What is a via ferrata?


A via ferrata (which can be translated as “vertical hike”) is a route that is both vertical and horizontal, equipped with various materials.


What you will find on a via ferrata: steel holds, chains, suspension bridges and zip lines, which allow you to safely reach areas that are difficult to access.

This activity is open all year round.

It is possible to do this activity from the age of 10. You must be in good physical condition, not be afraid of heights and be equipped with sports shoes.


The word of the instructor-guide, David: “We will meet at the bus station in Nerja or at the one in Velez-Malaga. Then we’ll take our shuttle bus to Zafarraya. This new kind of hike will take place on a karst mountain, surrounded by a mountainous landscape.

After an explanation of the material and safety we will start our adventure: it is a vertical hike with steel steps, previously installed in the mountain where we will have to perform a series of tests such as monkey bridges, Tibetan bridges, several zip lines, and other things…


This Via Ferrata, suitable for beginners, will offer you a new vision of the mountain and nature. This activity is done in complete safety and with top quality equipment.
