Beginner's Via Ferrata


This is a trip focused on adventure, fun, and thrills. From our base in the Rhone valley, we will choose different Via-Ferrata to stretch and challenge the group and ensure there is plenty of time for cheese, wine and chocolate (or ice cream).

We have 20 years plus each experience of running trips in the mountains and living in Switzerland. We are originally English but have lived here for many years. Our team are all UIMLA International Mountain Leaders or UIAGM Mountain Guides. This is an ideal trip to meet new people and have a new experience.

Friday: Arrival Day
We will meet you at Martigny train station at 6 pm. Then transfer to the accommodation, a local dortoir, for a sumptuous Swiss dinner to meet and get to know the rest of the group and the guides. You'll also get an initial briefing and instruction on how to use equipment safely.

Saturday: Sports Via Ferrata
Your guides will choose a Via Ferrata for the group. This will likely last a couple of hours. We will then likely enjoy an alpine hostelry and a relaxing walk in the alps or other activity if possible such as an abseil or wild swim. Return to accommodation for dinner and drinks (secret local Swiss wine available).

Sunday: Via Ferrata II
With numerous Via Ferrata within driving distance, your guides will choose another suitable objective to satisfy your thrills before returning you to the train station in time to get home.
