Best time of year
Weather conditions: before setting off to tackle a via ferrata, it is important to check the weather forecast. Bad conditions can make climbing dangerous – particularly in stormy weather.
Rockfalls: because of the risk of falling rocks – usually caused by climbers higher up or by animals – all climbers are strongly advised to wear a helmet.
Safety: always leave sufficient distance between yourself and the climber ahead. There should never be more than one person between two anchor points.
Tips and hints
Opened: can only be undertaken with a mountain guide. In summer the whole gorge is opened, in winter only the lower part of the gorge is accessible.
From the bus station in Saas-Fee, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to the start of the via ferrata. The itinerary begins with a descent through the tower of the “La Gorge” restaurant, followed by a first zip wire and a wobbly suspension bridge. Throughout, you are accompanied by the thundering Feevispa River. Later on, you reach a high suspension bridge, 80 metres long. At the end of the route, you glide down another zip wire straight into a gaping cavern; you climb out again via a rope ladder. A path then leads to the small village of Unter den Bodmen, 10 minutes from Saas-Grund. From the campsite, climb the Chapel Trail (Kapellenweg) to return to Saas-Fee.
