ELEVATED aDVENTURE

The Castle Hot Springs Via Ferrata adventure course provides guests the exclusive opportunity to explore the majesty of the Sonoran Desert from a position few are able to experience.  Gain a new perspective hiking past soaring Saguaro cactus, learn to move over rock, and walk across a  200-foot long aerial walkway high above a canyon floor.  

 

So, what exactly is a Via Ferrata?  Translated it is Italian for  ‘Iron Way’ and is a system that uses ladders, rungs and steel cables affixed to the rock which allows you to ascend into a mountain environment.   There are only a handful in the U.S. and this course was designed specifically for Castle Hot Springs.  We use state of the art equipment and have trained guides to assist throughout your experience.   We move at your pace and offer a custom progression that allows you to advance at your own comfort level.

No previous climbing experience is required for this guided-only activity, however guests should be reasonably fit and experienced hikers.  Helmets and harnesses will be provided and checked by our experienced guides.

Tours are offered daily and private tours are also available.
