Via ferrata

Climbing for everyone!

Gorge Alpine via ferrata

The spectacular via ferrata from Saas Fee to Saas Grund is by far the most beautiful and thrilling way of connecting the two villages. The trail passes through natural canyons, caves, water falls and alpine vegetation. In addition, you will experience zip lines, suspension bridges and pendulum swings with one rappel at the end of the tour. For hundreds of years people only dared glimpse into the depth of the Gorge Alpine. Nowadays we glide down its center via iron cables, pegs and ladders. While perhaps being intimidating at the start, butterfly-filled stomachs and wobbly knees will give way to smiles and screams of triumph while overcoming the forces of gravity through natural terrain. The Gorge Alpine is the event for groups, clubs and families.   +  Easy tour +  No special fitness requirements   Equipment included: All participants are provided with a helmet, climbing harness and via ferrata equipment.   Variations:   "The Big One" (Entire tour) When Monday, Wednesday, Friday or on request Duration 3-4hrs Price CHF 110 per person "The Lower Thrill" (2nd half only) When on request Duration 2-3hrs Price CHF 85 per person   "The Teaser" (1st half only) When on request Duration 1.5-2hrs Price CHF 50 per person (Group special from 15 persons on - prices on request)
