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. Ride up to the site on an open chairlift and watch for wildlife. Experienced guides at the top will provide a 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 literally on top of the world.
