Originating in the Alps during World War I to enable troops to cross mountains, a Via Ferrata is a climbing route like no other. Metal steps, suspension bridges and zip wires make it one of the most adrenaline-filled climbing activities worldwide. Now Via Ferrata has come to Cornwall, so you can enjoy the ultimate high wire adventure as you journey across historic granite quarries on an epic challenge.
You'll scale cliff faces, take on the high wire bridge - a 70m long single strand of wire stretching over the water, tackle high challenges and finish by soaring through the air on one of the most scenic zip wires in Cornwall. You'll be clipped into a safety cable the whole time, meaning you can push your limits in a completely safe environment whilst making amazing memories!
This is perfect for adventuresome children aged 8+ through to full on adrenaline junkies - and climbing pros can choose to forgo the metal rungs for the added challenge of moving though the course using the natural rock crevices.
