Via Ferrata trips – Spain

Conquer the Spanish summits with thrilling climbs and sublime landscapes

Spain’s rocky terrain in the north east and extreme south creates a natural playground for climbers of all levels, from first-timers to seasoned climbers. The steel cables, footholds and ladders of the via ferrata make it easier to navigate steep and rocky landscapes. Which means you don’t need to be a professional climber to conquer some of the great summits of Europe. Visit in autumn, winter and spring.

Marc was very polite and responsive to our questions and needs about directions and scheduling. Gave great advice about doing
via ferrata.
SABRINA SHAULIS for Via Ferrata Barcelona
Rafa, is a terrific guide. My family had a fantastic time on the via feratta route he took us
on in Archidona. I found Rafa to be professional, friendly, client-centered and safe. You will have to initiate the majority of the contact, but the experience is likely to be the highlight of your trip to southern Spain. I plan on recontacting Rafa when we are next in the area. He provides all the needed equipment.
My girlfriend and I had Marc as a Via Ferrata instructor. Even though we were new and a little slow,
not once did he rush or hurry us. All he focused on was safety and encouragement. This review will not do Marc justice. Truly an outstanding instructor
My husband and I visited Spain in August and made sure to add a via ferratta to our ‘to do’
list. Franscec was a wonderful guide. We loved his geology knowledge (we’re both geoloigsts), as well as his knowledge about the flora and fauna. The trip was fun, but we would have loved to have gone on a longer trip. Next time! We highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a fun outside adventure.

Hicimos la vía ferrata de Sant Feliu de Guíxols y todo fué perfecto. Marc transmite toda la seguridad y confianza
que necesitamos los primerizos. Además, dejarte guiar por alguien que ves que lleva las montañas y la naturaleza dentro enriquece más la experiencia. Ya estamos pensando en repetir porque nos ha enganchado!
I had one of the coolest experiences of my life on the Via Ferrata with Marc! He made sure that
we felt safe and let us choose the level of difficulty that we wanted. He also took pictures of us climbing which I thought was really nice! Highly recommend
Me and my boyfriend had a perfect climbing via ferrata experience with Marc as our guide in Sant Feliu de
Guíxols. As we have not been doing via ferrata in Spain before Marc made us feel safe about the whole thing. To find a guide that could customize the trip for just us two was exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him!
Marc was awesome! My wife and I couldn’t have asked for a better guide! He made everything so fun and
he was patient, had a great attitude, is knowledgeable about climbing and the Montserrat area, everything needed for an amazing experience!
Molt agraïda al marc per la seva feina! Va ser un dia espectacular vaig assolir molt més del que em
pensava i em vaig sentir molt ben acollida en tot moment. La seva tècnica docent és excelent i és molt pacient a la hora de explicar-te les coses. Gràcies Marc!!!
Alin Sitoe Diatta for Catalonia via ferrata for beginners
two friends and I did a via ferrata trip at Costa brava and he was a great guide!! He was
encouraging and a great teacher. He even picked us up from the train station! overall a really fun experience, I would highly recommend going on a climbing trip with Marc!!
It was amazing and unforgatable day in rocks near Barcelona. Very exсiting view during the all route. Marc is the
best guide ever, communicative, cheerfull and very responsive. Thanks him to share this greate experience with us. No fear anymore 😉
Both Explore-Share and Francesc gave us exactly the info we needed in a very short time, due to our program
in Barcelona and around. There were no delays of any kind in our collaboration with both of them.
Roxana Ursu for Via Ferrata Barcelona
It was great! We had a great day with Rafa, he is very relaxed. This Via Ferrata is a perfect
ferrata if you are a starter of not very experienced yet.
He realizado con Marc dos cursos: un curso de iniciación a vías ferratas y otro curso de iniciación en escalada
deportiva. La experiencia fue fenomenal. La adquisición de unos conocimientos y técnicas para progresar con autonomía y seguridad fue total. El trato muy cercano, atento y profesional. Ambos cursos duraron 2 días donde se exploró varios sectores de nuestras montañas de dificultad media, ganando seguridad y confianza tanto en el material como en mi misma. Eso sí, siempre bajo la atención, ayuda y supervisión de los monitores. 100% recomendables
Nothing but positive reviews, Carlos has a calm personality and he really pushed the pace for me, which I
appreciated. Would do this anytime again
The via ferrata at las damas was amazing! The route is easy for people who have rock climbing experience, but
also doable for everyone else!
Brian Huynh for Via Ferrata Barcelona
The via ferrata trip to Cala del Moli was amazing! Carlos was a great guide who was very kind and
supportive and able to manage the different ability levels in our group. Would highly recommend.
I had a terrific time. Carlos did an excellent job of organizing the day – making sure I had proper
equipment, and knew how it differed from climbing gear. He did a great job of assessing my skill level as a first time via ferrata/intermediate climber, and had me tackle increased challenges as my confidence grew. Because I finished more rapidly than planned, we also did an enjoyable hike. He was excellent company; I would recommend him to others, and happily  climb ir do via ferrata with Carlos guiding again. Carlos also made a great suggestion when he pointed me to Montserrat as a place to stay. Overall, just what I was looking for.
