Overview

Adventurous travelers will love this waterfall climb, with hidden pools, towering waterfalls, swimming spots, and mountain views. Climb steel ladders and cross high, narrow bridges. Enjoy a picnic lunch beside beautiful falls. While no experience is required and full safety briefings are given, this trip is best suited to active travelers who are sure-footed and unafraid of heights.

What to Expect

You can expect to have loads of fun, an amazing adventure and incredible scenery on this half-day small group tour. You will be briefed on safety and via ferrata systems before you start by your guide.

Be prepared for walking up and down trails that are steep in sections. On the via ferrata, you will be climbing ladder rungs that run next to the waterfall and crossing bridges over the waterfall. You will be required to clip and unclip your via ferrata lanyard along the way. You will not get wet, however, you may get your feet wet at times.

There are opportunities to swim in hidden pools and picnic along the way. The activity is not difficult, however you will be required to climb up ladder rungs. On the trek your feet will be mainly on solid ground, however, you will be required to use via ferrata safety systems in some places.

Water and snacks are provided at a picnic stop on this half-day tour. Please note there is limited cellphone coverage at the waterfall.
