The Via Ferrata is a guided activity with an experienced instructor.

  • What is it? Starting in the Launch where participants have lots of opportunity to get used to the special equipment and try some of the easier challenges with the instructors assistance.
    The fun continues with a cave tunnel section; popping out into the alpinists hut and climbing out of the window, high above the Main Hall, before ascending a series of ladders and wobbly plank walks! From here it’s a big swing out across the slab and scramble over some beams to reach the final plunge down 3 stories on the SkyJump!
  • Who for? Perfect for friends or families with older children. No experience needed, but it is one of our more challenging and exhilarating activities!
  • Choose from: The Launch or the full Via-Ferrata!
