Join an experienced certified guide on an ice climbing expedition in the Italian Alps that includes exploring Goulottes in Sassolungo and Val di Fassa.


Alps, Dolomite Mountains

+1 Day

Jan - Mar




On this incredible trip that can stretch to a maximum of 2 days, you will have a chance to ice climb on some truly amazing peaks and valleys. The ice climbing options include Sassolungo (3,181m), also known as Langkofel, and the Val di Fassa. 

As a result of the variety of areas available on this trip, this adventure will depend on what you choose, and your skill level. Both of these places are unique and offer an equally unique experience.

For example, the Val di Fassa is a beautiful valley that offers views of gorgeous scenery and the Dolomite mountains. The ice climbing within the Val di Fassa is exceptional, and can be as difficult or as easy you want it to be. Meanwhile, Sassolungo is a more difficult peak, and as a result, offers more challenging ice climbing as well.

You will also have a chance to see and scale Goulottes. These are lines of ice that creep into the mountain crevices in the winter. They are beautiful to see in the afternoon as they reflect the sunlight. Some key areas where you can see and climb them include Goulotte Mistica, Goulotte Clean Gully, Goulotte Raggio di Sole, and the Goulotte Holzknecht.

All in all, this trip a wonderfully accessible adventure because it can cater to the expert and beginner alike. But keep in mind that whichever option you choose, I can't say enough how spectacular the views you will get to enjoy will be. I also think you will be interested to know that the areas I will take you through are quite empty because not many people go to the Goulottes. Thus giving you a peaceful and quiet ice climbing experience.

Please send me a request if you want me to guide you on an amazing ice climbing adventure. And let me take you through some of the best areas of the Italian Alps, from Sassolungo to the Val di Fassa.

I can also offer you a day of ice climbing in Sottoguda in the Dolomites.

Renato & Guides' team



Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

What people are saying about this trip



Had a great ice climbing trip with Renato, a real nice guy ,very helpful and encouraging.



My assigned guide was Robert Cecco, one of the funniest and awesome trips I've had in my life. The weather was not good in Val di Fassa (too warm and risky) so Robert suggested we moved to Colfosco, and everything was awesome there, more than 100 meters of ice climbing in each day, the guide was super friendly and easy to reach at all times he even helped me on solving a problem with my rental car. The adventure was intense physically and mentally like I was searching. Definitely more than I expected.
