Experience Via Ferrata
Fear of Heights
Along the steel cable, step by step closer to the summit
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.
The perfect offer if you want to experience a via ferrata tour in alpine surroundings.

Halfway up we enjoy a fortifying snack before continuing our tour. Depending on the chosen via ferrata, the ascent can take up to 5 hours. Once at the top, it’s time to enjoy the scenery and view, as well as snacks and drinks that we provide.
