7 day via ferrata traverse in the dolomites

Climb on some of the most famous via ferrata in the world – Tridentina, Punta Ana, Lipella, and more and see the remains of the First World War when many of the ferrata were built.  Enjoy spectacular views from the top of the Dolomite mountains, staying in mountain rifugios, the best in the Alps, and charming hotels and B&Bs – the perfect combination of mountain accommodations – as you traverse through the Dolomites.
The breath-taking pinnacles of the Dolomites are well known to climbers and non-climbers all over the world. For non-climbers, the world famous vie ferrate (“iron paths”) of the Dolomites provide access to mountains and views usually reserved for climbers and mountaineers. Wire cables are fixed to the rock walls for safety, in addition to iron rods and steps. These incredible well-protected routes allow almost anyone to safely ascend a mountainside.

Day 3  Via Ferrata Olivieri a Punta Anna (5 hours hiking and ascending a moderate 440m via ferrata) One of the most interesting and beautiful via ferrata in the Dolomites due to its steepness, exposure and beauty, rendering it deeply satisfying!  End the day at a charming rifugio where you will stay for the night.

Day 5  Via Ferrata Tomaselli   (3 hours ascending via ferrata, 2 hour descent hiking) Descend along the Via Ferrata Forcella Fanis onto the Cadin di Fanis Glacier, entering a WW1 tunnel which winds itself through the Fanis Peaks to Cima Scotoni, then descend to Hotel Conturines in San Cassiano for the evening.

Day 6  Via Ferrata Tridentina  (3 hours ascending via ferrata, 2 hour descent hiking) Less challenging day but no less beautiful!  A stunning last via ferrata overlooking some spectacular waterfalls through to the Pisciadu Hut – an amazing location for a drink and rest before the descent of the dramatic Val Setus and back to your hotel in San Cassiano for the evening.
