Via ferratas date back more than a century.

Via ferratas (an Italian term that means 'iron paths' in English) were first made in the Dolomites in Italy to help travellers navigate safely through the mountains.

To enhance climber safety, via ferratas include fixtures like steel wire cables, metal bars drilled into rock, and ladders and bridges, such as those in Fosen, pictured here.

These fixtures aid travel and greatly enhance safety.

Anyone who can hike can enjoy a via ferrata. No previous experience is needed, but it is highly recommended to book a guided tour with an instructor.

Via ferratas are graded according to difficulty. This helps hikers select the best routes for their level of fitness and experience.

Age limits vary, starting from ages 10-12, depending on the course.

Tour operators provide harnesses, helmets, and all the safety equipment you need.

Experience pure adventure and exhilaration, and a sense of achievement, when you reach the top of Via Ferrata Loen (pictured) or one of Norway's other gorgeous peaks.
