Description

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.

An absolutely amazing time spent with Ivan and Filipo! Super experts, really fun to be with, and good guys all around. The trip was 100% memorable, well organised, safe, but challenged my kids, while building their confidence in a breathtaking setting. A HUUUGE thanks!

We had a fantastic Bodenga 2 tour. It was so much fun that we right away wanted to do it again, although, as outstanding tours usually are, it was a little exhausting - but in a good way! I have to restrain myself with praise for Ivan and Philippe; they are a truly professional, very very experienced and great fun team to be around. At no point, any of us felt unsafe, even we couldn’t always imagine what was coming next. We will definitely look into Ivan’s other tours and hope to book again soon !
