Via Ferrata - Fixed Cable Climbing

Banff's NEW “Via Ferrata” (Italian for the Iron Road), is a must do experience for thrill seekers. It’s a different kind of mountaineering – led by a certified guide, you’ll climb your way up the cliffs above the Banff Mt Norquay ski area. Guided by a series of cables, fixed anchors, ladders and a suspension bridge. The thrill is there, but so are safety procedures. No climbing experience necessary. We recommend that you are physically fit enough to climb a ladder and bring a spirit for adventure.
