Vie ferrate

Vie ferrate close to the valley have turned into an absolute recreational hit in the last few years because they make it possible to enjoy breathtaking views without having to trek endlessly uphill covered in sweat. The combination of enjoying nature and caring for the environment, as well as avoiding conflict and meeting safety requirements is also supported by the funding of vie ferrate.
