Via ferratas in the Dolomites

Steep rocks, sharp ridges and no shortage of landscape impressions

Non-slip handles, gentle inclinations, short routes, huge rock formations: to name but a few hallmarks of the via ferratas in the Dolomites. One thing is certain: nerve, confidence in your own ability and a head for heights are prerequisites for climbing in the Italian Alps. There is an abundance of via ferratas and climbing routes on offer.

The Dolomites are among the most classic and most popular areas for climbing. The incredible range of via ferratas at every level of difficulty give beginners and professionals alike a true mountain experience in a spectacular setting.

The via ferratas are usually equipped with steel cables, pegs, steps, ladders and stemples, to make the steep cliffs and ridges accessible to climbers of all levels.

Safety first: To make sure that nobody gets hurt on the Italian via ferratas, safety always comes first. With a helmet, safety harness and appropriate equipment, you’re good to go and explore the top peaks of the Dolomites.

By the way: It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on the weather forecast so you’re not caught out by a storm!
