The differences in the organisation as well as in the difficulty of the via ferrata trails will turn a tour in the Stubaital into an exciting and varied adventure.

What exactly is a via ferrata trail?

A via ferrata trail is a climbing trail along natural rock formations, secured with iron ladders, iron steps and steel cables. Hazardous hiking trail passages have been secured with steel cables for a long time – forming the basis of today’s via ferrata trails. The originally Italian term via ferrata (plural: vie ferrate) means iron way, by the way.

To explore these secured trails you need a climbing safety set. A climbing safety set consists of a helmet and a harness and features a Y- or V-type rope safety system. For climbing beginners, it is advisable to make the first steps under supervision of a professional mountain guide. Equipment can be rented at many places.
