Via Ferrata

Give in to the ultimate adventure

EXPLORER

  • $149
  • 2.5hr round trip
  • 1km distance
  • 2235m above sea level

Step out of your comfort zone and try our Explorer route. Spend some time with your guide, get introduced to the equipment, head up a few pitches and cross the suspension bridge. This is a great choice for those who are slightly limited on time, or looking for an introduction to Via Ferrata.

RIDGEWALKER

  • $199
  • 4hr round trip
  • 1.4km distance
  • 2300m above sea level

To get a greater feel for heights, exposure and the full Via Ferrata experience, become a Ridgewalker! This half-day excursion takes you high up on the Norquay cliffs, climbing the Memorial, Sunrise and Vista buttresses – and of course, traversing the suspension bridge.

SKYLINE

  • $249
  • 5hr round trip
  • 2.5km distance
  • 2450m above sea level

Launched in 2017, Skyline includes an exciting high traverse on a sheer rock wall and crosses an “airy” 55m suspension bridge. Your effort is amply rewarded at the top, with outstanding panoramic views where the Rocky Mountains stretch out in every direction. With Banff as a backdrop over 1000 metres below, enjoy the uber-scenic ridgecrest descent as it leads you back to the Cliffhouse Bistro to celebrate your mountaineering accomplishments.

SUMMITEER

  • $299
  • 6hr round trip
  • 3.2km distance
  • 2450m above sea level

The Summiteer is the apex experience for Norquay’s Via Ferrata, and the longest of all 4 routes. A continuation of the Skyline route, this 6-hour adventure traverses the alpine ridge and crosses an additional three-wire suspension bridge over an impressive couloir. Be awed by the breathtaking 360-degree views of the Canadian Rockies as you enjoy a well-earned (and included) lunch on the East Summit of Mt Norquay. After your tour, unwind and share in the stoke at the the Cliffhouse Bistro with a beverage and appetisers – also included in your tour.
