A via ferrata (Italian for 'iron road') is a mountain route equipped with fixed cables, stemples, ladders and bridges and which are accessible to people with a wide range of climbing abilities. Whilst the easiest routes are relatively straightforward, more challenging routes are best climbed with a guide to avoid mistakes in handling the safety gear. The confidence of knowing the safety issue is taken care of leaves you to enjoy the stunning scenery and high level walkways.
A head for heights is an absolute must as some stretches of via ferrata can be very exposed, but with a guide these are conquered in perfect safety. If you've ever considered or enjoyed scrambling over rocks or tackling an adventure course via ferrata could be the perfect holiday activity for you! In the same way an adventure course has both a physical and mental component a via ferrata will be as much a test of your adaptability - it's both fun and exhilarating!
