Rock faces and cliffs are fascinating natural environments, inaccessible to most of us. Via ferrata circuits are built with this in mind, to make these environments accessible to as many visitors as possible. The major advantage of this type of facility is that it's using just one path to get to the cliff, thus minimizing the risk of impacts on the environment. The construction of a via ferrata is monitored regularly to ensure the conservation of the environment.
