In the heart of the Dolomites there are several fixed rope routes
Via Ferrata actually means "Iron Way" in Italian, referring to a system of cables that cling to the side of steep rock faces and ridges and thus creating a fixed rope route. A Via Ferrata promises a special kind of experience: In the middle of untouched nature and especially at the heart of the Dolomites you will find all you can wish for. Whether you embark on a one-day trip or go for a five-day tour and sleep in an Alpine refuge depends on your physical fitness, the season and obviously how experienced you are with the mountains. Before the ascent, ask qualified mountain guides about the current shape of the Via Ferrata and accommodation opportunities.
