Suitable for enthusiastic newcomers, a welcoming side event for mountain lovers, exiting for sportive climbers. The via ferrata is of a medium degree of difficulty, starting right after the exit of the  Speikboden gondola at 2.000m. You’ll overcome 350m of difference in altitude belayed and safe. On your first steps out of the gondola you will already get this pure feeling of summits surrounding you. Hold on for the stunning view across Valley Aurina, Zillertal Alps and the white peaks of Durreck. Walk on for the entrance of the via ferrata. Keep the feeling of touching mountains and sky while you step into the via ferrata. Get excited on the super long suspension bridge, get a grip on the edgy rocks of the mountains. You’ll arrive at the very peak of Speikboden. Heading towards a panoramic view you can only here enjoy: Dolomites, Tre Cime and Marmolata towards the glaciers of Valley Aurina. The tour is considered a circular route, for your way back you can either chose the chairlift Sonnklar or hike downwards the alpine paths of the Speikboden recreation area.

It is possible to rent the equipment for the Via Ferrata at the mountain station of the cablecar Speikboden.

Sehr schön angelegter Klettersteig. Super abwechslungsreich: von schweren, senkrechten Passagen (meiner Meinung nach eher C statt B/C, aber nur einzelne Stellen) über leichtere Stellen bis zu versichertem Gehgelände sowie mehreren Seilbrücken ist alles dabei! Für ambitionierte Einsteiger ggf. geeignet, der Einstieg ist aber schon recht hart. Kinder, vor allem jüngere & unerfahrene, nur mit zusätzlicher Seilsicherung! Nur bei sicherem Wetter gehen - aufgrund vieler erdiger Passagen bei Nässe kritisch. Danach kann man noch schnell zum Gipfel mit gutem Blick und anschließend entweder über großen und kleinen Nock wieder zur Bergstation der Speikboden-Bahn absteigen. Oder man geht weiter zur Sonnklarhütte zur lohnenden Einkehr und fährt dort mit der Sonnklar Sesselbahn runter und von dort zur Bergstation der Speikboden-Bahn. Dabei kommt man noch an einem netten Streichelzoo vorbei.
