Join Bold Betties and San Juan Guides for this amazing trip along Telluride's Via Ferrata!

 Via Ferrata – which is Italian for “iron road” – offers the ability for participants to experience the thrill of traveling through the mountains in an exposed setting with the protection of cables and steel/iron rungs. Though quite popular throughout the European Alps, the sport is just starting to gain notice here in America. Originally developed during the first World War to aid the progress of troops through the mountains, Via Ferrata are now widely recognized as inspired tourist attractions on mountain features that would otherwise be inaccessible.

The position and setting of the Telluride Via Ferrata cannot be beat. Breathtaking views of the town of Telluride, the surrounding mountains, and the iconic Bridal Veil Falls, dominate the scenery on this must-do adventure. This trip is accessible to avid hikers with a sense of adventure and is appropriate for all ages and ability levels.

We will arrange carpooling and head down to our campground in Ridgeway, Colorado. We will camp two nights and San Juan Mountain Guides will shuttle us to and from the Via Ferrata and guide us on our way.
