Not recommended for anyone with vertigo, the Via Ferrata in the Dolomites, consisting of iron wrung ladders, footpaths and rope bridges, are an exhilarating series of routes that allow non-mountaineers to experience the higher peaks and most dramatic scenery of this most beautiful of mountain ranges. The Via Ferrata vary in difficulty from sedate mountain footpaths to challenging overhead multi-pitch climbs, and these more difficult routes are what attracts US and UK special forces to the Dolomites for mountain warfare training courses. We can arrange for Via Ferrata of varying degrees of difficulty
suitable for complete beginners or pro climbers and everyone in between. It might all sound a little adrenaline-fuelled and nerve-wracking, but the most simple routes – little more than mountain footpaths – still offer stunning scenic views, and when the going gets a little more difficult, there are metal railings that you can hook up to, adding an additional level of safety. Even better, all the trips are lead by highly qualified and extremely knowledgeable mountain guides who know the area intimately.
