Vias ferratas

home > Activities > Vias ferratas

A Via Ferrata is a mostly vertical sports route that allows walkers or people that isn´t used to climb, properly equipped, to arrive to otherwise dangerous routes. It´s an approach to the feelings and the experience of traditional climbing, but without the difficulty and with more security because of itinerary´s protection. We secure ourselves to a steel cable all the time. 

Potes and the Picos de Europa with the via ferrata de Camaleño (Los Llanos) and the via ferrata de La Hermida have become the most important place in the north of Spain to practice this activity.

We also offer equipment hire service to practise vias ferratas. (+info prices)

Equipment that we will use:

  • Security harness
  • Zippers (energy absorbers)
  • Helmets

Vias Ferratas:

The via ferrata of Camaleño or via ferrata of Los Llanos, is an ascension highly recommended for families, couples, groups or individuals who want to start in this sport. It consists of three large blocks of rock, the two last joined by a beautiful Tibetan bridge that will make our pulsations increase. Once we have completed the route, we will arrive to the incredible top of the mountain, with the small village called Los Llanos under our feet. This is one of the best views that we can found of the Eastern Massif of the Picos de Europa.

The via ferrata of La Hermida, is a higher difficulty ascension, recommended for the bravest ones. We will climb large rock walls and cross two stunning Tibetan bridges hanging over “the void” that will make the adrenaline rises and required the ability of self-improvement and self-control. We´ll finish at the top of the via, enjoying the amazing views over La Hermida and the canyon. A big challenge if you’re adventurous!
