In Ballino di Tenno, a compelling tour into the heart of the waterfall

A short approach from the rural village of Ballino, through meadows and verdant beech forests, leads to the base of the Rio Ruzza waterfall, where suddenly your mountaineering adventure begins on the new Rio Ruzza via Ferrata, also known as the Lady of the Waters.

The newly built via Ferrata is perfectly set up with stirrups, ropes, and three Tibetan bridges; it is short but intense and requires some technical commitment and physical strength. The via Ferrata runs parallel to a spectacular waterfall, and you can touch its waters on the most exposed passages.

This exciting tour is located in a valley and is perfect for shelter from the heat of summer days.

Who is your guide

Nice to meet you, I’m Mauro, International Alpine Guide UIAGM. I live in Arco since 2001 and in that very year I opened my Alpinism school Mmove (former Friends of Arco). For several years I’ve been living amazing adventures from the Alps to Patagonia, till the high peaks of Karakorum, following or opening new routes on these wild peaks. My goal now is to share my enthusiasm for the mountain with my guests.

Highly recommended and well-guided activity.


I had done Ferrata routes before, alone and with a guide, and in this case, having faced the first experience on the Lady of the Waters/Rio Ruzza together with Andrea from Mmove made the difference. This is short but intense, with a couple of challenging sections, overcome thanks to our guide. What can I say? Organization, professionalism, and equipment are all top-notch.
