Via Ferrata

Give in to the ultimate adventure

Hands-On Adventure Above the Clouds.

Feel on top of the world. Exhilarate your senses. Experience views of Banff rarely seen.

Italian for “iron road”, Via Ferrata is an assisted climbing experience along four breathtaking routes on the cliffs above Mt Norquay. Climb ladders, cross suspension bridges, and marvel at the grandeur of the mountain vistas that surround you.

The views are wild, but you’re safe and secure throughout your journey. Led by a highly experienced ACMG-certified guide, you wear a harness that is always attached to the mountain’s steel cable pathway, securing you to the rock at all times.

So leave your worries behind, live in the moment and get set to explore!
