Via Ferrata meaning “Iron Roads” in Italian, is a cross between rock climbing and hiking. A Via Ferrata is a path built into a rock surface using cables, ladders, bridges and other equipment in order to make it accessible to people. Via Ferrata was created by the Italians during World War I so soldiers could move quickly through parts of the Alps that were normally inaccessible. Via Ferrata has since grown into a very popular sport and is a great way to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
is the Canadian slang for “abseiling” or Australian rappelling which is the process of descent using a fixed rope and working your way down a steep cliff while standing in a face-forward position. In Australia, abseiling is a common military technique through which a soldier is attached to a secure rope allowing them to make a descent face down in order to fire a weapon. In order to provide a safe and controlled environment for this activity, Tyroparc has partnered with the Canadian Association of Décalade & Mountain Cross (ACDMC), the largest organization that specializes in this sport.
A zip line is a tree-based aerial course using free-moving pulleys from suspended cables and a safety harnesses to move a person from platform to platform. The zip line course is constructed high above the ground and designed to use a person’s weight and natural gravity as a propelling force. Mountainous countries have used zip lines as a form of transportation for many years. They’ve been traced back as far as the 18th century to the Chinese who used them to transport goods across rivers and streams.
