Take a journeyVia Ferrata
#Iron stairway #High wire #Zip wire …and so much more
“It’s so much more than just an adrenaline rush!”
Originating in the Alps during WWI to enable troops to cross mountains, a Via Ferrata is a climbing route like no other. Metal steps, suspension bridges and zip wires make it one of the most adrenaline-filled climbing activities worldwide. Now it’s come to Cornwall, so you can push your limits and journey across historic granite quarries in an unforgettable adventure!
You’ll get to develop your climbing skills as you traverse across our quarry walls, face your fears on the High Wire Bridge and leap from the clifftops, soaring through the air on one of the most scenic zip-lines in Cornwall! You’ll also experience Cornwall’s rich quarrying heritage and enjoy gorgeous views over Falmouth bay and the Lizard peninsula…
