A fun way to climb - without experience

What is a Via Ferrata?

Via ferrata, Italian for “iron path”, is a steel cable climbing route affixed to a mountainside. The cable is taut and secured to the mountain face every 3-30 ft.  The first routes were utilized during WWI to move troops around the Dolomites in Italy. Modern via ferratas are popular across the Alps as a safe way to experience high mountain climbing and are gaining popularity around the world.

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge provides helmets, lanyards, and expert guides to lead you through the course.
