The Alps and the Dolomites offer unlimited possibilities for climbing, trekking and via ferrata. Both areas are very climber friendly, with a huge and well-run system of mountain huts and bivouac huts, which serve most parts of the mountains.
In the western Alps and in the Dolomites you can enjoy anything from single pitch sport routes to multi pitch and indeed multi day climbs in a beautiful alpine setting. There are also many routes that are friendly and not too long, but also give you the full alpine experience.
In the Dolomites the via ferrata routes are also very popular and are great for getting up peaks in impressive places.
