The via ferrata was a beautiful and adventurous hike. The views are amazing and the levels of difficulty vary, so you can pick which course to take. There is a steep walk to get to the ropes, so it helps to be in good shape....More

I attended the Via Ferrata climb to Hoven with Loen Active. Since a lot of persons attended it was well organized. The guide was great, with good social skills and professional. The climb itself was good and challenging, with different elements to test yourself!
