Dolomites Via Ferrata

Experience the adrenaline rush of climbing a via ferrata – the “iron paths” of the Dolomites built during WWI.

Climbing a via ferrata is an exhilarating way to enjoy the magnificence and sheer magnitude of the Dolomites. In this awesome mountain environment, protected on a rock wall high above the valley floor, you will be stopped in your tracks by amazing views while you learn valuable mountain safety skills.

Via ferrata literally means “iron path,” originating from the metal ladders used by the military in WWI to navigate these mountains. While most of the ferrata have been replaced with newer hardware, they follow the same routes the military used, high into the mountains. Completely protected, attached to a system of anchored cables while you climb, you’ll enjoy vistas typically reserved only for mountaineers!

Our via ferrata holidays provide an opportunity to learn the rope work skills required for the safe use of this type of route. We also provide guided ascents of some of the most classic routes in the Dolomites. And, all of our via ferrata trips are led by UIAGM/IFMGA Professional Mountain Guides, ensuring your safety and enjoyment!

Please contact us for more information on booking your vacation in the Dolomites.
