Home to the mighty Dolomites, Trentino-Alto Adige in Italy is a region full of spectacular natural beauty and many rocky surfaces to climb. A via ferrata is a system of iron steps, hooks and wires designed to help you as you climb. There are around 600 via ferrata in the Dolomites, making it the perfect place for this activity.
In this region, you’ll find via ferrata routes to suit all levels. The via ferrata routes were originally created to make mountains more accessible. That means you get access to some awesome mountains like the Marmolada, the tallest mountain in the Dolomites, or high mountain passes like the San Pellegrino Pass. Plus, because most of them were created so long ago, they have some historical significance too as this region is basically the birthplace of this sport.
The summers are warm and the winters are very cold. There is often significant cloud cover.
Verona is the closest airport, from there you can travel by bus or car to your final destination.
The European summer and spring months are the best time to visit for via ferrata
