Bernd, IFMGA/IVBV certified mountain guide, will take you on this exciting 4-day ice climbing program in Val Pusteria located in the Italian Dolomites!

Dolomite Mountains

4 Days

Jan, Feb, Dec




From short training exercises to several hundred meter long multi-pitch routes, this Val Pusteria 4-day ice climbing program is the perfect opportunity for you to improve your techniques as well as to sharpen your confidence!

I will organize this 4-day ice climbing program in the Italian Dolomites to suit each participant’s needs and desires. Thanks to the excellent ice conditions this place offers, climbers will be amazed to discover extremely varied climbing opportunities.

First, I’ll start by refreshing some basic knowledge and checking each participant’s experience. Then, I’ll continue by focusing on each climber’s individual improvement. Finally, during our last two days, I’ll guide you through larger ice falls where you will put into practice everything you have learned.

During the course, you´ll learn about safety on the ice and have the chance to improve your personal ice climbing skills. Also, you will practice top-roping and learn useful tactics for lead climbing. To participate in this program you will need some prior ice climbing experience. Also, you will need a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there every step of the way to make sure all climbers acquire and are able to apply the newly learned techniques.

Ready to explore the spectacular ice falls of Val Pusteria? Then send your request! I will make sure to accommodate to your wishes and needs.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/IVBV Certified mountain, ski and canyoning guide, member of DAV and VDBS mountaineering and sport climbing teaching and training team. I’ve been part of the VDBS team for the formation and training of German mountain guides for 20 years.

I started climbing at the age of 17. Since 1987 I am certified mountain guide and a passion has become a profession. I live in Scharnitz / Tyrol and I am leader of the moutaineering school Alpenwelt Karwendel in Mittenwald.
Ice climbing in norway, skitouring in morocco, rock climbing in cuba or high mountains in the himalaya - I like it to explore new areas around the world. I led a DAV training expedition for talented young mountaineers in the Tian Shan mountain range with climbing Khan Tengri and did several expeditions to the karakorum mountains and the himalayas.

As a full-time mountain guide, I feel at home in the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains as well as in the mountains and climbing areas worldwide. I am happy to accompany you as a guide to your desired goal!

Bernd is a great teacher and guide. My husband and I are so glad that we had him as first timers for ice climbing. Aside from being knowledgeable, he is a very kind, warm and genuine person.



The guide Bernd was terrific - very knowledgable, experienced and patient with our group of beginners. Even when the weather turned to the worse, he kept finding ways to make it enjoyable, safe and interesting for all of us. We had a great time. Communication with him prior to the trip was also very clear and easy. Highly recommended!



Bernd is an extremely skilled mountain guide and I felt very safe on my climb with him. I will most surely book future trips with him!



Bernd is extremely easy going and all round nice chap. He is also a very competent guide.



Bernd was very professional and experienced. Also flexible which helped as my luggade was delayed so we postponed our climb one day. Our climbs were everything i hoped for so i highly recommend.
