    Via Ferrata Dolomites

    Full Description

    A Via Ferrata (Italian for "iron route", plural Vie Ferrate) is a protected climbing route found in the Alps and certain other locations. The essence of a modern Via Ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 3 to 10 metres) fixed to the rock. The origins of Via Ferrata date back to the nineteenth century, but Via Ferrata are strongly associated with the First World War, when several were built in the Dolomites mountain region of Italy to aid the movement of troops.

    Via Ferrata can vary in length from short routes taking less than an hour, to long, demanding alpine routes covering significant distance and altitude (1,000 metres or more of ascent taking eight or more hours to complete). In the Dolomites, it is possible to link several Via Ferrata together, staying overnight in mountain refuges, and so undertake extensive multi-day climbing tours at high altitude.

    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.

    Easy Via Ferrata - Gran Cir

    There is a good reason why this route is on the top of the list. It's the easiest one and the ascent is only 60 to 90 minutes long. Starting at Passo Gardena, one of the most photogenic mountain passes in the Dolomites, the route will take you to the top of the Gran Cir mountain where you can check out the beautiful views of the nearby Sella mountain group and Sassolungo.

    Intermediate Via Ferrata - Oskar Schuster

    Via ferrata Oskar Schuster takes you through the heart of Sassolungo and Sassopiato, two prominent peaks you can photograph from Alpi di Siusi - one of the most iconic photography spots in the Dolomites. This is a really fun and exciting route. The views along the way adorned with copious spires that are typical for this entire range, very dramatic indeed.

    Advanced Via Ferrata - Mesules

    Currently 109 years old (as of 2020), Via Ferrata Mesules is one of the oldest in the Dolomites, predating World War I. The route runs up the western face of the Sella Group and takes you to the little summit of Piz Selva from where the view over the moon like landscape of the Sella massif stretches for kilometres ahead. There is some significant exposure along some of the ferrata section, including a narrow gully. A rush of adrenaline is guaranteed!
