More Info

Running from east to west in between the the Graian Alps in the north and the Cottian Alps in the south, Val di Susa is one of the longest valleys in all of Italy and as a result, boasts plenty of incredible via ferrata options from which to choose.

Among the most popular via ferrata options in the valley is the Orrido di Foresto, which takes climbers up along the walls of a narrow gorge in the valley. The highlights of the climb include passing by various waterfalls and natural pools.

Another popular option is the Sacra di San Michele, near Sant Ambrogio di Torino. This route is technically very easy but quite long. The route leads from the valley floor up to Mount Pirchiriano (962 meters/3,156 feet). The views from the top are breathtaking, however, and well-worth the 3 hours it takes to ascend.
