Activity description

Do you love the thrills of heights, but not a fan of climbing? Then experiencing a via Ferrata is the perfect way to live the sensation of ascending rock walls whilst avoiding the risks of climbing!

In fact, you will be secured to cables, ladders and monkey bridges in order to be safely secured during the ascent and the descent! Everyone can do a via Ferrata: no previous climbing experience is required, but depending on the difficulty it may be required to be in good physical shape. 

During the entire excursion, you will be accompanied by Jacopo, a certified and friendly Italian mountain guide that has done these routes a 1000 times! Jacopo speaks Italian and English and most importantly, he will ensure you have great fun in a safe environment!

The Via Ferrata on Lake Garda offers incredible views over the glimpsing water and majestic mountain in the horizon! Jacopo offers you the most beautiful Via Ferrata in the area, choose the one that fits best your preferences! 
- Via Ferrata Cima Capi

1
Via Ferrata di Cima Capi

This Via Ferrata overlooks Lake Ledro and Lake Garda, offering great views over the two. It's perfect in summer days. The route isn't technical and is open to everyone in good shape.

Jacopo will first get to know you and explain further details on the activity, such as pauses and itinerary. You'll later reach the beginning of the Via Ferrata by car. This equipped path is very exposed and proceeds to offer glimpses of rare beauty of the lake and the Sarca Valley and the vertical walls below. There Jacopo will teach you the best climbing methods and techniques: time to start.  The ascent takes between 1h 30 and 2h, and on top, you will enjoy an incredible view!

Via Ferrata Rio Sallagoni

This great Via Ferrata was recently equipped with strong iron rungs and metal cables. It climbs a ravine excavated by the artistic hand of the torrent Sallagoni. The numerous passages from one side to another make this Via Ferrata a fun game of suspension! The vegetation and the torrent keep the route fresh, even in the hottest summer. 

This Via Ferrata is ideal for kids and families since it doesn't require big physical efforts and it won't trigger your fear of heights. The via Ferrata will last around 2h.

Via Ferrata Cengia dei Contrabbandieri

A legendary route that passes through a natural ledge overhanging Lake Garda. It was used in the past as a route for contraband traffickers: that's the origin of the name! Nowadays it is possible to follow this ancient route in total safety thanks to the spikes that protect the most exposed points. The route is a natural balcony with incredible views over Lake Garda, Malcesine, Riva del Garda and Monte Baldo!

In numerous passages this route presents an intermediate difficulty: therefore, previous experience is strongly recommended. This Via Ferrata takes about 2 hours.
