Telluride Via Ferrata ~ 1 Person

Can you climb a ladder? Are you excited to try new things? This would be awesome for you! The Telluride Via Ferrata is appropriate for all ages and ability levels and is a great group or family outing. There are no prerequisites for the Telluride Via Ferrata trip. All you need is a great attitude, sense of adventure, and the gear. We'll take care of the rest!

The Telluride Via Ferrata is San Juan Mountain Guides' newest offering and this trip has the potential to be the highlight of your vacation to the majestic San Juan Mountains. Set above the quaint mountain town of Telluride, this unique adventure combines all the best elements of mountain hiking and the classic via ferrata ladder/cable systems.

Via Ferrata – which is Italian for "iron road" – offers the ability for participants to experience the thrill of traveling through the mountains in an exposed setting with the protection of cables and steel/iron rungs. Though quite popular throughout the European Alps, the sport is just starting to gain notice here in America. Originally developed during the first World War to aid the progress of troops through the mountains, Via Ferrata are now widely recognized as inspired tourist attractions on mountain features that would otherwise be inaccessible.

The position and setting of the Telluride Via Ferrata cannot be beat. Breathtaking views of the town of Telluride, the surrounding mountains, and the iconic Bridal Veil Falls, dominate the scenery on this must-do adventure. This trip is accessible to avid hikers with a sense of adventure and is appropriate for all ages and ability levels.

Necessary Equipment:
- Pants/Shorts: Shorts or hiking pants are appropriate
- Shirts/Jackets: A short sleeve shirt, preferably not cotton, and a mid-weight long sleeve shirt or jacket
- Rain jacket
- Water: 1- 2 liters or per person
- Sunscreen
- Closed-toe shoes: Tennis shoes or "approach shoes" are appropriate
- Food & snacks (*lunch can be provided upon request)
- Small Backpack: to put all this stuff in, plus the harness, helmet, and via ferrata gear we provide you
