Self-guided Via Ferratas in the Alps


This is the perfect combination of exploring on your own, yet having someone help you plan a trip which is otherwise quite complex to put together.

GO do via ferratas hut to hut in the Dolomites. Via ferratas in the Dolomites are the most famous, but these vertical playgrounds that are perched on the side of vertical rock faces are scattered throughout the Alps. There are nearly 2,000 via ferratas throughout the Alps, ranging from all levels of difficulty. Think of it as a climbing route for hikers or a hiking route for climbers.
