VIA FERRATA CLASSIC REVIEWS

VIA FERRATA XTREME!

Via Ferrata Xtreme was introduced at Honister in 2012 to bring a much more challenging (and some say scary) Via Ferrata experience. You do need to be reasonably fit and healthy for the Xtreme.

Much more mountain: edge exposure, vertical climbs, cliff edge ladders, plus a Burma Bridge & Cargo Net crossing.

Scramble up the huge Cargo Net to reach the summit of Fleetwith Pike and one of the finest views the Lake District has to offer. Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater, perfectly framed by Alfred Wainwright`s favourite Fells, roll out before your very eyes. (Weather dependent)  Via Ferrata Classic is £40 per person and the Via Ferrata Xtreme is £45 per person.

Please note, arrival time must be 30 minutes in advance of the time you have booked, failure to do so will result in participation forfeit. Honister will not reimburse customers for any consequential losses or expenses.
