At the client's request, our Mountain Guides will guide you to enjoy wonderful adventures and breathtaking views that only the great peaks of the Dolomites can provide.


Classic outing, quite long but without particular difficulty; usually the first "3000" to be climbed. Satisfaction is guaranteed.


Normal route with a long approach that leads to one of the most important Dolomite peaks directly above the Boite valley. This is a very satisfying peak with a wide panorama of the Dolomites in a secluded setting.


The Croda Rossa d'Ampezzo is undoubtedly one of the most difficult normal routes in the Dolomites because of the length and friability of the rock. The difficulties of the ascent are amply repaid once you get to this wild and inaccessible peak. At present, of the 3 normal routes that climb the summit, the Innerkofler route, which climbs from Pratopiazza, is preferred; it has passages of greater technical difficulty, but relatively better rock than the other two routes on the west side.
