All the Via Ferrata in Sardinia

All Via Ferrata in Sardinia

Via Ferrata Cabirol, Alghero, Sardinia

There are some very spectacular Via Ferrata in Sardinia. Starting from the easy and spectacular Cabirol in Alghero to the more alpine Pentumas in the mountains of Supramonte, they all have something special.

We organise tours to the most beautiful Via Ferrata in Sardinia only, leaving behind what we consider unsafe or not worthy the trouble. This is why you will find here below only a limited number of options.

Going on a Via Ferrata means exploring a vertical crag and accessing unusual locations with the help of a steel cable, which is used both for safety and to climb up harder passages. Participants to one of our tours must be confident with walking on steep and uneven terrain, have no fear of the height and be ready for a bit of physical exercise.

Learning how to approach a Via Ferrata is very easy and it doesn't take more than 15 minutes to master it. Anyhow is imperative that all participants respect all the basic rules and do not break them, putting their or other people' life at risk.
