Via Ferrata Tours

Explorer Route (2.5 hours): Step out of your comfort zone and join your guide up on the mountain following the Explorer Route. Begin the tour being introduced to the equipment, ascend a few pitches, and cross a suspension bridge. Shorter route, good for those with limited time. Includes shuttle from Banff and chair lift.

Ridgewalker Route (4 hours): Get a greater feel of heights and become a Ridgewalker! This route crosses the suspension bridge and heads up the Norquay cliffs, climbing Memorial, Sol, and Vista buttresses. Includes shuttle from Banff and chair lift.

Skyline Route (5 hours): Brand new route for 2017, including an exciting high traverse on a sheer rock wall and crosses an 'airy' 55m suspension bridge. Be rewarded with outstanding panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. Includes shuttle from Banff and chair lift.

Summiteer (6 hours): Previously named 'Mountaineer'. Longest of all 4 routes, a continuation of the Skyline route this route traverses the alpine ridge crossing an additional 3-wire suspension bridge over an impressive chasm. Includes shuttle from Banff and chair lift as well as Lunch on the mountain, apres climbing platter and beverage at Cliffhouse Bistro.
