Grand tour di vie ferrate nelle Dolomiti di Brenta

From € 965

Level Intermediate

Duration 6 days

Zone Dolomiti

Bocchette’s via ferrata is a chain of huts exclusively present along the iron-paths in Dolomites. The location represents one of the most spectacular mountain regions in Brenta Group, which holds an articulated system of vie ferrate.

In Passo del Grostè an amazing crossing begins, and it takes us to the wilder Val D’Ambiez, in the south. With our mountain guides, we will walk an itinerary that will unveil intimate landscapes and astonishing vertical crags.

Technical description

  • Day One
    walking time – 7h (5h via ferrata).
    We meet the Guide at 14.30 and we check the equipment before the departure. We ascend to Pian del Grostè with the cable car and we enjoy a brief hike which will take us to our first hut (2661 m). Dinner and night at the hut.


  • Day Two: Sentiero Benini
    walking time: 5h – via ferrata 3h
    From the Passo del Grostè (2442 m) we reach the first fixed-rope route, the Sentiero Benini. This is an ideal introduction to the amazing world of vie ferrate. Enjoying the landscape over the rocky peaks of Val Flavona, we walk around the massif of Cima Grostè, the slopes of Cima Falkner in the direction of Bocca del Tuckett. In the end, we descend to the hut and spend the second night.


  • Day Three: Ferrata delle Bocchette Alte
    walking time 7h – via ferrata 4h
    After a regenerating breakfast we ascend to the vedretta of Brenta Inferiore, until the starting point of Bocchette Alte (2649 m), which will take us to Cima Brenta, after many vertical ladders and exposed passages. While in Bocca Alta dei Massodi, we climb up the famous ladder Scala degli Amici – 30 meters – that will take us to Spallone dei Massodi (3000 m), at the highest elevation of the entire adventure. Dinner and night at the hut (2580 m).


  • Day Four: Ferrata delle Bocchette Centrali
    walking time 7h – via ferrata 5h
    It’s the most spectacular section of the entire path. This section is characterized by the exposition of some passages on Molveno’s side and by the breath-taking traverse under the Campanil Basso (2620 m). The via ferrata ends once reached the Bocca di Brenta; from here we start the descent on a long path through the wild Val d’Ambiez, in the southern part of Brenta Group. Dinner and night at the hut (2410 m).


  • Day Five: Sentiero Brentari
    walking time 6h – via ferrata 3h
    We ascend directly to Vedretta d’Ambiez, on the slopes of the same peak, until the start of the ferrata Brentari on the top of the snowfield. From here, the iron-path will develop along the southern wall of the Cima Tosa, until the homonym Sella (2859 m), which ends in Rifugio Pedrotti (2491 m). Last section on the trail until Brenta Alta. Dinner and night in the hut (2182 m).


  • Day 6: Sentiero Sosat
    walking time 6h – via ferrata 3h
    The Sentiero Sosat is a well-known – and pretty easy – via ferrata which is builton the eastern side of Gruppo di Brenta, taking the advantage of iron ladders, and brings us admiring the Vedretta degli Sfulmini, a natural amphitheatre between dolomitic crags. It ends in Rifugio Tuckett, from here we reach Vallesinella (1513 m). Dinner and night stay at the hut (2580 m) included in the adventure.
