INTRODUCTION TO VIA FERRATA

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

- summiting peaks by Via Ferrata routes which would be otherwise impossible - learning skills and techniques to feel confident to tackle the routes - personal achievement and satisfaction - great sharing experiences with like minded people  

What did you think of your group leader?

Excellent. They were thoroughly professional, offering well planned skills and technique training. They were always encouraging and motivating, and very focused on individual strengths and needs. They also had a great sense of fun which helped us succeed. Paulo 'Be happy!' still rings in my ears!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you are used to serious trekking, are quite fit and are looking for a new challenge - this is it! You do need a very good head for heights. Some of the routes are very exposed, very steep, and it's a long way down and a long way up!  

Is there anything else you would like to add?

 A good sense of humour is a bonus!
