Via Ferrata of the Canyon
Combines safely rock climbing, climbing and walking, intended for those with no mountaineering experience.
Via ferratas are an accessible and safe way to climb mountains for people who do not have any technical experience, combining climbing and walking on the rock.
The walls is equipped with a steel cable fixed with anchors, from the foot of the track to the top, along with steps, stairs and bridges strategically placed to facilitate the ascent.
The tour ends with the crossing of a zip line to enjoy fantastic views of the valley, the mountains, the glaciers and the majestic range of Mount Fitz Roy.
The peculiarity of this Via Ferrata is its "continuous insurance" system, through which the participants are linked to the cable with a special device placed on the harness from the beginning to the end of the route, making this activity a unique experience, safe and fun!
