Spectacular via ferratas in the midst of fourthousanders

Whether young or old, advanced or beginner – the via ferratas of the Swiss Alps and mountain landscape provide climbing routes for all levels of skill and difficulty.

If you are in search of an adrenaline kick, you should visit the Eggishorn in the Swiss high mountains. Its via ferrata offers a fantastic view over the surrounding fourthousanders of Aletschhorn, Jungfrau and Mönch.

Moreover, the Engadin and its two ice tracks offer two of the most exciting tours for brave climbers. An alternative is the via ferrata Leukenbad that leads through the southeast drop-offs of the Daubenhorn. With almost 1000 meters of altitude it is the longest via ferrata in Switzerland.

Tälisstock: Switzerland’s oldest via ferrata

While via ferratas where already constructed in Germany and Austria during the middle of the 19th century, the Swiss only inaugurated their first climbing route in 1993 at Tälisstock.

In over 600 m of height outdoor adventurers can enjoy the climbing passages at Tälisstock. Despite his age, the route does not have to hide behind younger via ferratas as the impressive passages, airy crossings and steep upswings guarantee thrill and unforgettable fun.
