Hike the Leukerbad Via Ferrata
Though you do not need to have much hiking and climbing experience for this trail, it is highly recommended that you have the right gear, a guide, no fear of heights, and have hiked a via ferrata before. Via ferrata is Italian for iron roads, and they are basically metal ladders built into a cliff wall that hikers can ascend with safety wires.
They were originally used in World War I by the Italian military, but now they Leukerbad Via Ferrata is a popular hiker’s attraction. It’s a 1.28 mile hike to the vertical cliff face, and then an additional 3,280 foot elevation gain. Get ready for a tough 8 hour trip, but the view of the meadows and tiny Swiss town makes the prospect more enticing.
