What is Via Ferrata?
An experience that you will never forget. High flying, adrenaline filled adventure making your way through Honister pass all the way up to Fleetwith Pike gaining stunning views over the Lake District.
Via Ferrata is Latin for “Iron walkway” used to carry supplies to soldiers during the First and Second World War through the Alps at high altitude. These routes have since become a way to experience the thrill of climbing safely.
Honister’s Via Ferrata Xtreme is a system of metal ladders, rungs and possibly the longest Burma bridge in Europe, which take you up the side of a mountain, with spectacular views and challenges. This is a thrilling way to spend your day, and what an awesome way of ascending the 2,126ft summit of Fleetwith Pike?!
The Via Ferrata Xtreme will provide you with an action-packed experience for all the family, also an ideal choice for stag/hen do’s or for a group of friends up for a laugh.
We provide you with a guide as well as all the safety equipment to take you up Honister’s Xtreme route. Meeting at Kong Adventure, your guide will transport you along the stunning Borrowdale Valley and up to Honister where the activity will take place, before getting kitted up in preparation for this activity.
