• Trekking at "Renon Horn"

    Whoever wants to see Tyrol with one glance must climb this mountain

    — Ludwig Purtscheller, an alpinist at the end of the 19th Century.

    No peak interrupts the view through the 360 degree panorama which opens around one. Besides the Dolomites, which spread in a bow from the south east to the south, there is an imposing view from Peitlerkofel past the Geisslerspitz to Schlern and then further past Rosengarten and Latemar to the Schwarz- and Weisshorn mountains.
    To the north is the expanse of the Sarntaler Alps, and behind them the Stubaier Alps. On a very clear day one can see Ortler from the Rittner Horn and with a great deal of luck you can also glimpse the Grossglockener to the east.
    An excursion to the Rittner Horn on a clear day is a memorable experince. The summit of 2,260 metres is reachable by a trip on the cable car from Pemmern to the Schwarseespitze.

When does it start the appropriate period for excursions, vie ferrate and climbs?

Usually during the end of May it is possible to climb the southern exposed faces and climb some railroads. In some cases, after winter with heavy snow, the snow on the top of the mountains can restrict the access to the vie ferrate.

Until when is it possible to go to climb, trekking and via ferrata?

You can go until the end of October. Usually autumn is an amazing season for all the activities on the mountains.
The weather is stabler than summer, which brings many dangerous storms. The colors of the forests and the fall’s lights make the Dolomites look even more beautiful!

Which are the best topographic maps for the Dolomites?

Tabacco Maps are arguably the best topographic maps in the Dolomites. They are scaled 1:25000 and cover the whole north-eastern part of Italy. You can buy the maps here.

What about the Alta Via of the Dolomites?

The “Alte vie” (High Routes) of the Dolomites are alpine trekking routes that connect various refuges. In general they are not particularly difficult, at least for those who are used to walking in the mountains. There are 8 routes provided with indications and marked with a characteristic symbol: a triangle with a number that labels each route.
The possibility to stay at a refuge – reservation is recommended – is guaranteed from the end of June to the end of September, but as bad weather is not uncommon in the mountains it is always better to be well equipped.

Is it possible to rent the technical equipment for via ferrata?

Yes, a lot of sporting goods stores you can rent climbing harnesses, helmets and ferrata set.
When you go on the mountains with a mountain guide, the guide is going to provide the necessary equipment, usually included in the price.
