Via Ferratas

The Brigata Tridentina Route in the mighty Sella Group is the most popular via ferrata or fixed-rope route of the Dolomites

Via Ferrata actually means "iron path" in Italian, referring to a system of iron ladders, brackets used as steps and steel ropes that cling to the side of steep rock faces and ridges and thus creating a fixed-rope route. The via ferratas leading through the heart of the Dolomites of the Val Gardena, Upper Val Pusteria and Alta Badia valleys are the most famous ones: Cir V, Torre di Toblin, Piz da Lech are some of them. Whether you embark on a one-day trip or on a multi-day tour with overnight stay in an Alpine refuge depends on your physical fitness and how experienced you are.
