One of the greatest thrills an expert hiker can get is to walk a Via Ferrata. And there can be no equal, in terms of number and beauty, to the “iron paths” in the Dolomites. To help you discover these itineraries Dolomiti.org has created a wide selection of some of the most beautiful Vie Ferrate in the “Pale Mountains”.

All itineraries have a detailed description which includes the ascent, logistics, nearest mountain refuge etc, and are accompanied by a map and portfolio. A PDF version of each ferrata can be downloaded and printed on a single sheet of A4, ready for use on the actual outing.

Furthermore, it is possible to add and read people’s comments about the Ferrate to find out about their current state, their beauty, any personal advice and much more.

To finish though, a word of warning: correct equipment, experience and indepth knowledge of the mountain environment are vital ingredients if one is to enjoy a safe day out on a Via Ferrata. And before setting off make sure to contact the refuge warden or the local Mountain Guides about the state of each Via Ferrata.
