Via ferrata safety tips

You don’t need much experience in climbing or mountaineering to complete a via ferrata, but you should have advanced hiking skills. Good equipment is also essential for climbing via ferrata, as is the proper technique, being considerate of other climbers and respecting the natural surroundings.

Mountain & ski guides

Before you go, understand the terrain and conditions you will encounter. Experienced mountaineers can climb via ferratas self-guided. If you appreciate the comprehensive and expert knowledge of professionals, book a local mountain & ski guide to accompany you on your adventure.


The Achensee holiday region offers accommodations to suit everyone: hotels, holiday apartments, inns, pensions, and farm-stay holidays. If you are looking for a mindful experience in nature, check out the region’s five campsites, which are embedded in unspoilt nature.
