Step out of your comfort zone and join your guide on the mountain on the Explorer Route climbing up to 2,235 metres at the Mt Norquay Via Ferrata.
Road Construction Notice: The access road to Mt Norquay is currently under construction and will cause 10-15 minute delays, please allow extra time when planning your transport. Construction is estimated to be completed by mid July.
On this guided high-alpine climbing experience you’ll be introduced to the equipment, ascend a few pitches, and cross the suspension bridge.
Rest assured, no experience is required as this is a guided experience and the Norquay Via Ferrata is designed to accommodate both beginners seeking a taste of the alpine and those who already have a little alpine experience.
This 2.5 hour loop takes you up to 2,235 metres above sea level and is great for those who are slightly limited on time, or are looking for an introduction to Via Ferrata. The Mt Norquay Via Ferrata is conveniently located a five minute drive from the Banff townsite on the cliffs above the Mt Norquay Ski Resort.
