My Dolomites in July

Via ferratas in Hochpustertal

During a holiday in one of Europe’s most popular climbing areas you should not miss out on climbing on one of the via ferratas in Hochpusterta.

You should bring good surefootedness to take on a via ferrata, be free from giddiness and have a bit of climbing experience for the more advanced trails.

Have a try at the following via ferratas, all accessible from the Drei Zinnen Hut:

Toblinger Knoten (2,627m)

Climbing experience, surefootedness and stamina are an advantage on this via ferrata on the Sextner Dolomites.

Before you start climbing, you have quite a long ascent to the Drei Zinnen Hut at 2,450m ahead of you. From there the last part of the trail leads over steep iron ladders to the summit cross on the Toblinger Knoten. Once at the end of the trail, you can enjoy the wonderful mountain panorama views over the surrounding Dolomites summits and the famous Drei Zinnen.

This 9-hour tour is about 17.3km long. The descent leads you down the 40 minutes long “Feldkurat-Hosp-Steig” and back to the Drei Zinnen Hut.

Paternkofel (2,744m)

On this via ferrata you will also need surefootedness, stamina, climbing experience and need to be free from giddiness.

Again, take a hike to the Drei Zinnen Hut (2,450m). For this via ferrata start from the hut and walk through a tunnel to Gamsscharte and from there steep up the mountain to Paternkofel’s summit.

The via ferrata alone takes about an hour, ascent and descent.

Get more information to further attractive via ferratas on the South Tyrolean Dolomite Alps at the mountain guide office in Toblach or Sexten. We at your Leitlhof Holiday Hotel in Innichen will also gladly provide you with detailed information. We are looking forward to your no obligation holiday enquiry.
