Via Ferrata in Cortina D’Ampezzo

Conquer the rocky walls of Cortina in the heart of the Dolomites and home to the via ferrata

The classic climbs of via ferratas, with its gruesome origins in the Dolomite Mountains in World War I, are scattered across the region. With fixed cables, ladders and steps fused to the limestone rocks, via ferratas enable smoother ascents for those with little or no technical climbing skills. And with a great supply of rocky walls, there are options for all levels, from easier routes in Monte Paterno to more demanding routes in Punta Anna. Visit between May and October for prime climbing conditions.

Guide Benny served us very well. (We never met Renato. ) she kept us safe and gave us all the adventure we could handle. She also gave us a a lift to our Rifugio at day’s end—beyond the call of duty. We highly recommend her.

Via ferrata tour in the Dolomites (3 days)

Our guide was Walter Del Frè and we would like use his name in our review. He was very kind, patient and knowledgeable about the mountains and even the plants. We would recommend him to anyone! HOWEVER the same cannot be said about the Explore-Share company. Their communication was not personal (auto replies most of the time) and communicating via WhatsApp felt unprofessional to me. The 2 major issues were a) at no stage were we issued with a formal receipt (even though we asked for one) and b) we kept getting messages to pay after we had done so. In both cases we wer told not to worry. Well, I did, and it eas an extremely stressful experience.

1-day Via Ferrata in the Dolomites – Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

1-day via ferrata on Punta Anna, near Cortina d’Ampezzo

Our actual guide -benny was great and easy to communicate with. Renato Bernard however did not handle this company well. Complete disservice. The weather was 90% thunderstorms on the day we were supposed to go, our hotel highly discouraged it (as he used to be a guide) so we had asked for a different date. He gave us another guides number we arranged to go on Saturday instead with him due to the other guide not being available. Then last minute (after the ferrata trek was supposed to start) I get an email from Renato stating that we had to go with our original guide and because she would cancel /didn’t have any other dates available we would lose our money. He then did not return any further emails or correspondence from us. Just left us in the dirt. EVEN WHEN THERE WAS A GUIDE readily available to take us the next day under better weather conditions. My recommendation would be to book last minute. Because this company does not handle weather related incidents/safety/ rescheduling well. Would not try this company again or recommend it to others because of this. Especially with a company the relies so heavily on the weather. You think they’d have a better system in place. Because of this we sacrificed a 6hr via ferrata for a 3 hr..

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The via Ferrata was great, the view was stunning and our guide, Benny, was wonderful. She oriented us of what’s coming, knowledgeable about the area, and making sure we’re comfortable with the pace. She helped us also with our accommodation to and from Figo di Fassa to the foot of the chairlift which we really appreciated her for that. About the via ferrata, make sure you wear mountain shoes.

We were in contact with Renato before we booked the vacation. He was not polite when we asked about the cost and informations about the accomodations of our trip in the mountains. BUT Renato couldn’t be our guide at the and, so we had Bruno as our guide. Bruno was the best guide ever for our vacation! He was very polite, funny and kind. Thanks to him we had an amazing vacation!!

1-day Via Ferrata in the Dolomites – Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.

In addition to being a lovely person I felt safe the entire time and she was appropriately cautious as you would want anyone to be with your children. Highly highly recommended!!

Via ferrata tour in the Dolomites (3 days)

Fantastic 3-day via-ferrata adventure at the Dolomites having Étienne as our 5* guide. Beautiful views, excellent weather and great company. Physical effort and the difficulty of the via-ferrata were challenging but adequate to our level, the mountain refuges were comfortable and the food was good. Overall, highly recommended to clear your mind of the hustle and bustle of the daily rotine.

Explore share were highly responsive and found me a guide very last minute who was excellent. My only comment would be that due to the speed at which we completed the route, the day ended early afternoon so it would have been nice to fill out the rest of the time - it would therefore be helpful to clarify what is included in the price (e.g. am I paying for time such as a full day, or the route etc).

Our guide Bruno was a very experienced mountaineer who made us feel safe throughout the via ferrata. The via feratta Punta Anna itself is an amazing experience and I am so glad we did it. The climb can be quite challenging at times with some climbing technique needed, but even my boyfriend who has vertigo managed to do it. It is absolutely stunning, with many good footholds and handholds so we could rest when needed. Explore-share was also really good at communicating with us before the trip to update us of our change of guides etc.

Loved Etienne!! We would definitely be back to have another adventure. He was very accommodating to our capabilities and the change in weather. He explained techniques to hike better and more efficiently that we plan to use in the future. He also quickly suggested multiple itineraries because it was raining on our first day and would have made the Via Ferratas a bit dangerous. Overall, having him on the team made it so much more fun! Highly recommended!

