If you are a fan of adrenaline, breathtaking viewpoints and very nice Instagram photos, then this activity is for you. Located at only 30 km from Cluj-Napoca, the via ferrata from Cheile Turzii (Turda Gorges) is one of the most beautiful from Romania. The climbing is very easy (no technical experience required), starting from the river level and making our way up the gorges, passing through a vertical cave called "Grota lui Hili". The via ferrata is one way only, and the climbing down will be made on a hiking trail.



A via ferrata ―an Italian term which means ‘iron path’― is a protected climbing route, built with a steel cable rail affixed to the rock, metal steps, ladders, suspension bridges and zip wires.
Although it sounds hard and dangerous, it is rather simple and enjoyable. No previous technical experience is required, but we advise against it if you have fear of heights.
Safety equipment will be provided by us, as well as an unforgettable experience.

This activity consists of the following steps:
1. Equipping everyone in the parking lot and providing safety and technical tutorial (20 mins)
2. Hiking through the gorges to the start of the via ferrata (15 mins)
3. Exploring a small fortified cave right next to the via ferrata (15 mins)
4. Climbing on the via ferrata using the provided equipment (2 hours)
5. Photo session on top of the via ferrata (20 mins)
6. Hiking back to the parking lot on a marked trail (40 mins)

By booking this service you agree to abide by the technical and safety instructions provided by the guide(s), and you acknowledge that inherent risks of injury (however unlikely) do exist outside the control of your guide(s).

The trip was great. Beautiful views and some good adrenaline for rookie climbers like me. Anrei was very accommodating and flexible. He is extremely knowledgable of the area and culture.

For work I was in Cluj, and I was looking for something to do on the Sunday. Since I prefer outdoor activities, i have found this trip. I really liked it and I can recommend it to everyone visiting cluj if you are enjoying outdoor activities. Be aware it can be tough if you are afraid of height...
