The first people who climbed and reached the Dolomites peaks were English and since then every climber has never missed the chance to reach the top of our mountains.
Many organized (spiked) climb tracks and other more difficult ones are waiting for you. We also have schools of alpinism for the less experienced, that will teach you how to climb safely and to completely experience the emotions of this fascinating sport.
Many climbers like Messner, Kammerlander, Unterkircher and many others were born and raised in this region, leaving a remarkable sign of their achievements.
If you are interested in learning more about climbing, we recommend you buy Mauro Bernardi's book.
