Via ferrate in les Dolomites autour de Cortina

Via ferrate in les Dolomites autour de Cortina

The Dolomites are unique in the world, and the relief, rock and landscapes are among the most beautiful on our planet. Sharp peaks, sheer cliffs and oceans of stone with resinous forests are the backdrop to our Via Ferrate holiday, which also has a historical and cultural dimension, as these cableways were created in the mid-19th century to make the mountains accessible to tourists! They really took off during the war between Italy and Austria between 1915 and 1918, with the military digging tunnels and developing these via ferrate to get around the steep, hostile terrain. For us, it's a different story, as the aim is to do beautiful routes with magical panoramas, and between each stage we stay in an Italian refuge where the atmosphere is as warm and friendly as ever!

At the the heart of Dolomites


Day 1: Departure from Cortina d'Ampezzo at 8.30am and transfer to Passo Giau to begin with the easy Via Ferrata of Ra Gusela and then the summit of Mount Nuvolau to reach the Averau fork, from where the ascent of the Averau via ferrata begins.
These 2 easy via ferrata climbs will allow you to assess your level and enjoy panoramic views of the area.  We return to the Col Gallina refuge for the night (half-board at the refuge).
Total walking time 5 to 6 hours - Ascent 350 m

Day 2: Depart Col Gallina at 8.30am for the via ferrata at Sass de Stria. This is the Sottotenente Fusetti via ferrata leading to the Sass de Stria summit (2477). Descending just before the Tre Sassi fort, we cross the valley to begin the ascent of Monte Lagazuoi along the Kaiserjäger path, before reaching Monte Lagazuoi (2782 m).
Overnight at the Rifugio Lagazuoi (half-board at the refuge).
Total time 6 to 8 hours - Difference in altitude 900 m

Day 3: Via Ferrata Tomaselli - Cima Fanis Sud (2980m)
From the Lagazuoi hut (2752m), a 2-hour approach to the start of the via ferrata, which takes 2 to 3 hours (300m ascent), followed by a 30-minute descent to the hut. We spend the night at the Lagazuoi hut (half-board).
Overnight at the Rifugio Lagazuoi (half-board at the refuge).
Total duration: 5 to 6 hours including the approach and return to the refuge.

Day 4: Via Ferrata Giovanni Lipella-Tofana di Rozes ( 3225m).
We leave the Lagazuoi hut (2752m) along the path towards the Dibona hut (2083m), which takes around 1 to 1.5 hours to reach the start of the via ferrata, which is around 800m long. It passes through a gallery, and the atmosphere is incredible. You should allow 6 to 7 hours for this route.
Overnight at the Dibona hut (half-board).

Day 5: Via Ferrata Giuseppe Olivieri-Punta Anna ( 2731m)
We set off from the Dibona hut to reach the start of the via Punta Anna via the Astaldi path and then the Pomedes hut, the starting point for the first 300m section. Depending on how motivated you are, there's another 550m to the summit of Tofana di Mezzo (3244m) - a great programme!
