Cima Capi is a spectacular via ferrata. The view is fantastic. It is a beautiful trail. The history is very interesting. The climbing is not so difficult. The hiking in and out is very rocky you need sturdy sole shoes. It is a pretty a pretty long trip. We were glad to reach the car and relax afterwards.

I had a fantastic time on a canyoning tour led by instructor Coco. Their expertise and passion for the activity were clear from the start, making me feel safe and excited. Coco struck the perfect balance between challenge and support, and their positive attitude made the experience even more enjoyable. Their knowledge of the environment and commitment to preserving it were truly inspiring. This canyoning tour with Coco is an adventure I won't forget – it was an incredible journey of exploration and growth.
