We reach the via ferrata with our vans. After a 20-minute walk, we arrive at the entrance, where you will receive a detailed safety briefing. In this way, you know exactly how to behave on the via ferrata and learn how to handle the equipment. Now you are ready for your adventure directly at the waterfall. Over suspension bridges, rocks and viewing platforms you follow the thundering waterfall and feel the adrenaline in your whole body. You are always fully secured with two carabines and can enjoy the experience to the fullest.

At the end of the tour, the vans are already waiting for us and take us back to our base in Sautens. Here we have a drink as well as warm showers and changing rooms waiting for you. In addition, you are cordially invited to refresh yourself in the swimming pool directly at our base.
