Absolutely loved our day out doing the Via Ferratta in El Chorro. Our guide Alejandro was brilliant at talking us through each step and the safety was always priority. Such beautiful scenery and the zip wire was the best!. Would definitely recommend. 😃 Thanks for a great day out brilliant memories to cherish.



Antonio was a great guide! Awesome experience all around. The via ferrata trail was moderate and had great views



My partner and I had an amazing day! It was our first Via Ferrata and Antonio told us everything we should know to climb this track, and even more. He was very friendly and funny, we would definitely recommend to join Antonio on a guided Ferrata! The track itself was moderately demanding for us, we are both fit and did not experience any strength difficulties during the track. We felt safe all the time. The views were stunning!



Amazing experience with an experienced guide.
