A Via Ferrata (Via=route Ferrata = metal or iron) is a route "built" on a rock face which has been equipped with specific elements (cables, steps, ladders etc) in order to help the climber in his progression and to maximise security. A Via Ferrata is a combination between trekking and rock climbing. The routes are accessible to all those that are capable of climbing a ladder and that are not frightened of heights. The Via Ferratas in Andorra are usually built in beautiful and spectacular surroundings. Not all climbs are equipped with just rungs. You need to be in fairly good physical condition in order to climb a Via Ferrata but no rock climbing experience is necessary. Arriving at the summit gives you an incredible sense of joy and proudness; a wonderful feeling of accomplishment that, up until now, only rock climbers enjoyed!
