Mt. Forato, Tuscany, Guided Via Ferrata for Children

We wanted to try out via ferrate already for a long time. This was our first one and we were going with kids (9 and 11 y.o.) so we decided to find a guide that could accompany us. Pasquale was a perfect guide - experienced, interesting and caring. We felt safe and had a great time! Thank you!

Sarca Valley guided via ferrata day trip near Garda Lake

Giorgio was a very experienced guide who made us feel safe throughout the via ferrata. He was also very kind and professional with us. The via ferrata Susatti at Cima Capi was an amazing experience and I am so glad we did it. The climb can be quite challenging but is within everyone's reach. The view over the Garda Lake is magnificent. I really recommend this experience!
