This activity is suitable for adventurous people and is led by professional guides so that participants can safely enjoy one of the most exciting water sports close to Madrid.
A via ferrata is a thrilling mountain activity based on a mixture of alpine hiking and rock climbing principles. The via ferrata routes are just as vertical as they are horizontal, usually situated on a rocky wall that is equipped with a range of gear including: stairs, metal rungs, handrails, chains, hanging bridges and ziplines that help you move along the route. The safety system of a via ferrata is primarily based on a network of steel cables installed on the rock walls. Participants secure themselves with an energy absorbing device and special carabiners to prevent falls as they move through the route.
The Via Ferrata of Ventano del Diablo has two itineraries of different difficulty.
Via ferrata K3 level for beginners or family consists of a 500-meter horizontal traverse over the cliffs of the Júcar river canyon, and includes an impressive 28-meter cable zip line.
Via ferrata K4 is a more sporty and physical itinerary that ascends vertically to the top of the famous Ventano del Diablo viewpoint over the Júcar River, it has 2 Tibetan bridges between 15m and 20m, and an 8m cable bridge. It is designed to be enjoyed by lovers of via ferratas with previous experience or people who are looking for a route of greater technical and physical difficulty.
