Close to the Italian town of Cortina d'Ampezzo, Via ferrata Punta Anna is a great way to enjoy the Dolomites!

Punta Anna (2731 m) is an impressive pillar which belongs to the Tofane mountain group.

Our starting point for this trip can be Pomedes Hut (cable car) or Dibona Hut (by car). One way or another, we'll reach the via ferrata in half an hour and climb along a beautiful ridge. Then, we'll reach Giussani Hut for a rest and finally go back to the Dibona Hut.

This via ferrata is located in a stunning scenery, so we'll enjoy amazing views of the Cortina Valley, Cinque Torri and Antelao

Please contact me if you want to challenge yourself in via ferrata Punta Anna! I'll be glad to be your guide in this wonderful section of the Dolomites.

However, if you are looking for other via ferrata trips in this area, you may want to take a look at this via ferrata in Marmolada, the highest mountain of the Dolomites or this Via ferrata del Formenton, in Cortina.

I'll bring you the via ferrata equipment (included in the price):

Where and when will we meet to start the Punta Anna via ferrata tour?

We'll meet around 8.30 am. The exact time will be confirmed one or two days before the tour based on the weather forecast.
The meeting point is at the Dibona hut (https://goo.gl/maps/qNGieDYe7EoisipQ7) which you can reach by car. It takes around 25 min from Cortina.

How many people maximum do you accept for this tour?

For safety reason, I usually take maximum 4 to 5 people with me. If you come with a larger group, I'll ask a colleague of mine to join us.

How experienced do we need to be to climb the via ferrata of Punta Anna?

The most important is to be fit (be able to do a physical effort for several hours) and not to have fear of heights. If you have rock climbing experience, it's even better.

How long does the tour take?

The Punta Anna via ferrata adventure takes around 5 hours.
- 1 to 1.30 hours to hike to the start of the via ferrata
- 2 to 3 hours to do the via ferrata
- 1 to 1.30 hours to hike down

What other via ferrata in the area would you recommend?

Here are some other very nice ferrata in the area: Punta Fiames (a bit easier, https://www.explore-share.com/trip/punta-fiames-via-ferrata-dolomites/), Lipella (a bit longer, https://www.explore-share.com/trip/1-day-via-ferrata-giovanni-lipella-tofana-di-rozes-near-cortina/), Tomaselli (more challenging, https://www.explore-share.com/trip/guided-tomaselli-via-ferrata-passo-falzarego/) and Ferrata col dei bos (easier).
If you wish, we could do a multi-day via ferrata tour together, combining a few of them.

When is the best time of the year to do the Punta Anna via ferrata?

The months of June, July, August and September are usually the best months to do via ferrata in the Dolomites. May and October could work as well.

How soon should I book this tour with you?

You should book as soon as you can. The summer months are really busy in the Dolomites. I get fully booked very quickly.

I'm alone, can I join a group?

I mostly guide PRIVATE via ferrata and climbing tours during the summer. Mixing together people that don't know each other is a bit complicated and the experience is not always the best for the participants.

Can children make it?

Children can come if they can manage to do a physical effort for several hours and if they don't have fear of heights. I have guided 8 years old children in the past.

Mountain Guide

I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients.

I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering.

Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal. I work with other mountain guides in the Veneto area, such as Filippo, Massimo, and my brother Daniele. If I am unavailable on the date you are interested in coming climbing, skiing, or engaging in other activities with me, I can connect you with one of them.

What people are saying about this trip



Great trip! Enrico planned it perfectly and had a ton of info about the area. Highly recommend!



Enrico was great, fantastic hike/climb & views. I would recomend this trip.



Enrico guided my family of 4 including 2 boys age 14 and 17 to do the Via Ferrata on Punta Anna. It was a fantastic day. First there was a vigorous walk up from Rifugio Dibona to the start of the Via Ferrata. We are a active family who hikes often but at the higher altitude, we still huffed a bit with the hike. But Enrico was patient and gave us whatever opportunities to take pictures and rest as we needed. During that hike, Enrico conversed with my boys to get a sense of how comfortable they may be with heights and climbing. Once the Via Ferrata started, it was just amazing. Enrico gave us clear instructions about how to do the Ferrata safely and kept an eye on us make sure that we were comfortable and having fun. He took amazing pictures of our family during the climb so that we did not have to fumble with our cameras and risk dropping it. That really allows me to enjoy the moment because it is indescribably beautiful and breathtaking. He then send us the pictures the next day and they were great and better than what I could have done. At the tricky parts of the climb, he offered to pull us up by rope if we were uncomfortable but we were all able to do it on our own. However, for others who may be unsure, it may be helpful to know that he can assist you in this way. Then on the way down, he showed us how to do a gravel run which we have never done and it was enormously fun! We cannot recommend Enrico enough as a guide for Via Ferrata, rock climbing , or skiing tour. He even gave us recommendations for future tours that we hope to do. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy.



Loved the trip!



Enrico è stato simpaticissimo e paziente con noi che eravamo un gruppo di principianti. Consiglio Punta Anna come prima esperienza di via ferrata ma anche per chi è più abituato penso sia un must. Consigliatissimo!!
