Whether you are taking your first steps into via ferrata climbing or you are a semi-pro, these tours are perfect for you! You will enjoy a fun and dynamic climbing experience in a safe and scenic environment, while at the same time learn or refresh the basic via ferrata knowledge and skills for your future climbing adventures.

I offer 2-day trips in different locations within the Italian Alps. We usually climb selected routes around:

  • Lake Como (198m), the third largest lake in Italy, located in the Lombardy region.
  • The Rhaetian Railway, a mountain railroad network that connects Italy to Switzerland, within the Bernina Range (4,049m), one of the highest in the Alps.
  • The Dolomites Range (3,343m), part of the Southern Limestone Alps.

While the origins of via ferrata date from the nineteenth century, many of these routes were built during World War I to help troops move across the area. Today these offer the perfect ground for climbing enthusiasts of all levels.

These tours begin with a theory session focusing on analysis of the environment, climbing techniques, and safety management, followed by a field practice along the ferrata.

These trips are open to everyone. They are a great activity to share with friends and family, including children. However, kids must be at least 7 years old to be able to join and must be always accompanied by an adult.

Don’t miss this fun climbing outing in the beautiful Italian Alps! Book your tour now!

If you are looking for other exciting adventures in the area, I also lead canyoning day trips in Val Bodengo and Valmalenco.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
