What is a Via Ferrata?

A Via Ferrata (Italian for “iron path”) is a protected climbing route, built with a steel cable rail fixed to the rock, metal steps, ladders, suspension bridges and zip wires. The word defines both the route and the outdoor activity, which consists on progressing through the Via Ferrata by using a harness clipped onto the wire. 

Via Ferrata

The only Via Ferrata on Crete, is located at the Asterousia mountain range at Kapetaniana. It is moderately difficult, well protected and with a great view to the Libyan Sea all the way! It is accessible for children aged 8 and up, making it an exciting option for a family active holiday.
