Information on the guided via ferrata trips at Lake Garda Dolomites Alps Trentino Italy

VIA FERRATA ITALY Lake Garda Trentino Dolomites Alps Italy

In the region of Arco Lake Garda Dolomites there are many routes which are accessible in short time by car from the villages in the Trentino province. The length varies from 250 up to 1300 m. Some of the routes are following the paths of WW 1 and are suitable for beginners whereas others are of medium or extreme difficulty. One characteristic all of them have in common: the possible access from April to October and the wonderful and stunning panorama. In the Brenta Dolomites Trentino the environment is completely different: the Bocchette del Brenta Trentino are following the ledges and ridges between the big rock walls and are not too difficult but almost alpinistic. Please read the report on guided Bocchette di Brenta Trentino by our Alpine School Arco at the link: www.alpintrek.com

"Rio Sallagoni" Castel Drena Trentino

A very special via ferrata in the Alps of its own kind and which makes part of the via ferrata course of the Alpine School Arco is situated in a canyon which used to be a secret escape path from the above located Drena Castle near Arco. The holes of the old wooden buildings are still visible. The via ferrata 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 cable bridge on which you may exercise your balance. A final short steep path is leading to Drena Trentino Castle.

"Fausto Susatti" to Cima Capi

During the base course by the Alpine School Arco, our mountain guides will accompany its guests on this stunning, alpine and very scenic route. The view over the entire Lake Garda, Monte Baldo mountain chain, Sarca Valley and the Brenta Dolomites Italy is simply breathtaking. Fairly easy guided via ferrata 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 Mario Foletti, then follow the way signs.

Via dell'Amicizia to S.A.T. of Trentino Peak

You can enjoy the unique view over Lake Garda Italy 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 crossed 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 Lake Garda.

"Gerardo Sega" Avio Trentino

Guided route on the walls of the Adige Valley in Italy 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 unique in the Dolomites 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.

"Che Guevara" to Mount Casale

A never-ending long trip on an immense and historical wall. Technically average difficulty. Due to the length of the trip, 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. 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 and in the East the triangular peak of Marmolada Dolomites, makes up for the fatigue.

Monte Albano in Mori near Arco

Very close to Mori village. This route is an ideal exercise for difficult trips. 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 via ferrata is reached after a very steep 60 m climb. The Via Attrezzata Monte Albano di Mori "Ottorino Marangoni" is one of the first sports via ferratas in Italy and is being considered a very demanding route in the Alps. It has lost none of its popularity which is perceivable when you see the polished rock throughout the whole route. This via ferrata is not recommended with rainy weather and wet rock.

"Rino Pisetta" to Mount Piccolo Dain

Via ferrata only for experts; one of the most difficult vie ferrate in Europe; the first 60 m and the central slabs are very demanding. It offers a unique magnificent panorama over the entire valley and its various lakes, from Lake Toblino to Lake Garda. It is the most sportive and the most demanding via ferrata in the Lake Garda region. You must cross a 30 m wall with almost no footholds, equipped only with iron ropes. If you have 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.
