Take on Via Ferrata Excursion at Boca del Infierno near Madrid

03 Hours

Description

Discover the new Via Ferrata "Boca del Infierno" close to Madrid. A via Ferrata is a thrilling mountain activity based on a mixture of alpine hiking and rock climbing principles. The via Ferrata routes are just as vertical as they are horizontal, usually situated on a rocky wall that is equipped with a range of gear including stairs, metal rungs, handrails, chains, hanging bridges and ziplines that help you move along the route. The safety system of a via Ferrata is primarily based on a network of steel cables installed on the rock walls. Participants secure themselves with an energy-absorbing device and special carabiners to prevent falls as they move through the route.
