„Kronaction“, the largest adventure park in the South Tyrol

Hikes and iron paths
Climb the Dolomites

One of the biggest gratifications an
expert hiker can know, is to climb a
"via ferrata" (iron paths ways). Alta
Badia is, due to its geographical position,
the ideal starting point for some of the
most beautiful hikes in the Dolomites.

Our suggestion: correct equipment,
experience and knowledge of the
mountain environment are important
ingredients in order to enjoy a safe day
out on a "via ferrata".

Climbing in the Dolomites: the Tre Cime di Lavaredo climing in the Dolomites

SUGGESTION: Ferrata Brigata Tridentina

This is justifiably a highly popular ferrata. One of the main reasons is the natural beauty of the Sella walls which, combined with the exposure, make the ascent up to the Torre Exner a highly satisfying outing. Other factors include its easy access, the possibility of cutting the itinerary short in bad weather, Rifugio Cavazza, the option of climbing up to Pissadù and, last but not least, the famous suspension bridge. Try to avoid the weekend crowds so as to get the most of this fantastic outing.

Ferrata Brigata Tridentina

Getting there
Take the road to Passo Gardena and the car park and disused quarry at 1956m, six hairpin bends beneath the Pass towards Val Badia.

From the car park at 1956m follow the marked path to the base of the ferrata. Alternatively, from Passo Gardena take path no. 666 for about 30 mins to join the ferrata slightly above the start.

Start by climbing up the first vertical face using the metal cables to reach a terrace and the path that leads in from Passo Gardena. Continue to beneath the east face of Torre Exner and follow the well-equipped ferrata up and leftwards. A variation leads off through the wide gully at about 2350m to the Masores plateau and Rifugio Cavazza. The ferrata however continues steeply up the east face to reach a series of ladders shortly beneath the summit, to then traverse leftwards across the suspension bridge which spans the deep gap. Once on the Masores terrace, stride across to Rifugio Cavazza and lake Pissadù just a stone’s throw away.

Take path no. 666 northwest down Val Setùs. Cables have been fixed on the steepest sections and snow patches may still be present in late August. The path joins up with the one that coasts beneath Torre Brunico and leads back down to the car park.

Kronaction high-wire adventure park

SUGGESTION: „Kronaction“, the largest adventure park
in the South Tyrol

The Kronaction high-wire adventure park lies in Issing near Pfalzen, in the midst of a primeval forest and surrounded by mossy spruce trees and an atmosphere of tranquillity. And it remains so, despite the adventure assault course. Not a single tree was felled to make way for the adventure park. The starting points and platforms around the trees, which are designed to let you take a break, along the daring assault sections themselves, are all made of wood found lying around in the forest.
Info on Kronaction – Outdoor & Fun Park

The hire-wire assault course is open between May and September from 10.00 to 18.00 hrs in all weathers, apart from storms. Sturdy footwear is recommended. Do not wear new clothing, as it is likely to be stained by resin from the trees. All visitors are provided with a corresponding set of equipment on loan. All sections have been tested and built in accordance with European safety standards.
