Three exciting days through the Brenta Dolomites: The Via delle Bocchetta or ‘Bocchette Way’ is not only one of the most famous via ferrata classics in Italy but also in Europe. The marvellous path leads through some of the most spectacular rock scenery in the Dolomites with great mountain huts to spend the nights. 

Why are the Brenta-Dolomites so special? Millions of years of steady erosion have created narrow natural ledges unique to these mountains. The use of these ledges as routes for non-climbers to travel through the mountains goes back to the 1930s, when local climbers and enthusiasts first started to discover the mountains and installed ladders, rails and bridges thus creating a path through the needles, spires and gorges through these wonderful mountains.

On this trip you will be accompanied by a state recognized mountain guide. It is an unforgettable yet safe journey for which no previous alpine experience is required. The via ferratas used are never technically difficult but they are long and of alpine proportions and there is considerable exposure on some sections. Reasonable fitness, a head for heights and good balance and mobility on rocky, uneven terrain are the only pre-requisites.
