Children's Via Ferrata Heidi
Erlebnisregion Schladming-Dachstein Verified partner Explorers Choice
Heidi is a new addition to the Children's Climbing Park.
Heidi has been made with the adventurous climber in mind. It is the most difficult out the 4 Children's Via Ferratas and some of its C/D passages will be waiting for you.
The highlight towards the end of your ascent is the rope bridge which will lead you to the Via Ferrata Kala. From there you will have impressive views of the Sattelberg Plateau.
Caution: The ziplines on these Via Ferrata routes can only be used with an experienced guide and a brake cable (“breaker”). Without the breaker, riders will crash into the trees at high speed, which could be fatal.
