To help you climb or traverse a vertical landscape safely and securely, via ferratas are protected climbing routes built with cables, bridges, ladders, ziplines and more. They are especially popular in the Alps, where they originated to help troops cross the mountain during World War I – via ferrata translates to “iron path” in Italian. However, due to their increasing popularity, today they can be found around the world. While routes range in difficulty and intensity, many are appropriate for beginning climbers, including kids, and previous experience is not always required. Booking a qualified mountain guide will ensure you have a safe and rewarding experience. Plus, your guide will often provide all the equipment you need for the adventure.
