    What to Expect
    The newest adventure to AVA is one you simply can't miss! The Via Ferrata will take you high above Chicago Creek along the cliffs that look down over Idaho Springs. You will make your way across the cliff side along paths, ladders, rungs, rails, cables and bridges with your experienced guide. This 3-hour excursion includes cliff traversing, rappelling, a 50-foot free fall and ziplining! Minimum age 12.

    Your Via Feratta tour starts at our Idaho Springs Outpost, where you'll check in and receive your gear - all provided at no additional cost. Don your harness, pulley and gloves and then take a look and listen as we give you the course safety rundown.

    With multiple departure times per day, you'll find it easy to book a trip that works for you.

    Emily and Tessa, thank you so much for the great time. My friend and I so appreciated your efforts in making this such a fun experience for both of us. Zip lines, bungee jumps, via ferrata, tight ropes, this course had it all. Wow :-)

    My friend and I really enjoyed our first Via Ferrata trip on Mount Evans! Our tour guides Spencer and Dylan ensured safety first and kept us laughing the whole way through! Definitely loved the variety and varying levels of difficulty throughout. If I didn’t live so far away

    Spencer and Dylan were fantastic guides. We always felt safe, got challenged throughout the course and had so much fun! Even with the sunburns and scrapes we were laughing the whole time and wouldn’t hesitate to do it again!

    Emily and Spencer were great - they were organized, gave clear instructions, and were encouraging but not at all pushy. The course is a lot like a rope course but with horizontal rock traversing, rappelling, and zip-lining thrown in for extra fun, and it wasn't nearly as scary

    Great time with guides Peebers and Juju! Soaring over mountains and doing the quick drop was exhilarating! Thanks for letting us cut loose.
