Climbing in the Dolomites
Val Gardena: Where the Adventure Begins

The Dolomites which surround the Val Gardena were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and thus granted special protection. Climbers have the opportunity to directly experience the beauty of these mountains: mountain climbers, athletes or bouldering fans will find everything they need for an exclusive climbing experience in the valley. But it’s Alpine climbers who will feel right at home: climb the Sassolungo together with a mountain guide and discover other Alpine routes. Besides the Sassolungo, the Sass Rigais and the Furchetta will take you to heights of over 3,000 m. Even the famous Marmolada, Sas dla Crusc and the Tre Cime can be easily reached from Val Gardena.

There are countless trails in Val Gardena: short, long, hard, easy, suspended and flat. The City of Stones (Città dei Sassi) must be one of the most well-known climbing parks, sitting below the Sassolungo on the Passo Sella. You will be spoilt for choice even on Frea on the Passo Gardena. You will find a very interesting climbing wall with different trails, with one or more ropes. If you want to reach new heights, don’t miss the superb many rope Traumpfeiler. The Bernardi climbing wall is a small wall, but it promises peace and cool in a shaded forest.

We recommend inexperienced climbers or active families hire a mountain guide on site. Choose among different climbing courses and excursions where you’ll receive one or the other insider tip. Even sporty, ambitious climbers can profit from the advice of an expert mountain guide who’ll introduce them to the peculiarities of the climbing wall and tours.
