The straightest way along the rugged northern side to the top of Kitzbüheler Horn. This Via Ferrata offers grippy rock, steep climbs, exposed ridges and marvelous views. The tour is accompanied by a certified mountain guide to ensure you have a safe and fun Via Ferrata experience. Your guide will also teach you everything you need to know about Via Ferrata equipment and the right rope technique. Small groups allow for personalized attention and tailored instruction. We take the gondola to Harschbichl (please note: lift ticket is NOT included in the price!) from where it’s only a short walk to the entry of the Via Ferrata. We ascend the Via Ferrata to the peak where we enjoy magnificent views of the Wilder Kaiser range and the Kitzbüheler Alps all the way to the Hohe Tauern. This 4-hour tour is suitable for sporty hikers who are sure-footed and have a good head for heights.
