What to Expect

Via Ferrata, translating from Italian to ‘iron path’, secures mountain scrambles with a continuous cable fixed into rock, enabling thrilling ascents for novices. Equipped with harnesses and lanyards, participants move as a group, navigating natural rocks, ladders, and rungs. At Honister, the UK’s pioneering Via Ferrata, delve into history within the last working Slate Mine, treading the paths of Cumbrian Miners while exploring modern slate extraction techniques.

Historically linked to World War 1, Via Ferrata evolved from troop use of fixed ropes and ladders in the Italian Dolomites. Post-war, these routes expanded across the Alps, transforming into mountaineering challenges.
