Via Ferrata

This is a sort of rock climb, secured all the way with a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically fixed to the rock. The cable can also be used as aid to climbing, and additional climbing aids, such as iron rungs (stemples), pegs, carved steps and even ladders and bridges. Via ferrata can vary in length from short routes taking just half day to long demanding alpine routes covering significant distance and altitude. Everyone with an average grade of fitness can manage the easy and intermediate ones. And if you are a bit of hights, we will stay close to you all the way up. The rest is easy to learn, when professionals teach you.

All the Via ferrata we have here are extremely panoramic, since they usually climb the mountains surrounding the lake. One of the best way to give your holiday a touch of adventure and to take that wonderful pic  you always wanted!
