Discover the best via ferratas in Switzerland


Via Ferrata Pinut

As a special challenge lures the historic via ferrata Pinut, which also allows inexperienced but sure-footed and vertigo-free climbers the climb to the Flimserstein plateau. Thrill without risk, and a fantastic view of the mountains of Flims.

Great Daubenhorn via ferrata

The Daubenhorn via ferrata is the longest in Switzerland, graded K5 (extremely difficult). The itinerary leads almost entirely along vertical rock faces, and features many memorable highlights including a cave with a waterfall.

Via ferrata Gabi

The via ferrata Gabi is located below Simplon Dorf in the Gondo Gorge. The short but sporty via ferrata is classified with difficulty T3-T4.

Via ferrata Schweifinen - Route A

The via ferrata Schweifinen (fixed-cable climb) leads high above the roofs of Zermatt. The three sections – A, B and C – require different levels of ability. Route A is suitable for families with children from the age of 10.

Via ferrata of Evolène

The via ferrata of Evolène consists of three tracks, and offers a great point of view on the Dent Blanche glacier and the Pigne d'Arolla.

Via ferrata Schweifinen - Route C

Route C of the via ferrata (fixed-cable climb) high above the roofs of Zermatt is often tackled straight after routes A and B. This requires a high level of fitness, but it is also the great attraction of the climb.

Via Ferrata in the Mauvoisin gorge

This via ferrata crosses the deep gorges of Dranse from the Mauvoisin dam. The first part (Saxifrage) is accessible to everyone.  The second part called Tichodrome (equivalent to the Eurasian Crag Martin), is suitable for athletic climbers.

Belvédère via ferrata

The Nax/Mont-Noble via ferrata in the Val d'Hérens is considered to be one of the least difficult climbs of this kind in the region, and will give you a fantastic view over the Rhône valley.
