Type of Trip
The Dolomite Alps in northern Italy feature Via Ferrata itineraries for all levels. So both if you’ve never tried this activity before or if you are an expert climber, we’ll find the perfect itinerary for you to have a fun and exciting day!
Via Ferrata is a legacy of the First World War. During the conflict, soldiers built these first routes equipped with bridges, ladders and cables. The goal was to allow for easier and safer climbs. So Via Ferrata was actually born here, in the beautiful Dolomite Alps.
However, in addition to these historic routes, locals built other routes over the years. Using these routes, tourists are able to climb very steep and rocky peaks without having to be expert climbers.
The region offers a wide variety of different routes adapted to all climbing levels. For example, the Bepi Zach route is perfect for beginners, while the Rodella route is more adapted to intermediate climbers.
This activity is reserved for the summer months. However, if you are visiting during the winter, make sure you check out my Ice-climbing course for beginners. It is a great option to give your first steps on the ice!
Join me on this Via Ferrata course. We’ll find the perfect route for you to feel challenged and have fun. Contact me with any questions you may have!

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.
- The place to stay is Canazei in the Fassa valley, Dolomites
- We start every day from there. In the area we have many via ferrata for every level. For example Tridentina , Mesules, Roda de Vael, Masare… The best is to start with something easy and then we can decide what to do next.
- You need a lunch pack and maybe, there will be some lift fees, depending on what we do.
About the Guide
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.
