But first of all, a question needs to be asked: what is a Via Ferrata?
Signifying “railroad” in Italian, a via ferrata is a sporting route arranged on a rock face. Via ferrata also refers to the sport of traversing this type of route. It’s halfway between climbing and hiking. Practitioners of this activity are ferristes.
The via ferrata is equipped with metal elements such as cables, ladders or ramps to ensure the safety of ferristes. Depending on the difficulty of the route, monkey bridges, Nepalese bridges, footbridges or beams are installed to facilitate their progress.
The via ferrata allows practitioners to gain height and, along a playful route, to enjoy the exceptional panorama offered by the location.
