More Info

Belgium is a country in northern Europe, bordering France to the west and south, Luxembourg and Germany to the south-southeast, and the Netherlands to the north. The shore of the North Sea lies just beyond Bruges to the northwest. While it may not have the international appeal of the Alps, Belgium has an array of outcropping, slabs, and rock walls that have turned it into a country known for remarkable rock climbing and via ferrata. This activity uses protected climbing routes to assist climbers and give them access to more challenging geographic and geologic areas. It can combine climbing with vertical sections, zip lines, suspended bridges, abseiling, and more. Generally lasting no more than a day, most via ferrata routes can be completed within a few hours.  Most routes are found in Wallonia, including Landelies, Freyr, Pont-a-Lesse, and Grands Malades.

Belgium has a maritime climate that is stable and temperate. Cool summers define the country, making via ferrata ideal during these months. Winter is fairly moderate, balanced by the North Atlantic and North Sea. Further south, where climbing and via ferrata are popular, the maritime influence is mild.

How to Get There

Brussels is the main point of entry for Belgium. Flying into its international airport will get you close to the via ferrata routes best known in the country. Namur and Landelies are both within an hour or so of Brussels, so a quick bus, train, or drive can get you to the rock in no time.
