In 1843, the first Via Ferrata was built on the Dachstein, in Austria, for touristic purposes. Through the use of iron pins and steps, as well as a so-called “lifeline”, difficult climbing passages could be protected throughout and made the climbing somewhat more accessible to non-climbers.

But the history of via ferratas dates back a long way:

Via ferrata-like ladders and wooden constructions have been known in the Alps for centuries, and were increasingly used as farm roads to access villages and hard-to-reach areas, as well as for the forestry industry. The modern via ferrata era began with the establishment of world war via ferratas, which were built in South Tyrol, Dolomites. These are nowadays increasingly used for tourist purposes and are very popular as an introduction to the world of climbing for people of all ages.

We plan our via ferrata adventures carefully and adventurously so that we can enjoy an unforgettable experience full of breathtaking views, exercise, and fun on the rock. Some cantons where we conduct our tours are: Ticino, Uri, Bern, Obwalden and many more.

Morning or afternoon

From the meeting point we reach on foot the via ferrata that we have chosen as a tour. On site, we get an introduction/repetition of the securing and climbing techniques and combine them with a lot of movement, sun, fun! Depending on the number of participants, we pick an appropriate via ferrata so that all will be able to climb independently via ferratas at the end of the day.
