Via ferratas, what's it all about ?
Via ferratas have existed in the Alps for centuries, first they were used to help villages connect to their high pastures, then during the first world war, they were used for military purposes and now these metal ladders and "irkon paths" have become a fabulous way to discover all things vertical.
Our experienced guides will take you climb the mountains in a whole new way, suspended in the air using iron cables and ladders ! Easier than traditional climbing, our selection of trips offers something for everyone. Some trips will even give you the chance to brush up or discover mountain climbing techniques.
Via ferratas are the perfect way to access to immense rugged rock faces and see the mountains from a different perspective. Gorgeous hikes will enable us to discover and learn about native flora and fauna in an epic setting.
Where are we heading for ?
We've concocted unique via ferrota trips in Italy (ever heard of the fabulous Dolomites ?), in the Vercors, in Tyrol and in Sardinia - as many different and attractive via ferrata destinations as you can imagine. Steep traverses and itineraries along spectacular mountain ridges, we have something to satisfy everyone. On some alpine itineraries you'll even discover or re-discover and use some climbing and mountaineering techniques.
What gear do I need to pack ?
You'll need specific gear for via ferratas: a comfortable harness and helmet as well as a via ferrata kit. The via ferrata kit has two energy absorbing lunges and two carabiners.
