Highlights

 
     

    Mount Forato (1,230m) is a wonderful peak in the Apuan Alps of Northern Italy. Even though the peak is not enormous in the way most people think of mountains, it is still lovely. And when you see it along with the gorgeous landscape of Tuscany all around it, the peak looks even better.

    On this trip, we have planned a fantastic adventure that is perfect for the whole family, especially children. This adventure is via ferrata. For anybody who has had the opportunity to enjoy this unique experience, you already know how amazing it is. And we are glad to offer that experience to children, so they too can enjoy it.

    We believe that climbing is a great activity for people who are looking to improve their fitness. We also believe it helps improve a person’s memory, motor skills, concentration, discipline, coordination, and many other important skills. Thus making it a great teaching tool for children. However, when it comes to activities like this, especially when children are involved, safety is absolutely the first priority. And we’ll see to it that you, and your children, are safe at all times during this exciting activity.

    Of course, this wonderful adventure is not just about learning. It is also a great deal of fun, for the whole family! You will get to hear your kids laughing as they make their way around the ridges of Mount Forato, while also gaining appreciation for how beautiful the peak, along with the natural landscape around it, really is.

    If you are looking for a thrilling outdoor experience that you and your children can enjoy, then this trip is definitely for you. So send us a request, and enjoy a day of via ferrata at Mount Forato in Tuscany, Italy. 

    We also offer a one-day, private, basic rock climbing course in the Falesia de Monsummano area of Tuscany.

    What People are Saying about Prorock Outdoor Team

     

    I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼

    Franco was a very professional guide. If you are not familiar with the trails in the Apuan Alps I highly recommend you hire this company - for ease of mind and safety. I am a former mountain guide in the United States.
