Four days through the Brenta Mountains: The Bocchette trail in the Dolomites is one of the most famous via ferrata classics in Europe. The marvellous path leads through the breathtaking mountain scenery of the Brenta and takes you to some great refugios to spend the nights.

The Via Bocchette is one of the best via ferrata-routes in Europe and is regarded as an absolute classic of the Alps by experienced mountaineers. The trail was already opened in the 1930s but still guarantees a superlative climbing adventure for any avid Ferratista. On the four-day tour across the Brenta, the route leads in an altitude of more than 3000 meters. Over narrow ledges, along yawning chasms, jagged rock faces and ladders at the Grostè pass through the Brenta to the south and back to Madonna di Campiglio. Between the Rifugios it applies to climbing technically demanding sections, to enjoy breathtaking vistas and spectacular views, to cross numerous nicks and climb to the summit. Although individual stages of the path can also be done as day trips, whoever has the time, should enjoy this alpine classic in its full length.
