You don’t need to be an expert climber to enjoy breathtaking views from the top of a mountain. If you don’t know how to climb, but wish to live a similar experience, a via ferrata adventure is what you are looking for. And there’s not a better area, than the one near Barcelona, Spain, for this type of trip.

What is a via ferrata?

It means “iron path” in italian. And for good reasons, as it is a rock climbing or ascension route which is protected. So, it normally has a steel cable rail fixed to the rock. But it could also have metal steps or ladders, as well as suspension bridges. It could even involve zip lines. The activity consists on progressing through such via ferrata, with a harness clipped on to the cable.

Also, it could be considered an activity in between rock climbing and scrambling. So it is the perfect activity for non-expert climbers. You can reach high altitudes, but without the risks of mountaineering or rock climbing. Plus, it does not require as much equipment.

I have crafted this private program to adapt it to your requests. Therefore, you get to choose which area you want to visit. Some of the options include: Montserrat, Montsant, Centelles Via Ferrada de les Baumes Corcades and Sant Feliu de Guíxols Via Ferrada La Cala del Molí.

Furthermore, as a private trip I will focus on keeping you safe and making sure you have a blast!

If you are thinking about joining a via ferrata trip, this is your opportunity. Request to book this trip today, and let me guide you on this amazing journey.

About the guide

I am passionate about the mountains and the walls. Visit new places, and doing activities I discover new unforgettable sensations.

I live in a city located near Barcelona and the Pyrenees, which allows climbing and hiking in the Montserrat area and the mountains of the Pyrenees. Living in this place has helped me discover, from i was younger, many amazing places in this small country where I live.

I would like to show you some of the best routes and climbs in the Pyrenees and the Montserrat area. For one or more days. You will get a good memory of your stay in Catalonia, and you will surely want to visit us again.
