Via Ferrata

Climbing in Rugova Valley

For the brave, two (with a third to come) via ferrata routes have been bolted to the vertical rock face in the lower Rugova Valley. The first goes from the valley floor straight up 450m on a bolted metal rope. The second is a 500m horizontal bolted trail. Both take about an hour-and-a-half to complete (plus a 30- to 40-minute descent for the first one). All safety gear is provided and guides are there to take you safely along.

The via ferratas were installed by the energetic crew at Balkan Natural Adventure in Peja, which also runs all activities on them. In high summer it's wise to book ahead as much as possible.
