Type of Trip



  • Experience a day of stunning climbs in the Dolomite mountains.

  • Climb the mountainside with the presence of ancient legends.

  • View breathtaking views of surrounding mountains like the rock tower of Larsec.


Challenge yourself to a day tour of via ferratas and traverse the beautiful Dolomite mountains in northern Italy.

Visit the less crowded climbing areas as we ascent the surroundings of Bolzano during a 1-day trip. Bolzano is the capital and largest city of South Tyrol, as well as being ranked as having the best quality of life in Italy.

We’ll be able to witness the stunning rock tower of Larsec, a largely unknown chain of mountains that stand to the east of the Rosengarten.

We will climb the two main via ferratas delle Scalette and Catinaccio d’Antermoia. These belong to the Gruppo del Catinaccio (or the Rosengarten Group), which is a massif with a peculiarly pink shade due to the presence of the dolomite mineral.

Its colour is a basis for the legend of King Laurin, an ancient ruler of dwarves who lived among the mountains, and lived in an underground palace. The entrance to the crystal castle contained a great rose garden. If anyone dared to pluck even a single flower, their hand and foot would be chopped off.

Due to the level of difficulty being intermediate, potential climbers are expected to have previous experience of via ferratas, and are also required to have a good level of fitness. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place to climb the Dolomite mountains on a full day of via ferratas set among the stunning alpine landscape.

About the Guide


I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.

The trip was incredible!!! Etienne was an excellent guide. At all times during the hike and via ferrata he made 100% sure that we were comfortable and safe. He was pleasant and shared loads of local knowledge which made the trip all the more welcoming. He took photographs and gave us time to take in all the amazing views that the trip had to offer. He had all the gear that we required and leading up to the trip was easy to communicate with. We would highly recommend the trip and Etienne as a guide.
