Via Ferrata Tour - Whistler Mountain, BC, Canada

Whistler's most exciting adventure!

"Via Ferrata" is Italian for "Iron Way" and is an engineered vertical pathway. Using a special lanyard system you will secure yourself to steel cables while you climb up to the 2160m summit. Your guide will give you detailed instructions on the use of equipment and technique and all technical equipment is included.

One of the first Via Ferrata's in Canada, it provides exhilarating views and a vertical perspective you may not have thought possible!

Climbing a Via Ferrata does not require any special skills or prior experience. This thrilling activity is not reserved for seasoned mountain climbers - any reasonably fit hiker can do it! As with all activities in the beautiful Canadian Alpine each day is subject to varying mountain conditions - ask our staff what the mountain has in store for you and your visit!
