    Via Ferrata Sentiero dei Fiori

    Full Description

    A Via Ferrata is simply a First World War mountain front line that has been turned into a recreational itinerary with modern equipment. One of the most famous Via Ferrata in the Alps is in the Adamello mountains: Sentiero dei Fiori. This exceptional itinerary runs along what was once the Italian front line during World War One. A few hundred metres further East, the Austrain-Hungarian soldiers took shelter in trenches, where at present the ski slopes descend towards Passo Tonale. The Via Ferrata winds along the ridge between Passo Casltellaccio and Passo Pisgana. The views of the Adamello, Ortles and Bernina Glaciers are stunning. It is hard to imagine that young Italian soldiers spent four years at 3000 metres, also during the long and cold Winters that witnessed 20-25 metres of snow and temperatures of -30C°. Tunnels, ladders, suspension bridges and easy climbing sections can be found on this itinerary.

    Example Itinerary

    It is for you and your guide to decide the exact makeup of your booking however, these itinerary days shown below are an example of how a booking for this activity could be structured.

    One day trip - A breath taking Via Ferrata that runs along the Italian First World War front line at 3000 metres in the Central Italian Alps.

    We take the cable cart from Passo del Tonale to Passo Paradiso (2585 metres). From here we start hiking on the trail that crosses over large boulders of the moraine to Passo Castellaccio (2963 metres). Here the “Sentiero dei Fiori” (Trail of the Flowers) starts, a Via Ferrata equipped with a wire cable that runs along the Italian First World War front line. From Corno Lagoscuro (3166 metres), where we find a little bivouac and great views of the Adamello Glacier, the trail continues down to Passo Lagoscuro. From here we follow the trail to Passo Presena (2990m) and then down on the Gondola to Passo Tonale. Up hill: 900m - Down hill: 300m

    Two day trip - Take your time and spend a night in one of the best huts in the Alps.

    We take the cable cart from Passo del Tonale to Passo Paradiso (2585 metres). From here we start hiking on the trail that crosses over large boulders of the moraine to Passo Castellaccio (2963 metres). Here the “Sentiero dei Fiori” (Trail of the Flowers) starts, a Via Ferrata equipped with a wire cable that runs along the Italian First World War front line.

    Via Ferrata Sentiero dei Fiori Reviews

    Awesome via ferrata

    "Cain our Guide in Ponte di Legno was a gem - I am aged 52 with confidence issues but he also had my son and nephew aged 24 and 17. He was able to manage the mixed ability group with ease providing effective instruction so that we all improved and enjoyed the day. The views are fantastic and the suspension bridges are awesome. Will be back next year for the Via Ferrata in the Brenta Dolomites."
