Val di Fassa, Dolomites, Guided Ice Climbing
fontanazzo 4

Come and enjoy a day of Val di Fassa ice climbing in the beautiful Dolomite mountains of the Italian Alps with an experienced certified guide.


Dolomite Mountains, Alps

+1 Day

Jan - Mar




The Dolomite mountains are a beautiful range within the Alps of Italy. And the Val di Fassa area within them is equally stunning. On this trip, you will have the chance to go ice climbing on some of its amazing frozen waterfalls.

Located in the Northeast tip of Trentino, the Val di Fassa is a painting come to life. The peaceful, still surroundings contrast perfectly with the excitement of ice climbing.  And when you combine those feelings with incredible ice falls like Fontanazzo and Rio Pelous you can't go wrong.

The criteria for participation revolves around your own abilities. However, because there is such a wide variety of ice falls to climb, I can find something to suit you, whether an easy ice cliff for beginners or a multi-pitch icefall for experts.

So come and enjoy a full day of amazing ice climbing in the serene Val di Fassa. It would be my pleasure to guide you to the top of any one of the petrified waterfalls in the region. Please send me a request to book this trip if you are interested.

And if you would like to enjoy the Val di Fassa in the summer season, I can also guide you on this rock climbing expedition.

Renato & Guides' team



Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Patrick & Walter (German speaking), Paolo, Matteo and Davide.

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 Renato & Guides' team



The trip was superb. We all enjoyed the day a lot. The scenery is amazing and this is the best way to visit Tri Cime de Lavaredo. We had 2 great guides Patrick and Carlos who were very professional and caring. We definitely recommend this one-day trip.



We had a great trip with our guide Paolo. While we had originally planned to do the Monte Paterno via ferrata, Paolo advised that there was some snow and ice on the route that made it impassable. He discussed with other guides over the course of the week before our trip and kept us updated, but in the end we had to opt for another route. Paolo took our experience level and ambitions into account and selected a great alternative for us. We loved it! He provided good equipment, good leadership throughout the day and gave us some insights into the area and local wildlife, answering any questions we had. I would have no hesitation in going on another trip with Paolo.



Our guide Robert was fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly and made the trip really enjoyable whilst being a good challenging climb! Thank you!



Robert Cecco, our guide, was very attentive, caring, and knowledable . He assisted our family at every step of via ferrata and made sure we had a great trip! Thank you, Robert!



Great experience with Renato
