Via Ferrata Queenstown Guided Vertical Climb - Via Ferrata

About Via Ferrata Queenstown

Experience the pure adventure and exhilaration of Via Ferrata - climbing in one of New Zealand’s most dramatic scenic settings! Our Via Ferrata trip is a guided climb in the Queenstown gorge. We climb cliffs carved out by enormous, 1000m deep glaciers that extended out from the Southern Alps - with climbers peaking out on the Queenstown Hill massif, overlooking the town and Lake Wakatipu.

Via Ferrata means "iron road" in Italian and is a series of iron steps, fixed into the rock face and supported by a safety cable. This safe system allows anyone with moderate fitness to scale heights that are normally only accessible to experienced rock climbers.

Each route is engineered to provide a range of difficulty and challenge while ensuring maximum safety as you uncover the most awe-inspiring views over Queenstown and the mighty Lake Wakatipu.

With 12 routes, covering over 300 vertical meters of varying degrees of difficulty, there is a perfect route to scale and conquer no matter what your ability level.

Our expert guides will kit you out and instruct you on how to use the system so you’ll be confident and comfortable before you start your adventure. An unforgettable and exhilarating way to experience the breathtaking beauty of this renowned location!
