Via Ferrata - Canada’s Iron Way

There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of taking in jaw-dropping panoramas from a mountain peak you’ve reached on your own steam; after-all, that’s how much of Canada’s west was discovered by our earliest explorers. Incentive winners know that pushing beyond their comfort zone is the way to reach the winners circle, and so it is with Via Ferrata: an opportunity to climb new heights.

No climbing experience? No problem. Vista and thrill-seekers alike can ascend the famed Via Ferrata. Italian for “iron road,” a Via Ferrata is a system of iron ladders, cables, and a suspension bridge secured to a mountain rock face. Just gear up with a helmet, boots, and harness and get your guided vertical alpine adventure underway.

Feel the power of the thundering waterfall as you ascend Canyon Sainte-Anne just outside of Québec City.
