Leggi le recensioni

From € 50

The via ferrata Rio sallagoni climbs an ancient escape route under the Drena castle. Climbing the canyon alongside and suspended above a stream,  you find yourself in a mystical atmosphere with a continuous alternation of shadow and light. During the walk you will cross two tibetan bridges which test your sense of balance!

In the top ten of the german magazine specialized in via ferrata, this path is very impressive and the only one which climbs in a canyon hidden from the eyes of other tourists.

Always cool and fresh even in summer this via ferrata is short but not easy, suitable for all adults, teenagers and children of at least 9 years old.

    We had a great hike and climb, going on our first two ferratas. Gino is a very friendly and reliable guide. We highly recommend him.

    We were a family of 4 with children of 10 and 13. We found Gino’s website and booked from the UK because we were only passing through this area on the one day. The ferrata was just right for us, fairly challenging for our 10 year old and enough of a challenge for the rest of us that we were pleased with ourselves when we got to the top! Gino was very patient and encouraging. His English was good and he told us about the area too…
