Via Ferrata Ari is the most advanced adventure product in Kosovo. Though its full of adrenaline no previous training is needed. Some 90 per cent of our clients are firs timers. But still, your heart will race as you make the vertical climb through metallic scales high above Rugova Canyon. You will bereaching some unmatched views of the surrounding mountains. Its a must do when you visit Kosovo.

Discover ancient caves used over the years by monks, villagers, or soldiers (depending on who you ask) and now provide shelter for native birds and other wildlife.

Italian for “iron road,” via ferrata is a climbing method in which climbers navigate a series of steel ropes and stairs while always firmly secured to the rock. Built with support from Italian experts from the Dolomites using state-of- the art techniques and equipment, Via Ferrata Ari is as safe as it is memorable. The via ferrata ascent and hike back down generally takes approximately 2-3 hours.
Need to work your way up to Ari? Start with Via Ferrata Mat (2 hrs), our newest route, which takes a more leisurely path horizontal to the river and offers similarly rewarding views of the canyon. The technical difficulty of both routes is the same, though they both have their unique charms.

Try them both and see for yourself! No previous climbing experience is necessary for either route. You will receive a full technical and safety briefing before you begin.

You will choose the Via ferrata in consultation with the guide.
