Via Ferrata Cornwall

    Take on the only Via Ferrata in the South of England – a unique adventure unlike anything else you’ve come across!

    Via Ferrata

    Via Ferrata...the ultimate high wire adventure with zip-lining!

    Pioneered in the Alps during WW1 to enable troops to cross mountains, Via Ferrata is now a worldwide adrenaline escapade.

    Traverse then fly through our historic quarries on exhilarating routes which give you the chance to push your limits, build confidence, have fun and feel a real sense of achievement as you support each other through the challenges!

    Routes cater for adventurous 8-year olds through to adrenaline junkies of any age. They’re also guided so you don’t need any climbing experience!

    Had a brilliant afternoon, excellent value for money. Friendly welcoming team. Big thanks to Ollie, who was awesome. Made us feel at ease and thoroughly safe. Top course leader. 10/10

    The Adventure Zone

    The Adventure Zone is ideal for adventuresome children aged 8+ through to adults. Get clipped in to our safety cable and enjoy the excitement of scaling our quarry wall, before you face the challenge of the ultimate High Wire Bridge, crossing the quarry on a 70m long single strand of wire. Will you be brave enough to try no hands or have a dangle?!

    The Full Classic Route

    The Full Classic Route includes 2 Quarry Zones with the High Wire Bridge & Zip Wire. You will first complete the Adventure Zone and then progress to expand your limits. This route will take you to heights of 20 meters above our water filled quarry as you scale the cliffs, tackle the high challenges, conquer your fears and find your ‘matrix moment’ leaping from the cliff edge on the zip wire finale. This adventure is perfect for adventuresome 10 year olds through to full adrenaline junkies.

    All very professional and real value for money with real challenges and adventure. Instructor AK was excellent.


    Zip Wire Safari...the ultimate zip-lining experience! Zip-line to your heart's content on 6 mini practice zips and at least six large zip wire rides across our stunning quarry!

    The Zip-Lines

    Soar through our stunning historic quarry on a series of exhilarating zip wires and build confidence with every ride. Our dual zip offers double the fun as you launch off the quarry edge and fly round together! Part way through you’ll also experience the thrill of traversing along the cliff edge to get from one zip to the other, making this one of the most exciting zip wire experiences in the South West!

    Fully qualified Instructors will take care of you, so you can conquer your fears safely! First, you’ll go through our training zone and learn how to zip-line safely on our smaller zip wires. You can then enjoy the freedom and excitement of launching yourself off the clifftops on our big zip wires over the quarry and taking on the route under your own steam! Don’t worry, it’s impossible to accidentally unclip yourself and our Instructors will be around to help if you need.

    This adventure is for children aged 10+ and adults.

    Yesterday we took part in the zip wire adventure. One simple word WOW. Our instructors for the day were Erin and Oz, both were so kind, caring, enthusiastic and professional, taking to their task with massive smiles on their faces. The whole experience is in our opinion the best in the South West. Anyone who comes to Cornwall and doesn't take part will go home missing something that they could talk about for a long long time. The staff, activity, cafe and beautiful venue get a 10/10 rating.
