If you choose Via Ferrata Cortina as your via ferrata experience in the Dolomites, you will have your base camp in the Cortina area with the possibility to visit some cultural and historical attractions after the daily climbing sessions, but if you prefer a hut to hut via ferrata trek in the Dolomites, is possible to do it in different parts of the eastern and western area of Cortina.
