A succession of mountain huts entirely located on via ferrata routes! We are in one of the most fascinating mountain regions, precisely in the Brenta Dolomites mountain range home to one of the most complete and articulated via ferrata systems in the entire Alps: Via delle Bocchette.

Starting from Passo Grosté a thrilling crossing begins heading south towards the wild Val d’Ambiez, an itinerary that among exposed thin ledges, glacierets and vertical walls leads to the discovery of some of the most fascinating and intimate alpine views along the entire Dolomite massif.
