Via ferrata is what the Dolomites are famous for. Originally created through necessity during the fierce fighting of WW1, these cabled scrambles and climbs allow those of modest ability to access the most spectacular rocky faces and viewpoints. There are a huge number of these fixed protection climbing paths in the Dolomites which are graded by difficulty. If you like scrambling and have a head for heights, there is something for all abilities which will give you a truly memorable experience. Once you have the via ferrata bug, we guarantee you won’t look back! A via ferrata kit can be hired from ‘Sport Di Grandi Marmolada’ a few hundred metres away from Casa Alfredino, or if you need help choosing your own, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
If you would like to participate in this fantastic activity bu are uncertain of your ability and want the assitance of a professionally qualified mountain guide or instructor, please contact us as we have both local and UK contacts who will be able to show you the very best the area has to offer.
