Climbing

St. Anton am Arlberg is a destination for sportspeople, summer and winter alike. Steep and uneven terrain make some hikes and mountain bike tours a challenging excursion. For those who love the challenge of nature, we recommend a climbing or via ferrata adventure. A head for heights and the right equipment are of course an essential prerequisite!

Arlberg via ferrata: Not for the faint of heart

The Arlberg via ferrata is one of the most demanding tours in the Alps, requiring endurance, courage, nerve and a head for heights. Because the via ferrata climbs over a length of three kilometres to an elevation of almost 2500 meters above sea level. The entrance to the via ferrata is located below the Valluga which can be comfortably reached by the Galzigbahn and Vallugabahn gondola lifts. The valley station of the Galzigbahn is located in the village centre of St. Anton about 10 minutes’ walk from the Hotel Arlmont.

From the Valluga 1 mountain station, a rugged hiking trail leads to the start of the route. From there, via ferrata equipment including helmet is an absolute must! The Arlberg via ferrata climbs and descends over the Knoppenjochspitze, the Lisunspitze, the Haizähne and the Weißschrofenspitze, the highest point of the via ferrata. Climbers should plan four to six hours for the route, depending on the weather and their level of fitness. A 2000-metre steel cable, 1050 rope clamps and 500 bolts help climbers to negotiate the route safely. The descent leads from the Weißschrofenspitze over demanding and steep terrain to the Kapall. From there, you can take the Kapallbahn and Gampenbahn chairlifts back down to the valley on certain days. One thing is for sure, your tired legs deserve a break!

The via ferrata is an exhilarating experience for experts, because in addition to the high alpine adventure the climb will be rewarded with magnificent views. The breathtaking panorama ranges from the Lechtaler and Allgäuer Alps in the north to the Stubaier and Ötztaler Alps, the Verwall range and the Silvretta.

Attention! For less experienced alpinists, the via ferrata is only recommended when accompanied by a mountain guide.
