Climbing & Mountaineering Summer Outdoor Activities

If the thought of becoming a human mountain goat hanging off the side of a cliff terrifies you – don’t worry. There’s a starting point for everything, even conquering mountains. • First time: Via ferrata is a type of mountaineering up slopes equipped with steel ladders, steps and cables. It makes scaling a mountain way more accessible. Get the same views of Mt. Norquay as a peregrine falcon does – no experience required. • Rock star: The canyons and cliffs in the Canadian Rockies are what rock climbers’ dreams are made of. Breathtaking views meet heart-stopping multi-pitch routes up limestone and quartzite. Fledgling climber? Sign up for a climbing class. You’ve got to start somewhere.

Via Ferrata

Banff, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

In Banff National Park, a unique climbing experience awaits on Mount Norquay’s Via Ferrata. Italian for Iron Road, it takes hiking to a new level – and if you can climb a ladder you can climb the Via Ferrata. Ride up to the site on an open chairlift and watch for wildlife. Experienced guides at the top will provide an in-depth safety orientation and all the gear you need. Using an anchoring system of cables and ladders, you’ll conquer the pitches and cross a suspension bridge to be on top of the world.
