Via Ferrata
3 hours
From 80€ per person


For action and adventure seekers in Crete, a Via Ferrata route could not be missing. It is a “climbing trail” in the Asterousia Mountains that passes through remote gorges, traverses steep cliffs, offers an adrenaline rush and enchants you with the endless view of the South Sea and the mountainous landscape.

In Kapetaniana there is the one and only route of the iron road in Crete. In the wild and rocky landscape with the imposing gorges of Asterousia, on the slopes with the panoramic view to the Libyan Sea and among the flora and fauna of the region, this is one of the most impressive Via Ferrata routes in Greece. A route that not only offers unique images of the mountains and the sea, but at the same time can excite our senses with intense emotions and always with maximum safety.

At Alternative Crete we offer all the necessary equipment and an experienced guide to carry out the activity. It is therefore worth using your strengths and escape from everyday life with a Via Ferrata route. Give it a try!

The Via Ferrata activity is not suitable for people who are afraid of heights, suffer from vertigo, etc. Good physical condition and basic climbing experience is required.
