PROGRAM

Via ferrata in the Brenta Dolomites: guided Trek

The Brenta Dolomites features one of the most articulated via ferrata systems in the Alps. They are in fact crossed in their entirety by an equipped path at high altitude which, taking advantage of the mountains' natural ledge and the rock formations, connects all the mountain hut of the group.

Among the most beautiful and panoramic equipped paths in the Dolomites there is Bocchette Centrali. This via ferrata extends into the heart of Brenta surrounded by its highest and most famous peaks and develops between Bocca di Brenta and the Bocca degli Armi with breathtaking views of Campanil Basso and Crozzon di Brenta.

Bocchette Centrali offer unforgettable panoramas, aerial passages and breathtaking views. All this combined with an overnight stay at high altitude, in one of the huts of the Brenta Dolomites.
