What You Can Expect on an Colorado Via Ferrata Adventure

Looking to try something new?

Our brand new Colorado Via Ferrata, "The Iron Way", is a thrilling new adventure that is sure to test your limits and get your adrenaline pumping! This memorable experience will take you on the cliffs above historic Idaho Springs and Chicago Creek. You'll travel across suspended bridges, cables, rungs and trails as you traverse the cliffs with your experienced guides. This tour is perfect for those looking for a new, active experience.

The Via Ferrata is a physcially demanding activity that includes a short hike, traversing, mountaineering, rappelling, ziplining, various cable bridges and a 50 foot free fall. We recommend that those interested in the Via Ferrata tour are physically active. This adventure requires upper body strength, balance and endurance. Please bring a water bottle that can be clipped to your harness with a carabiner. 


Via Ferratas were first used during World War I as an alternative to rock climbing to scale a rock face. It may be an alternative to climbing, but you can expect to climb a bit during this tour!


I hope you are ready to push yourself to the edge, because this tour includes our 50-foot free fall! You'll walk out onto the bridge, hang your toes off the edge and step off, with our auto-belay system catching you and lowering you to the rock floor.



One of the best things about this tour is how it interacts and uses the zipline course. On the Via Ferrata tour, you will get the chance to take a ride on some of the ziplines of our Cliffside Zipline Tour!


What goes up, must come down. Get ready to step over the edge and rappel over Idaho Springs!
