The ultimate experience high above the David Thompson highway

West of Nordegg Alberta, Via Ferrata is the best new way to get into the vertical world. See the azure blue of Abraham Lake. Feel the breeze and eat lunch in the sky. Be protected and guided all the way.  We want to take you on an adventure you’ll never forget! 

What is Via Ferrata?

Italian for “Iron Path”. Climbers ascend a route of steel rungs permanently affixed to the mountain. A shock absorbing lanyard is attached by the climber to a steel cable running parallel to the rungs to protect from a fall.

Enjoyable For All Experience Levels

Enjoyable climbing for everyone with spectacular views of Abraham Lake the whole way. This was the very first in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains! A great place to start if you’ve never climbed Via Ferrata before.

What do I need?

Any Ferrata specific equipment will be provided. Every climber should have: 

Water (min 1L) and Additional Snacks

Mountain clothing (multiple layers recommended)

Backpack (approx. 30L or large enough to bring layers, food, water and any other desired items)

Footwear (ideally mountaineering boots or solid hiking boots)
