VIA FERRATA COURSE
photos of our guests
In the area around the Lake Garda you can find about ten vie ferrate which are accessible within a few minutes
by car from the center. The lengths are varying from 200 up to 1200m. While some are for beginners and children others are
very difficult. One thing all of them have in common: the possible access throughout the whole year and the
A very special trip of its own kind: situated in a canyon which used to be
a secret escape path from the above located Drena Castle. The holes of the
old wooden buildings are still visible. The route itself is not very long
but on a short passage some arm strength is requested. The course of the
route is only slightly above the bottom of the canyon. After ca. 50 m
there is an emergency exit. Otherwise you just follow the iron rope and
the iron steps. At the end of the route there is a swinging iron bridge on
which you may exercise your balance. A final steep path is leading to
Drena Castle. M

Alpine and very panoramic trip with view over the entire Monte Baldo mountain chain, Sarca
Valley and the Brenta Group. Fairly easy trip with short rock climbing
passages and exposed paths crossing vertical walls. Throughout the entire
route you may admire the remainders of military war construction owing to
which the route has been presumably built. The iron ropes have been partially renewed and are in a
good condition. For the descent we follow the same direction to Sentiero M. Foletti, then follow the way signs.

Via Amicizia to S.A.T. Peak in Riva del Garda
You can enjoy the unique view over Lake Garda on the long and exposed iron ladders. The "Friendship Route" with the
two famous and never-ending ladders is technically not very difficult but you must absolutely not suffer from
vertigo. It offers unforgettable and breathtaking views into the depth of Lake Garda and its valleys. The path
leads you over partially equipped rock terrain, always steep but never difficult up to the first ladder which has
more the 100 rungs. On a small platform in the middle you can take a rest and then follow vertically up. Further up
over unsteady terrain and some iron steps we reach the second ladder which is vertical and about 70 m high. We
reach SAT Peak after we have climbing some well equipped rocks and several short ladders and iron steps, we reach
Cima SAT Peak on the top of which there is an iron flag and a breathtaking view over the entire area. | Medium | hrs. 8 | pax 3/4 | EU 115,00
Route on the walls of the Adige Valley
following antique smugglers trails. Considering the enormous length of
the route, a very good physical condition is a prerequisite. In the beginning there is a short ladder, then
crossing some rocks up to a very exposed ledge with many a hundred of meters below you. Following the ledge around
the left ridge, we are crossing the huge and impressing cave on a sometimes rather narrow path which is getting
wider towards the final part. On the path crossing the cave there is no iron cable for belay. Further upwards
crossing forest, partially equipped rocks and open terrain we finally reach the top. | Easy | hrs. 9 | pax 3/4 | EU 120,00
A never-ending long trip on an immense and historical wall. Technically average difficulty. Due to the length a very good
physical condition is a prerequisite. The trail is evading the steep passages and takes advantage of the weaker parts of
the wall until you finally reach the impressing horizontal ledge which forms the upper limit of the light-grey limestone
slab. Then to the left over some iron steps almost vertically onto the exposed main section of the route. The
following passage is less steep, some without signs to the green "Cengia del Maurizio" (1200 m.) where you find the
summit' s booklet. The first part up to Doss dei Pini has been renewed in 2005 and has thus become slightly more
difficult. The panorama and view of Monte Casale Peak Casale (1600 m), in the North the Brenta Group, in the West
the Adamello Glacier, in the East the triangular peak of Marmolada and in the South the whole Lake Garda, makes up
for the fatigue. | Medium | hrs. 10 | pax 3/4 | EU 145,00
Very close to Mori village. This route is an ideal exercise for difficult routes. There are very exposed
crossings and difficult vertical climbing passages. Over vertical and overhanging parts and several crossings up to
the easier middle section. The end of the trip is reached after a very steep 60 m climb. The Via Attrezzata
Monte Albano "Ottorino Marangoni" is one of the first sports vie ferrate in the Alps and is being considered a very
demanding route in the Alps. It has lost none of its popularity which is obvious when you see the polished rock on
the entire route. This route is not recommended with rainy weather and wet rock. This rote has been renovated
and made safe at the beginning of 2014. Many brackets have been added an the exit area has changed. | Difficult | hrs. 4 | pax 2/3 | EU 95,00
Route only for experts; one of the most difficult via ferratas in Europe; the first 60 m and the central slabs
are very demanding. It offers a unique panorama over the entire valley and its various lakes, from Lake Toblino to
Lake Garda. It is the most sportive and the most demanding route in the region. You must cross a
30 m wall with almost no footholds, equipped only with iron ropes. Who has problems managing the initial part,
should take the emergency exit which is leading to the right and is equipped with iron ropes. Only at the end the
wall is sloping and the major difficulties are over. Then you proceed to the exit at 950 m and you have reached the
top of Piccolo Dain Peak. | Extreme | hrs. 6 | pax 2 | EU 155,00
