ENJOY A VIA FERRATA IN BARCELONA WITH OLE OUTDOOR.
Discover the Via Ferrata «Canal de las Dames» very close to Barcelona with Ole Outdoor Guides. Transport Included.
A via ferrata is a thrilling mountain activity based on a mixture of alpine hiking and rock climbing principles. The via ferrata routes are just as vertical as they are horizontal, usually situated on a rocky wall that is equipped with a range of gear including: stairs, metal rungs, handrails, chains, hanging bridges and ziplines that help you move along the route. The safety system of a via ferrata is primarily based on a network of steel cables installed on the rock walls. Participants secure themselves with an energy absorbing device and special carabiners to prevent falls as they move through the route.
We offer you 2 classic VF routes for your choice:
The Via Ferrata of «Baumes Corcades» is one of the most popular via ferratas in Catalonia. It crosses the cliffs on the Puigsagordi Hill.

The Via Ferrata «Canal de las Dames» in Monserrat is fun and athletic, with variety of sections through steps, chains, stones embedded, steps, overhangs and a final challenging chimney. Grade K4. Demanding.
