If you love to balance and climb along steep mountain scarps and you are free from giddiness, than Switzerland’s via ferratas are a perfect destination you The climbing passages at Tälisstock, Eggishorn or in Engadin provide plenty of fun, excitement and adrenaline rushes in front of the breathtaking Swiss mountain view.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
