What Is The Via Ferrata?

Give your team an unforgettable thrill while encouraging your employees to seek challenge in the great outdoors. Via Ferrata means “Iron Road” in Italian. By using fixed cables, ladders, and bridges, even beginner climbers can safely ascend spectacular routes in Beijing’s Northern Hills.

How Does Via Ferrata work?

Each Via Ferrata climber is equipped with a harness and set of lanyards that connect them to cable on the wall. The climbers then use the cable to traverse the route. A safe method of climbing, Via Ferrata allows enthusiasts of all ages to experience the thrill of rock climbing. What better way for a team to bond than by conquering a rock face and enjoying otherwise unreachable spectacular views?

We also offer a diverse range of other fully immersive team building experiences.
