Via ferrata

Via ferrata at Lake Garda, in Arco and on the Brenta Dolomites with a Mountain Guide

Sport, nature and fun; how to live the mountain without being an expert climber.

A via ferrata can bring you to places that otherwise you would not be able to see without a proper physical preparation. To do a via ferrata you will need energy and effort, together with a bit of adrenaline, to reach the top.

A via ferrata is a mountain route equipped with iron cables, chains, iron ladders, iron bridges and other protections anchored in the rock that make it easier to access difficult peaks. To do this activity we will give you a climbing harness, a via ferrata kit (which includes a longe, two carabiners and an energy absorber) and a helmet. You just need to bring the equipment you usually use for hiking.

There are many wonderful vie ferrate near Lake Garda, in Arco and on the Brenta Dolomites, suitable for any level of physical preparation and desire for adventure.

They are all different from one another: If you want to take a challenge or if you are looking for peace and quiet amid the nature and its colours, we can surely find the right via ferrata for you.

Via ferrata in a group, with some friends, with your partner or alone

You can take part in a tour on a via ferrata alone, with your partner, with one of my organized groups or with your friends. Anyone can do a via ferrata, you just have to give yourself this challenge and have fun.
