Via ferrata Rio Sallagoni
Equipped route in the canyon below Drena castle near to Arco
The via ferrata Rio sallagoni climbs an ancient escape route under the Drena castle. Climbing the canyon alongside and suspended above a stream, you find yourself in a mystical atmosphere with a continuous alternation of shadow and light. During the walk you will cross two tibetan bridges which test your sense of balance!
In the top ten of the german magazine specialized in via ferrata, this path is very impressive and the only one which climbs in a canyon hidden from the eyes of other tourists.
Always cool and fresh even in summer this via ferrata is short but not easy, suitable for all adults, teenagers and children of at least 9 years old.
