The iron path: rising to the challenge of the via ferrata

A via ferrata, meaning an ‘iron path’ in Italian, is a route created with cables and rebar, permanently affixed to mountainsides, which offers a safe way to experience steep cliff faces, as well as thundering, walled-in gorges – places once accessible only to the nimblest of mountaineers.

In this video, we travel to the backcountry of British Columbia, where the via ferrata of Zillmer Canyon offers plucky trekkers unparalleled access to alpine terrain, matched by otherworldly views of glaciers.

For those looking to challenge themselves physically and mentally, while experiencing some of the world’s most spectacular places, the iron path might just be the road to travel.
