Some via ferrata routes enable you to re-enact experiences dating back to the tragic First World War conflicts that directly involved Cortina d’Ampezzo. These unmissable routes, comprising easy sections and others of medium difficulty, take you to outposts, old garrisons and field hospitals, locations typical of the trench warfare fought amongst the Ampezzo peaks. These itineraries are unmissable for their unique emotions and for the beauty of the landscapes providing the backdrop for the experience.
