    Via Ferrata Brenta Dolomites Multi-day trip

    Full Description

    Rich in ancient culture and tradition, the mountains and valleys of the Dolomiti (Dolomites) are largely protected as regional parks and are crisscrossed by a vast network of well-marked trails. To the explorers of the 19th century, influenced by a romantic and heroic vision, these mountains were especially atmospheric. The bizarre vertical shapes, steeples, pinnacles and towers of white rock, standing out among brilliant green forests and grassy slopes dotted here and there with cows and tidy farms captured their imaginations. The landscape of today is no different. The meadows are still gentle and hospitable, flora and fauna are rich and varied, and the mountains are just as impressive. 

     

    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 certain areas, such as the Brenta 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.

    Super Guide

    "Massimo was a super guide. He assessed our abilities correctly and did not take us on anything that was too difficult for our level. He also gave us an overview of the region and some history which was much appreciated. We would definitely look to working with Mountain Guides Italy again when we are ready for our next adventure.
