Via ferrata (Italian for "railway") is a way of moving along walls and various more or less vertical obstacles, using equipment similar to that used for rock climbing. The difference is that the walls are equipped with rungs, bridges and ladders, and a lifeline is placed along the entire length of the wall for self-belay. Originally created in Austria in the 19th century, it was in Italy during the 1st World War that it acquired its nobility. Today, as a form of sports tourism, it is an excellent complement to climbing, offering the same thrills and breathtaking views, but without the same level of technical commitment.

Located in the heart of a larch forest and bathed in the early morning sun, the Marcellinas route immerses you in a warm, green atmosphere. An aerial route with a slightly steep start (but avoidable for those who want to warm up more gently), you will have the opportunity to progress along the cliff, equipped just enough to enjoy the feel of the rock and a view immersed in the scent of the forest. With a reputation for not being too difficult, but with an athletic temperament, this activity is suitable for children from the age of 12 and for families who want to share an heighty adventure. It's the perfect activity to do in the morning before taking a dip in the cool waters of the lake or getting on a mountain bike to race through the trees.

We provide all the safety equipment you need (harness, lanyards, helmet) and our qualified guides are on hand to help you progress smoothly and offer advice to ensure that fun is the main focus of your outing.
