Schedule

Considered one of the most particular mountaineering itineraries in the Alps, the Via delle Bocchette is a fascinating route that crosses the Brenta Dolomites, always remaining at altitude for four days and sleeping in welcoming Alpine refuges.
To set up this route, from the 1930s a handful of passionate mountaineers dedicated themselves body and soul, laying out metal cables, anchoring ladders, fixing nails in the walls and digging, often armed only with pickaxes and shovels, the narrow ledges, widening them enough to be able to pass. Many years have been needed to connect the entire mountain group and make it passable and safe, and now more than ever, after recent interventions, we can enjoy the majestic landscapes that surround the red dolomite spiers.

In case of total cancellation, a recovery date will be established by the mountain guide. In the event of bad weather during the activities, once the course has started, no refund will be provided.
