Are you ready for an outdoor experience filled with adrenalin? Hornelen Via Ferrata
is a newly established Via Ferrata that takes you 860 meters straight up to the topp
of the highest seacliff in Europe. Vertical excitement with the sea right below and
the eagles flying right besides you, is something you will never forget.
The guided day tour goes all the way to the top of Mount Hornelen. You will
definitely feel the adrenaline here. The tour starts from Smalsarhuken, the shelter
where Hekseveggen ends. From there, the route offers increasing difficulty, before
ending up in the crux just before the summit. Here you encounter 30 meters of
overhanging climbing that really gets the adrenaline going.
Not sure if you're good enough for this? All customers who climb Olavsrute must
have climbed Hekseveggen first. This is to test whether you are at the right level,
and to avoid potentially dangerous situations during the summit push.

sense of mastery and joy. Climbing perhaps the airiest Via Ferrata in the world
takes a bit of effort, but the reward is great!
