Book - Via Ferrata Queenstown

Clip, Climb, Explore...Via Ferrata means "iron road" and in essence it is a series of iron steps fixed into the rock face.

Via Ferrata is a unique climbing journey where you ascend fixed rungs attached to the rock face. It gives you the exposure, excitement and scenery of a rock climbing experience, while being less physically challenging, but you still get the buzz of being up high.

The guides will kit you out and instruct you on how to use the system. Within minutes, you will click into a gentle rhythmic movement as you start to move up the first rock face. Views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and beyond are simply stunning and will be enjoyed both during and after the climb.

Queenstown Hill boasts 12 routes, covering over 300 vertical meters of varying degrees of difficulty for you to conquer. From the grassy base of the hill to the breath-taking views at the top, there's more than 1000 rungs and over 500 metres of cable.

With no climbing experience necessary this adventure is a great introduction to climbing!
