What is a Via Ferrata?
The name Via Ferrata comes from Italy, where they built an “iron road” in the mountains during the first world war. The essence of a modern via Ferrata is a steel cable that runs along the route and is periodically (every 3 to 10 meters (9.8 to 33 ft)) fixed to the rock. Using a via Ferrata kit the climber can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall.
Loen Active offer guided via ferrata tours for 5 to 120 persons.
