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.
