December 28, 2018 - Via Ferrata Kotor is open to all interested lovers of a healthy lifestyle and adrenaline entertainment. Montagna Travel Montenegro Agency, which manages the trail, has made sure to enrich the winter season in Boka Bay, where citizens and guests do not have a lot of outdoor activities during winter months.

You can go uphill tomorrow, and the next offer is January 5th and 6th.
Via Ferrata represents a secured mountain trail that through the help of cables and metal galleys crosses difficult parts of mountainous massifs. Ferrates are suitable not only for professional alpinists but also for people of average physical fitness who are not active in hiking and sports.
Via Ferrata is on the way out of the canyon of Skurda, near the entrance to the Old Town of Kotor on Tabacina. The trail begins at an altitude of 80 m, and its endpoint is 205 m above sea level. From the rocks of Via Ferrata Kotor, participants could enjoy an outstanding view of the Kotor Bay, the Fort San Giovanni, the Old Town of Kotor and the old pedestrian way towards Montenegro through the village of Spiljari.
Via Ferrata is a protected climbing route found in the Alps, but through time became more popular and recently found in many locations. Via Ferrata Kotor is the first safe climbing zone created in Montenegro, opened for visitors on 2 May this year.
For each participant, the Via Ferrata organizer provides the alpinist and protective equipment of the helmet, belt and safety system, which includes two karabiners and belt clip. The tours are leaded by experienced guides and hikers and members of the mountain rescue service.
