The Via Ferrata Guided Walk trip starts from Niederdorf and ends in Punta Fiammes. It is a walking tour that takes 7 days taking you through Fondo Savio, Tre Cimene, Niederdorf and 4 other destinations in Italy. Via Ferrata Guided Walk is a self-guided trip that includes accommodation in guesthouses, transport, meals and others.

An exciting week of climbing in the Dolomites, Italy's 'pale mountains'. The breathtaking pinnacles of the Dolomites are well known to climbers around the world. During WWI, the Dolomite mountain range was the scene of heavy fighting and became an almost continuous front throughout the war, from Cortina d'Ampezzo in the west to the Predil Pass in the east. Making full use of their elite Alpine mountain troops, the Italians fixed iron ladders and wire cable to the rock to enable them to fight on the vertical walls. Today these Via Ferrata 'iron ways' have been turned into recreational climbs, allowing non-climbers to discover the mountains in safety and adding a new dimension to hiking the pristine alpine wilderness of the Dolomites. Daily climbs and walks are between 4 and 6 hours depending on the fitness of the group. Nights are spent in mountain hotels sampling the specialty foods of the region. Although no previous climbing experience is required, a high level of fitness and sense of adventure is essential.

“This was an excellent trip, made all the better by the unseasonably hot September weather! Our local guide Hannes put together an interesting and varied itinerary perfectly suited to our group, which was both enjoyable and challenging, allowing us to experience different styles of via ferrata while developing our own abilities. He was always careful to ensure that each participant was comfortable with the activities, and was very encouraging when sharing his own expertise and experience. I had some previous hiking experience, including on protected routes in the Dolomites, but had never attempted a via ferrata before; I did not feel that this held me back, although I would certainly endorse the statement that "you need to be sure footed and have a head for heights"! The hotel was easily accessed by train, and was comfortable with really good food. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday.”
