Via Ferrata delle Aquile near Lake Garda
Duration: 9 hours Medium
Why we love this tour
Cross the sky over thrilling suspension bridges and scale up the La Paganella mountain on a thrilling via ferrata through the clouds.
- Scale narrow ledges with massive exposure
- Cross through the clouds on two suspensions bridges
- Reach incredible panoramas of the Brenta Dolomites
- Peer out over the Trentino region from 1,995 m (6,545 ft)
Deep in the Brenta Dolomites just north of Lake Garda, several elevated plains and rocky peaks make up the Paganella massif. Explore this mountainous playground on a via ferrata full of surprises and climbing challenges.
Take a cable car ride up to the starting point and revel in the panoramic views around you. Along the route, you climb on iron ladders along an exposed rock face of Paganella. Feel the breeze under your feet as you cross suspended bridges from peak to peak. There are few via ferrata climbs in northern Italy as airy and exposed as this one. With a name like "Eagle's Via Ferrata," you'll be flying through the sky over the valleys below and the Dolomites beyond.

A very good experience. The number of exposed sections were shorter (but with considerable difficulty) than what I had expected. Hiking along the steep path carved out in the mountain was the mainstay. But 5/5 to our guide Matteo who was an expert mountaineer (he helped a fellow climber cross over a difficult section when she got badly stuck). Overall a very memorable experience!

Best day ever, easy to find very reliable and friendly staff. Plus you get to see some really great scenery on your way to the steering point. First class canyoning and the guide Andrea needs a pay rise.

This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Lake Garda! Such an amazing experience with one other solo traveller and our guide Andrea who immediately put us at ease with his sense of humour and easy going nature. He also kept a watchful eye on our safety as we were both first timers on a via ferrata climb. The views were spectacular ...even better than I anticipated! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun yet challenging activity

Location was very nice, instructor was friendly and experienced. We had a lot of fun! Only thing that was a bit confusing was the pickup. We booked through OutdoorVisit but we're supposed to find the tour operator (MMove) at the crowded pickup point. They didn't seem to be able to find our reservation, but after 20 mins everything worked out. This meant that other people had to wait for us though.

Fantastic day out. The guys were great, made it a laugh and I 100% recommend. I’m afraid of heights and water and managed to do it, my adrenaline was pumping. Lots of jumps and abseils. It is a little scary but you feel great and really feel you achieved something afterwards. I think the reps were called David and Andreo they were great!
