Additional Information

This is the perfect trip for walkers who enjoy scrambling and are looking for a new challenge. Via Ferrata, 'Iron Way' in Italian, refers to a system of cables that cling to the side of the mountains on routes that would normally be the domain of rock climbers. Taking us each day on classic routes in the craggy mountains of the Sexten Dolomites, our expert local mountain guides teach us all we need to know, so we can safely clamber along ridges and up rock faces.
