Highlights

  • 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.

Description

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

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

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.

Etienne was a fantastic guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We did a one day beginner level trip on the via ferrata. Etienne extremely knowledgeable of the history, geography, and culture of the area. I would highly recommend Etienne for anyone from novice beginners to advanced experts.

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.
