Via Ferrata in the DolomitesEnquiries and Booking

Via Ferrata in the Dolomites

Download course information as a PDF - click here

During the First World War the Austrians invaded Northern Italy in an attempt to seize the disputed region of Tyrol. The Italians withdrew to the defensible position offered by the precipitous Dolomite Alps where both sides then built elaborate cableways, ladders, tunnels and bridges to permit them to move out of sight of the enemy. A fruitless struggle ended with neither side being able to displace the other but the system of Via Ferrata (literally ‘iron ways’) that they left behind has been maintained and upgraded to provide a fantastic, recreational, mountaineering resource.

Such was the ingenuity of the engineers that it is possible for any fit individual to scale the apparently impossible walls of these majestic mountains in safety and with relative ease.

Steve's week of guided Via Ferrata will ensure that you make the most of your experience. Based in the idyllic town of Cortina you will have the opportunity to enjoy 5 different day trips into the surrounding mountains, always ensuring you’re back with plenty of time to savour the Italian hospitality in the valley.

Dates: This provision is being currently run on a bespoke basis. Please call to arrange or discuss.

Cost: £495 (excludes travel, accommodation and food though guidance can be provided)
