People with experience of the mountains and a good head for heights enjoy having the opportunity to experience a safe "adventure on the rocks" in a number of places in the Saas Valley – this is on the via ferrata climbing routes.
A via ferrata is a route up the rocks that is secured all the way with cables and, where necessary, ladders. For mountain sports lovers, it represents a halfway house between mountain walking and mountaineering. The link on the right takes you to details of what's available locally.
