4 multi-sport days to regenerate your mind and body


Cortina's mountain guides offer "4 multi-sport days", a successful and original combination of e-bike, via ferratas and climbing routes, leading up to the most famous peaks of the Ampezzo valley in a sustainable way.

The participants will be amazed by the beauty of this itinerary. It leads through the Ampezzo Dolomites Nature Park and to the Fanes waterfalls, which are among the highest permanent waterfalls in the Dolomites.

Every eventful day ends in one of the mountain huts of the Cortina Delicious area, which stretches between Pocol and the Dolomite passes Falzarego and Giau.

4 adventurous days, surrounded by nature, to find yourself again, to train your body and refresh your mind.

Day 1

  • Meeting in the mountain guide office, check of the technical equipment and, if necessary, hire of an e-bike;
     
  • descent to the Nature Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites, where to tackle the first via ferrata in spectacular surroundings: the Fanes waterfalls. It is an easy round trip under one of the highest waterfalls in the Dolomites;
     
  • after having climbed the via ferrata, we will cycle to the mountain hut Rifugio Dibona located at the base of the majestic Tofana di Rozes, one of Cortina’s iconic mountains, and spend the night there.

Day 2

  • After a hearty breakfast, we cycle up to the Duca d'Aosta refuge, from where we can reach the via ferratas Ra Bujela (easy) or Ferrari alla Pegna (medium difficulty).
  • These via ferratas are located on the sides of the famous “Tofana Schuss", the steepest section of the iconic slope of the women's downhill World Cup races.
