Via Ferrata

Via Ferrata is a variation on rock climbing over natural rock faces. They follow pre laid routes - wires, pegs, ladders, ropes - so that no special skills are required. All of our resorts have excellent Via Ferrata and they offer an incredible way of seeing the real mountain and the sheer beauty of its scenery and wildlife.

What are Via Ferrata?

Via Ferrata are protected climbing routes with fixed climbing aids (ladders, rungs, wire ropes) which mostly consist of rope assisted walks and easy to moderate climbs which do not require any special climbing skills, thus giving everyone an opportunity to move through spectacularly exposed alpine scenery with the minimum of equipment. Via Ferrata are suitable for all ages and abilities from 8 years and up.

The low down

Run by a specialist climbing school, your instructor and guide will transport you the short distance to the location or start point. It is a great half-day excursion and offers a unique way of seeing the mountains. We like to run the activity with other Alpine Elements guests which make for sociable groups of 8 to 12 people.

Via Ferrata is a very popular add-on activity with our guests. They are rambles and climbs which do not require any special climbing skills - yet give everyone an opportunity to move through spectacular, exposed alpine scenery with minimal equipment.
