Refugio Son Forca // Parcheggio per Sorapis
spring & summer
MUST HAVE VIA FERRATA EQUIPMENTS
Helmet - harness - ropes - gloves - sunglasses - appropriate clothing : I would recommend long pants as you go up in big rocks that can easily cut you - warm clothes and change of clothes when you reach the top - Make also sure to take all the needed things (water, food,...) for the night as there are no supplements at the Bivacco.
The Bivacco Buffa di Perrero is located along the Ivano Dibona Via in the Dolomites, a stunning mountain bivouac shelter nestled within the rocks. It is not guarded and can likely accommodate up to 20 people with 3 “beds” of 3 and the rest on the floor . I had the chance to sleep in this bivacco while I was in the Dolomites and we were 18 people sleeping in the shelter, with about 10 on the floor 😉
I witnessed one sunrise and it was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend spending a night in the Bivacco Buffa di Perrero if you are in the area.
To access the part of the Ivano Dibona Via that is close to the bivacco, you can park at the Parcheggio per Sorapis, take the cabin up to the Refugio Son Forca (which is another amazing place to spend the night) and then climb the big “corridor” to get on the via ferrata. I’ve tried both “corridors” and I highly recommend the right one (the one mapped on the picture below). It’s the most frequently used path.
