Unusual klettersteig in that it goes down rather than up. This means you have to look where you put your feet and so there is no avoiding looking down 600m to the Lauterbrunnen valley floor in places. Generally it's not a technically difficult klettersteig but...More

My wife and I consider ourselves to be pretty adventurous/outdoorsy type people. We did most of the "exciting activities" in the area- paragliding, mountain carts, etc. The Via Ferrara was the absolute best! Rent a helmet, harness, and gloves from the nearby sports shop and...More

Grindelwald Sports, This is by no means a way to criticize the experience we gained from the Via Ferrata in Murren. The scenery and route is amazing. However the service and lack of training we received by your representatives on Wednesday 16th 2017 left an...More

I was there with a college and it was a real pleasure to do this via ferrata. It is about 2,5 to 3 hours, no fee, and really good secured, so not really difficult. However, you are at some points really in the wall, with...More

Loved every minute. Our guide was pretty quiet and didn't interact with us much, but he certainly made sure everyone was safe, which is all we really needed. No real physical strength required, but you have to be stout of heart and not afraid of...More
