Via Ferrata


“Mountaineering is more than sport.  It´s a passion!"

Hermann Buhl (Austrian mountaineer, 1924 – 1957)


Via Ferrata literally means “iron path,” originating from the metal ladders used by the military in WWI to navigate in the mountains. Today climbing a via ferrata is an exhilarating way to enjoy the magnificence and sheer magnitude of the mountains.


In the awesome environment of the Cretan Asteroussia Mountains, protected on a rock wall high above the valley floor and the sea, you will be stopped in your tracks by amazing views while you learn valuable mountain safety skills. Completely protected, attached to a system of anchored cables while you climb, you’ll enjoy vistas typically reserved only for mountaineers!


Just try this fascinating sport and experience all those overwhelming feelings! You will love it!

Our Via Ferrata is suitable for most abilities and ages (>13) but you do need to be reasonably fit and healthy for the Xtreme.
