If you’ve always wanted to try this activity, join me on this one-day via ferrata course and let me show you how it’s done!

We’ll meet at my rental shop in Prague and from there we’ll drive to some of the best via ferrata spots in the Czech Republic. We can choose between the Lusatian Mountains, Shepherd’s Wall (Decin) or Water Gate (Semily).

You need to have a reasonable fitness level to take this via ferrata course. However, even children can participate as no special skills are necessary.  It’s a really fun activity to share as a family! Moreover, if you come along with your children, I’ll even give you a discount.

The first via ferrata routes, equipped with ladders and cable, were built during the First War World. The goal was to move troops across the mountains in the safest possible way. Since then, locals all across Europe built more modern routes and the activity became very popular among mountain lovers!

Apart from this via ferrata course, I offer different mountains programs in the Czech Republic. If you are visiting the area during the winter, check out my ice climbing course in the Elbe Valley.

So join me on this fun day of via ferrata. Bring your family along and share a great day in the mountains! Contact me with any questions you may have and I’ll be happy to help.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide


I'm a UIAGM certified guide, skitouring-freeride and heliski guide. I'm a lifelong skier, climber and mountaineer, born in Prachovske skaly, a famous sandstone climbing area in the Czech Republic.
I've personally participated in 13 expeditions to 8thousander peaks and stood 5 times on an 8000m peak. I have guided guests on all continents (7 summits, etc..) in numerous treks, climbing or skitouring expeditions.
I run a guiding company in Prague and work for Patagonia, SKI TRAB and ABS avalanche backpacks. I spend my winter guiding in the Northern hemisphere, including heliski in Lappland (SWE), ski touring in Morocco or enjoying the best powder snow on earth in Japan.
The rest of the time I'm on expeditions in Nepal or South America and I spend most of the summer climbing in my hometown or guiding in the Alps.
I like Czech beer and food, passionate guests and jokes. If I'm not available my team will guide you instead.
