Alta Badia offers a wide choice of high altitude excursions, climbing, mountaineering and via ferrata. Alpine guides offer weekly via ferrata of varying difficulty. The excursions are organised by Alta Badia's leading mountain guides (Ingo Irsara, Kurt Walde and Diego Zanesco).
In Corvara, at the Boè cable car, an artificial climbing wall has been installed where visitors can try their hand at various levels of difficulty.
For those who want to try their hand at climbing, or explore the high altitudes or tackle a particularly challenging mountain tour, it is always advisable to do so in the company of a local mountain guide. Getting to know the mountains, the weather and the surrounding nature is of vital importance.

In general, the Dolomites in and around Alta Badia are considered by many to be the most beautiful mountains in the world and have been a challenge for climbers and mountaineers for many years. There are many vertical rock faces and steep peaks, which are guaranteed fun for climbers. In the Dolomites every hiker, beginner and experienced mountaineer will find their own route.
Legendary are the Catinaccio Group, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the Sasso di Santa Croce and the Torri del Sella, which are on Reinhold Messner's list of first ascents.
