The Dolomites: Pretty Crags

The jagged peaks of the Dolomites

Straddling Italy’s northern mountainous borders, the jagged peaks of the Dolomites is famous as the birthplace of via ferrata (or the ‘iron way’), when Italian and Austro-Hungarian troops devised metal ladders to traverse this vertical landscape during WWI. Today, this pristine UNESCO World Heritage site is a popular place for hiking, climbing and of course, via ferrata. Surrounding this collection of unruly crags are picturesque alpine pastures and small rest huts where you can enjoy a hearty meal after a long day’s activity. Excursions and via ferrata trips are available from the nearby town of Bolzano.
