Via Ferrata Xtreme

What is Via Ferrata Xtreme?

Arriving at Honister in 2012, Via Ferrata Xtreme is just one of our thrill-seeking activities that offers our visitors a 3-hour adrenaline-fuelled adventure, right here at our picturesque site in the heart of the Lake District. Although no climbing experience is required to tackle the Honister Via Ferrata, it is certainly not for the faint of heart. With visitors facing all manner of challenges – from mountain edges, vertical ladder climbs and overhang descents to Burma bridges and sky ladders – this Lake District experience is not for the faint of heart. Get in touch to find out more about our adrenaline rush activities!

Of course, this effort will not be in vain; following a final scramble, you’ll be rewarded with some of the most spectacular views that the Lake District has to offer. Standing tall above Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater, a sense of accomplishment is matched by an abundance of natural beauty.

Please note, arrival time must be 30 minutes in advance of the time you have booked, failure to do so will result in a participation forfeit. Honister will not reimburse customers for any consequential losses or expenses. Via Ferrata Xtreme requires a good level of fitness from participants.
