Iron path – Via Ferrata

Climbing / Tourist program


Both the phrase and the activity come from the Dolomites in Italy.
Safe climbing requires technical equipment: harness, shock-absorbing bridle, helmet and gloves.
In the Red Lake tourist destination there is only one such built-in iron climbing road, which bears the name of Wild Ferenc, and is built on the south-western side of the Suhardul Mic/Kis-Cohárd. Its total length is 200 meters and the level difference is 170 meters.
Nearby there is another such ironed climbing path in the Munticelu/Munticseli nature reserve called Astragalus with a total length of 700 meters, divided into 5 climbing paths and the level difference of the main route is 285 meters.
Participation requirements: minimum height 1.6 meters and minimum weight 40 kilograms (below 40 kilograms, the shock-absorbing bridle is not activated).
In these programs we provide: seat belt, shock-absorbing bridle, safety helmet, guide (cave rescue specialist).
The program can be held from April to November, depending on weather conditions.
Before each tour, participants complete a declaration of their own responsibility and we recommend accident insurance.
