Here at EBO we’ve been running professional training, expeditions and excursions abroad for years, and bringing our expertise closer to home, we’re excited to be offering adventure walking weekends in the beautiful and awe inspiring Italian Dolomites. Only a short hop away from the UK (approx. 60 mins flight), it’s still a world away from busy UK life. Guaranteed to return you rested, inspired, fit and full of fun memories!
Via Ferrata’s are protected climbing routes, and are one of the greatest thrills a hiker can have, walking or climbing these ‘iron paths’ of the Dolomites. Suitable for keen walkers and novice climbers, a via ferrata guided route is a truly unique way of enjoying the sheer magnificence of the Dolomites, providing safe access to places normally reserved for climbers and mountaineers.
A system of anchored cables enables the scrambler to experience similar exposure to that often not available other than to climbers whilst knowing that they are always safely bolted to the rock.
This relaxing three-day trip is designed to build up to some classic routes, under the watchful eyes of our highly experienced MLTE MIA Instructor and guides.
