The Dolomites are unequaled in the number and beauty of their vie ferrate offering not only strong emotions but more. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

The Dolomite Mountains were the birthplace of the via ferrata. The routes were used during the First World War when the mountainside was the theatre of battle between Austria and Italy. Fighting for higher positions, the soldiers fixed steps and ladders into the rock to be able to navigate the mountains more easily.

access to the sublime peaks of the Dolomites. All the via ferratas have now been renovated and modernized, to guarantee a greater standard of safety.

Some of our favourites spots are:

East Dolomites (Val di Fassa, Val Gardena, Val Badia)

  • Marmolada west ridge. Includes crossing a glacier and reaching the summit of the quin of Dolomites. A rather easy via ferrata, although glacier crossing has to be considered (intermediate-advanced – 1 day).
  • Tridentina Sella, in the Sella group. A challenging via ferrata with easy access, with beautiful views of the mountains and the village at the foot of the massif. It can be done in a half day.
  • Mesules, in the Sella group. One of the oldest via routes in the area, doable in a half day. A very demanding exposed via ferrata which starts at the Sella pass and ends at the summit of Piz Selva.
  • Roda de Vael and Masarè, in the Rosengarten group. Two routes close by which we can easily do in the same day. Masarè is the most demanding of the two, but also incredibly beautiful.

West Dolomites (near Cortina D’Ampezzo):

  • The long Lagazuoi tunnel: The famous helical tunnel was excavated during the First World War by Italian soldiers. You will see many locations at which there are historic items with detailed descriptions, and many historic curiosities. In addition, there are some places where you can leave the gallery for a short distance, or admire the view through the windows carved in the rock.
  • The Sass de Stria trenches: Along the southwest face of the Sass de Stria Mountain the Alpine Army Corps bolted a new via ferrata that follows the historic trail Lieutenant Mario Fusetti took during the Great War I. A very interesting yet never too difficult circular tour around this mysterious mountain, along trails, tunnels, trenches and the new via ferrata.
  • Monte Paterno, in front of 3 Cime di Lavaredo. The start of the ascent is inside of a tunnel used during World War I. The view of the 3 Cime di Lavaredo will leave you breathless.
