Our Via Ferrata adventure with zip wire

Looking for a zip wire in Cornwall that’s a bit different? Rather than being just a passive ride, our Via Ferrata Zip Wire is the finale to the ultimate high wire adventure involving scaling cliff faces and balancing across high wire bridges! This is one of the most unique and exciting adventures in Cornwall, for kids aged 10+ through to adrenaline junkies!

"Fab day out!"

“It was an all-round fab experience, the zip wire at the end topped off the adventure. The instructor made us feel at ease from the moment we got there and we laughed all the way round the course!” – Melsy, Trip Advisor

Offering so much more than just a zip wire ride, our Via Ferrata Full Classic route is a 2-3 hour long climbing, high ropes and zip wire adventure! The only Via Ferrata in South England, it’s set in stunning granite quarries. Clipped into a safety cable, you get to wind across the rock-faces on an exciting route that takes you 20 meters above the water level. Part way through, there’s the challenge of our high wire bridge! This 70 meter long single strand of wire will test your nerve as you wobble your way over the water. The zip wire is the ultimate reward after having reached the summit!

"It was amazing!"

“It was a great challenge with a brilliant feeling of achievement at the end. Set in gorgeous scenery, the zip wire enabled you to see it all.” Cara, Trip Advisor

One of the most scenic zip wires in Cornwall

This is certainly one of the most scenic zip wires in Cornwall. As well as taking in the route you’ve just conquered, you’re treated to stunning views over Falmouth Bay and the Lizard Peninsular. These sights were last seen nearly 100 years ago by the local quarrymen – what a way to experience Cornwall’s rich quarrying heritage!

Enjoy multiple zip rides if time allows

The exhilaration that comes with zip-lining is second to none. Depending on your group size and how much time there is, you may get to enjoy it more than once!
