My friends and I are planning to trek the northern portion of the Alta Via 1 in mid-September and looking for some advice on how to incorporate a day of via ferrata during our trek. We are all fairly fit and active but it will be our first time doing via ferrata so we would like to hire a guide.
A few questions:
1) Is our best bet to reach out to our rifugios to find a guide or are there any that folks would recommend?
2) Any recommendations on a via ferrata day trip that goes along our planned path (below)?
This is our draft itinerary and my thinking was that we'd spend an extra night wherever we did the via ferrata from.
-Night 1: Lago De Braies
-Night 2: Fanes
-Night 3: Lagazuoi
-Night 4: Nuvolau
-Night 5: Croda Da Lago
-Nights 6: Cortina
-Night 7: TBD
Any general advice or comments on via ferrata or our itinerary in general would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
