Climbing in Via Ferrata

Via Ferrata is Italian and means originally  "iron road". This has become a popular way of climbing all over the world! In odda we have two adventurous routes!

Via Ferrata is easier than rock climbing. The routes goes through fixed bolts, clamps, cables and steps that function like ladders - some places in the steep rock wall. The steeps are predictable, and previous climbing experience is normally not necessary to manage to do a Via Ferrata.  The activity requires normal psychical shape and not being afraid of heights!

We have an easier and a more challenging Via Ferrata in Odda. We recommend you do the easiest and shortest route first, before you consider if you want a bigger and more exhausting challenge. Both routes are going through historical landscape that tells a story about the Norwegian industry adventure that started around year 1900.

All necessary climbing gear is provided. for more information.
