For those who like to travel in the mountains & love hiking, but would also like to visit steeper areas, via ferratas are ideal adventures.
Secured onto a wire cable with a climbing harness and karabiner, ascend vertically up steep cliffs, exposed ridges and deep abysses. Steep walls, which were previously reserved for serious climbers, are now accessible to those with a good head for heights thanks to the safety of wire cables, iron ladders, iron pins and treads. Compared to classic climbing, via ferrata routes can be conquered with far less equipment, less risk and a shorter learning phase.
In Vorarlberg there are a multitude of different via ferratas: whether challenging or easy, in the valleys or high-Alpine terrain – there is an appropriate adventure for every ability and taste. Sure-footedness and a head for heights are prerequisites. Naturally, guided via ferrata tours are offered in many regions. Vorarlberg’s mountain guides would be happy to accompany you and ensure the necessary safety.
At the Vorarlberg tour portal, via ferrata climbers will find detailed information on tour planning. With the free Vorarlberg app “Holiday and Recreation” (German only), tour info is also accessible on the go.
