If you ever wanted to experience the thrill of rock climbing, why not come to Villa Belvedere? The Dolomites are one of the best and most varied climbing destinations in the world. Thousands of classic and modern climbing itineraries make Cortina d’Ampezzo and San Vito di Cadore a true climber’s paradise – from accessible climbing gardens in walking distance to towering summits breaching 3000m in altitude. You can enjoy the athletic challenge of bolted single pitch crags or try your skills on great classic Alpine routes in a stunning natural landscape.

Even if you have never climbed before, Villa Belvedere offers you a great experience. San Vito has a long tradition for climbing and you can also book a local guide and borrow the necessary equipment. Beginners can climb in absolute safety thanks to Cortina’s numerous Vie Ferrate (routes equipped with metal cables, ladders and bridges). Expert climbers are spoilt for choice: the area of Cinque Torri alone offers hundreds of routes of all difficulty levels. And should it ever start raining, there is a modern indoor climbing gym just 30 km north of Cortina.
