Day 3

World War I Area

In the morning, meet your guide and enjoy a brief private transfer to the starting point of today's Via Ferrata adventure. Navigate through a sequence of metal brackets and a staircase, reaching the entrance landing of a 500m long tunnel at an altitude of approximately 2450 m. Illuminated by lamps, the initial stretch involves walking along secure metal steps. Exercise caution in the subsequent section, as the rocky surface tends to be damp and slippery. Upon exiting the tunnel, the cable diverges: veer left and proceed outdoors. After a brief uphill walk, you'll arrive at the tunnel's end. From here, a few meters along a equipped rocky ledge lead to the cable's descent, intersecting with the path from the previous exit at 2630 m.
Prepare for awe-inspiring panoramic views guaranteed to take your breath away!

Day 5

Via Ferrata Tomaselli

Prepare for another exhilarating day of Via Ferrata adventure! Today's ascent takes you along the Via Ferrata Tomaselli to the South Peak. At the onset of the crossroad, veer left onto smooth rock, ascend a few meters, and then make a left turn. Here, you'll encounter one of the most challenging points of the Via Ferrata—a brief passage through the crossing that puts considerable strain on the arms. The journey continues along vertical walls and exposed sections, but the rock transforms into a more 'staircase' structure. Navigate through this part until you reach a tranquil stretch characterized by relatively easy but somewhat tiring rock steps. A path leads left to the High Cengia di Fanes; continue left to the base of steep stretches equipped only with a rope leading to a pulpit. From here, embark on the final and demanding segment—a lengthy dihedral ascent up to a fork and some rugged, highly exposed plates. Despite their inclination, these plates swiftly guide you to Punta Fanes Sud at 2980 meters.
