Via Ferrata Mürren

Equipped with harness and helmet and under the instructions of your UIAGM guide, navigate along the colossal Lauterbrunnen valley walls following steel steps, zip lines, ladders and a lofty suspension bridge. With 400m (1312ft) of thin air between your feet and the valley floor, this is an intense and challenging adventure! This Via Ferrata is absolutely unique in the world and is situated right below the picturesque mountain village of Mürren.

Meet your guide at the Intersport Mürren-Schilthorn at Chalet Enzian in the carless village of Mürren. Collect your equipment and then proceed to the entrance of the via ferrata where you will receive instructions regarding technique and safety. The tour begins with easy hiking but has plenty of awe-inspiring moments in store as you reach the exposed “Hammerecke”, the zipline, and then cross a long suspension bridge as you approach Gimmelwald. Complete the via ferrata in Gimmelwald and begin your journey home.