Booked 3 days via Ferrata tour with guide Etienne through Explorer-Share. The booking process was easy, online customer service was helpful in checking availabilities and got me connected with the right guide. During the planning phase, Etienne was helpful and responsive. Based on our experiences, he recommend 3 day tour in the Garden of Roses region, and made all lodging arrangement beforehand. The trip was fantastic, definitely the highlight of our trip for both me and my 2 boys (age 9 and 11). Etienne was knowledgeable, and made all the right calls to helps us staying dry when weather turned worse. He communicated extremely well with my young boys, built their confidence and trust, and challenged them the same time. I would recommend Etienne to all my friends and hopefully we can have his services again in our future trips. Thank you

We had a great day out with Marika and were spoilt with amazing views and a great climb up Monte Averau. We hiked up to the via ferrata from Cinque Torri instead of getting the chairlift and were treated with incredible views of cloud inversions on the mountains. The via ferrata itself is quite short, so great for beginners (more time hiking than on the via ferrata) but the views from the top were sensational!

Etienne made the day absolutely amazing for the 3 of us. His communication before hand regarding meeting place and time was excellent. After a brief discussion regarding our previous experience we decided on a medium category Via Ferrata route. This was challenging for us and was exactly what we wanted. Etienne gave us great instruction both at the foot of the climb and once on it with great tips and encouragement . He also pointed out places of interest to us. He really made us feel secure and confident to take on the challenge and we would highly recommend Etienne for anyone looking to try their hand at Via Ferrata.

1-day Guided Via Ferrata in Monte Paterno in the Dolomites

Etienne guided us on a special via Ferrata that was tailored to our needs based on our location in the Dolomites and our experience as beginners. He was very patient and helped us understand how to use the equipment and the best ways to climb the Via Ferrata. It was not too difficult, but definitely not for those who are less fit or afraid of heights. When we reached the top we had a good lunch and he explained he history of the area and of the Ladin culture. He even told us a local folklore. After we were done we decided to stay on the mountain and hike more. Etienne gave us a great recommendation for a trail that brought us to an unforgettable mountain pasture. Overall an experience of a lifetime!

Etienne was supportive and helpful throughout and led us to the top of Punta Anna. It was a little more challenging than we expected but he was patient and took extra time and care to help us reach the peak. The views were totally worth it, and the expeience is something we talk about as a family that was amazing. I would recommend Etienne to everyone!

It's very clear that Enrico is extremely competent and has a lot of experience. We always felt completely safe with him and he was very encouraging and fun to talk to. Looking forward to coming back.

Guided Via ferrata in Monte Paterno (2744 mt)

This tour was unanimously my family's favorite part of our trip. The view from the top is the most stunning 360 view I've ever seen. Enrico, our guide, was clear, calm and engaging. We had a person who is terrified of heights, and Enrico did an excellent job of balancing patient encouragement with determined push. For those more fearless who are experienced hikers and climbers, this particular via ferrata may be a bit underwhelming. A few of us wanted more of a challenge. Overall, fantastic.

I never though we could climb such a difficult Via Ferrata like Cesco Tomaselli on the second day, but with his experience, teachings and the confidence transmitted we were able to climb that Monster! And what an amazing adventure it was! Never felt so alive in my life! Etienne can help and guide during the ascend but at the same time it seems like we are climbing a rock wall with a friend! Super friendly and with a vast knowledge of the dolomites area. He even took my backpack when I felt exhausted due to the heat. Thank you very much for the 2 days and for sure next year we'll be there for more adventures! João Carvalhosa

Etienne was fantastic and we would definitely work with him again. He has a nice, pleasant personality, so we were happy to spend the day with him. He also has a sense of expertise and trustworthiness that makes you feel more comfortable and confident in your activity. We ended up doing 2 little ferratas instead of Punta Anna, which was a good decision. We are novices and were concerned about the inclement weather during our trip. The day before our climb we had severe thunderstorms that made us both very nervous. Etienne met up with us the night before and discussed alternative plans. Being about to meet him face to face and discuss our desires and concerns in person made us feel much better going into the experience and also with Etienne as our guide. I also loved that he took pictures of us and sent them to us afterwards. It's so nice to have beautiful, high quality pictures of the experience!

Me and my wife and 16 years old son had a wonderful day with our guide Etienne. Our first plan was to go via Ferrara to del Formenton in Cortina. Etienne suggested that we would go to another place near Passo Falzarego. We had an excellent trip with a excellent guide. It was very nice that Etienne could speak English. If I come back to Dolomites for off piste skiing, I will definitely contact him.

Via ferrata Punta Anna, in Cortina

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.

Guided Via ferrata in Monte Paterno (2744 mt)

Had an amazing time with Enrico and Mauro. The views are just incredible and it was great to do something a bit different from just walking/hiking. They provided all the equipment and knew exactly where we were going and even took photos for us along the way which made the whole experience great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to via ferrata in the Dolomites!
