Via ferratas

Via ferratas are routes halfway between hiking and climbing, very common in the Dolomites. They consist of a steel cable permanently anchored to the rock face, to which climbers attach themselves using a via ferrata kit, a specially designed safety system.
A harness and helmet complete the set of equipment required to safely climb a via ferrata.

The Dolomites offer via ferratas for all tastes: from the easiest, such as the Bepi Zac via ferrata at Creste di Costabella or the three via ferratas at the stunning Fanes waterfall (Giovanni Barbara via ferrata, Lucio Delaiti via ferrata and Cengia di Mattia via ferrata) and a lot of medium difficulty itineraries such as Tridentina via ferrata at Pisciadù or the Trincee via ferrata at Padon with their exciting suspended bridge.. The Alleghesi via ferrata at Civetta is a must to do via ferrata in the Dolomites for an experience mountaneer Also unmissable are the Tommaselli via ferrata and the Aglio and Olivieri via ferrata at Tofana di Mezzo. In short, there is something for everyone!
