One of the most remarkable gems of the Earth.
Bravo! You are about to discover one of the most remarkable gems of the Earth, the Italian Dolomites. This inspiring landscape, located near the Italy-Austria border, was industrialized during World War 1, to create a way for troops to move easily across extremely rugged mountain terrain to mobilize to strategic positions. Via Ferrata means “Iron Path” and that term accurately describes how unscalable rock walls and ridges were transformed into climbing “trails.” Over the last century, the via ferratas have slowly been upgraded into an historic, yet modernized, way for people to experience rugged mountain travel without great risk or expert climbing skills. Via Ferrata provide access to the otherwise inaccessible, but they can be challenging to travel, demanding plenty of full-body exertion, an ability to handle exposure, specialized safety equipment, and a sense of adventure. With the help of some of our close friends who live and work in these mountains, we have put together a unique itinerary that links all of the most classic, dramatic, and challenging via ferratas encircling Cortina d’Ampezzo with the Dolomites High Route (Alta Via) trail system to create an athletic, hut to hut journey like nothing else you will ever experience.
