4.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Get in touch with your adventurous side by climbing Via Ferrata, where a steel cable leads you up alpine rocks. Banff's iron path offers three routes, all equipped with anchored cables, ladders, and bridges with hand-holds--enabling even inexperienced climbers to conquer the trek. For each of the routes, a certified guide takes a group of two to eight people, and supplies them with the necessary equipment. The Mountaineer route leads you to the east summit, which offers superb 360-degree views. Plan to see Via Ferrata and other attractions that appeal to you using our Banff trip itinerary maker.
