Intended Schedule:


Day 1 - 09:00

From the meeting point we reach the via ferrata on foot, which we have chosen as a tour. The hike takes place in alpine ambience and can last up to two hours, depending on the via ferrata we will climb. We get an introduction/repetition of the securing and climbing techniques and combine them with a lot of movement, sun, fun!

​​​​​​​Once at the top, it's time to enjoy the scenery and view, as well as snacks and drinks that we provide.

Depending on the number of participants we will choose a suitable via ferrata, so that everyone will be able to climb Via Ferratas independently at the end of the day. Course end approx. 18:00.
