Would you like to embark on some adventure activities in Málaga? The region is a paradise to enjoy outdoor activities and discover amazing natural spots. A great way to do that is along a via ferrata. Let’s discover some of them

What is a via ferrata

For those who don’t know about it, a via ferrata is an experience which mixes climbing and hiking. These types of vertical and horizontal tours allow hikers or people who don’t dare to climb, to go to places with difficult access. These routes have elements as iron rungs, climbing holds, handrails, hanging bridges and even zip-lines. You will need special via ferrata equipment (energy-absorption systems, harnesses, gloves, helmets…)
