  • Contemplate the dazzling views of the surrounding peaks in the Dolomites.


If you’re an experienced climber looking for a challenge, you can’t miss this fantastic via ferrata in the heart of the Dolomites. Follow me on this 1-day adventure in the via ferrata delle Trincee and discover the Marmolada Group.

Situated on the Padon Ridge in the Marmolada massif, the via ferrata delle Trincee is a demanding route in an area that combines nature, geology, and history.

First, we’ll depart at 9 am. from the Arabba lifts and ascend to an altitude of 2,480 meters. We’ll find challenges from the beginning of the ferrata, where we’ll face a demanding vertical rock. Then, we’ll continue through steep and narrow sections on our way. Our efforts will be rewarded with the spectacular panoramic views of Marmolada Group and the Sella Group. We’ll be surrounded by volcanic rocks and get to see some of the remains of World War I on the route. Finally, we’ll take a path to Passo Padon and then head back to the lifts to go down.

Our program will finish at around 4 pm. During the via ferrata, we’ll face an elevation gain of 500 meters. As I mentioned before, this trip is difficult so it’s aimed at intermediate participants with a very good level of fitness.

So, does this program sound like something for you? Then don’t hesitate to send the request and book your place. It’s an amazing chance to discover the Dolomites!

I also lead a program to the via ferrata degli Alpini in the Dolomites. Check it out!

About the Guide


I was born in the plain in 1983, but as often happens to those who were born there, I have always loved the mountains. I was three years old when I wore my first skis, not knowing that this would become my strongest passion ... Skiing, walking, climbing: it is since I was a child that I go to the mountains, first with my parents and my grandfather and then with my friends.

The degree in forestry science was only the logical consequence of this passion, as well as the beautiful summers spent managing the refuge Capanna Punta Penia in Marmolada (the highest refuge in the Dolomites, on top of the highest mountain in the Dolomites!), which I call "the bus without wheels" and all over the Dolomites!
The last step (for now...) was to become a Mountain Guide, to let you experience what the mountain transmits to me!
… and to show you the famous " bus without wheels”

What People are Saying about Giovanni Orlando


Giovanni was an exceptionally wonderful guide! Our family spent the day with him climbing in Cinque Torri. He was incredibly patient with our children, and was able to find routes that we all enjoyed climbing. We loved every minute of the day and would recommend this trip to any family interested in doing some sport climbing near Cortina/Cinque Torri.
