INTRODUCTION TO VIA FERRATA
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Via ferrata is just fun - the more I did the more I wanted to do. I'm now considering doing some rock climbing next year, along with more via ferrata of course!
What did you think of your group leader?
We didn't have an Exodus leader with us the whole time but we were met at the airport by an Exodus rep who then also returned with us to the airport. We had two local (but internationally qualified) mountain guides leading us each day (and who had dinner with us a couple of times) who were brilliant.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Some via ferrata require a walk in (i.e. up) and walk out (i.e. down). The downhill sections seriously played on the knees of a couple of our group so bring along compression straps or anything else you may need if you've had injuries in the past. While you do need a head for heights I found that being clipped in removed feelings of vertigo for me - I'm not sure if that would apply to everyone though!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Take the chance and book this trip - you'll be so glad that you did!
