The Cor di San Lucano is one of the most incredible and remote places in the Dolomites. Here, nature has created a true spectacle, unique and unparalleled. A hole in the rock in the perfect shape of a heart is hidden between the steep walls of the Cima dei Balconi. The beauty is unique, but the environment is harsh.
This natural wonder is jealously guarded by the surrounding peaks: there is no signposted path and for long stretches you hike along faint tracks between steep meadows and overhanging rocks that require some scrambling (easy climbing), sometimes exposed.
This is definitely a climb for experienced walkers, preferably with previous via ferrata experience. Not suitable for beginners or those with little training.
In short, a climb that will provide unforgettable emotions and memories, away from the crowds and discovering wild and little known mountains to do at least once in your life!

What you need to know:
  • The minimum age should not be seen as a rigid parameter, but rather as a rough indication that will obviously depend on the technical skills, experience and level of training of the participants. If you feel that you or a member of your group would be able to take part in the excursion if your age were lower, please contact me directly at info@giovanni-orlando.it or call +39 328 83 15 601. In this case it is compulsory to contact the guide before registering for the activity.
  • The maximum number of persons indicated must be intended for a single guide. In the case of larger groups, one or more mountain guides will be used, in accordance with the maximum ratio indicated on the activity sheet. In this case, please send an e-mail to info@giovanni-orlando.it or call +39 328 83 15 601.
  • It is imperative that participants follow the instructions of the mountain guide before and during the activities and respect any changes to the chosen programme in order to ensure their safety.
  • Fees for facilities, transfers and accommodation are subject to change at the discretion of the operator (external to my company) and are not included in the price of the activity unless otherwise stated.
  • The fares shown in the ‘The fare does not include’ section are indicative and may vary.
  • For all itineraries and activities, the guide reserves the right to make changes according to conditions (weather, accessibility, refuges) and the physical condition of the participants.
  • The times indicated for carrying out the activities are subject to variations due to weather conditions and the physical state of the area (snowfall, terrain conditions, etc.) and necessarily depend on the opening and closing dates of the ski lifts, which are set seasonally/annually by the ski lift operators and are therefore in no way attributable to the mountain guide.
  • Minors under the age of 18, if unaccompanied, require a parental or guardian waiver to be given to the guide prior to the excursion.
