Ready for an adventure in the mountains? With Via Ferrata you can experience the Romsdalen mountains in a unique and exciting way.
Via Ferrata, or “iron road” as it is called in Italian, is an adapted climbing route that employs fixed steel cables, rungs bridges and ladders. This gives you the chance to tackle the mountains without being a professional mountain climber.
In Romsdalsstigen you can choose between two Via Ferrata routes: Introveggen and Vestveggen. Both routes offer exciting challenges and a unique view of the spectacular mountains in Romsdalen. During the route, you move the cabin hooks one by one along a steel wire. Bridges and pegs have been installed in places where natural footholds are missing. Both routes start at Norwegian Tindesenter.
This route is suitable for most and perfect for those who want to try Via Ferrata for the first time.
