In the Dolomites you climb on the foot of large, vertical walls, often also in drains and chimneys, which finally lead to bands and high plateaus with enchanting views. The Dolomites are a huge region, which could be subdivided. For example, a weekly programme alone in Reintal “valley”, Corvara, , Corvara or Sottoguda would be a good idea. However, should you not be focused on one specific destination, many areas can be reached quite fast from the Pustertal valley. In any case a must for every ice climber!

Due to being close to the main Alpine ridge (Reintal valley) and at the same time to the Dolomites, this region again offers a great deal of flexibility with regard to the weather and possible dam locations. So you can react relatively quickly to weather changes and choose the right ice tour.
As our travel time is not too long, we offer one-day tours in this region, though the travel expenses will be charged additionally. If a multi-day programme is desired, the accommodation of the mountain guide must also be provided. Call us or write an e-mail, we will be happy to advise you and put together a suitable programme!
The icefalls of the Dolomites and the Reintal valley are mainly in South Tyrol, as well as in Trentino and Veneto. The most central place to be as flexible as possible is for sure Bruneck. From there you can reach the Reintal valley, Corvara and the Pragsertal valley in a bit more than half an hour.
Accommodation and food are not included in the price. In this region, accommodation is available in every price category. We recommend to book the accommodation early enough as especially in the high season (Christmas, February - March), places are quickly fully booked.
Here are some addresses:
Rein in Taufers
Technical material is included in the price.
Since we do not climb constantly, there can be "standing times" in cold temperatures, so make sure to bring along enough warm clothes - one cools down quite quickly!
We recommend you bring light clothing of varying thickness to achieve an "onion system" for greater comfort. Cotton is not suitable as it quickly becomes cold upon getting wet. Skiing apparel, however, works well. Our recommendation: warm merino underwear and a fast warming down jacket.
If you want to take your own technical material with you: (otherwise rental equipment included in the price)
