed us to gain confidence throughout the day. If you want to make the jump form hiking (trekking) to something more, definitely go for the via ferrata in the Dolomites and use Etienne Bernard!

    Etienne was a fantastic tour guide and I highly recommend this trip. He goes above and beyond to help you enjoy the Dolomites, offering knowledge and advice to make the most of your time in the Region. The tour is well timed going up, across, lunch and down so you never get tired of it. The views on this walk are amazing! Via Ferrata is a great next step when you want a bit more than a mountain walk. Also great to access the area out of ski season in summer rather than snow. Would highly recommend!
