The Via Ferrata of Zafarraya has it ALL: it’s fun and exciting; has exceptionally long zip-line jumps and a nice dose of art in a breathtaking natural landscape. 

And much much more! Take a look: 

Here's a breakdown of the via ferrata of Zafarraya experience

The adventure begins in Nerja, where we’ll pick you up at the meeting point (the bus station) at 09:00h. Once in the van and on our way to the Boquete de Zafarraya, we’ll explain the different landscapes that we will encounter and we’ll also explain everything that will take place during this Via Ferrata… which is rather impressive (as is every single landscape we’ll take you to!). 

We’ll arrive at the area, where local farms, fauna and flora, and a karstic mountain create a spectacular landscape. We’ll also give you a run down on the equipment and safety, but that’s just where the show begins. 

This Via Ferrata has a cultural visit right before the adrenaline starts pumping. And yes, it’s in the middle of nature! A particularly fascinating aspect of this area is that art is combined with the landscape. Wood, stones and earth are the materials used to shape this peculiar artwork, which we will explain in detail from beginning to end. 

After the natural museum we’ll talk a bit about the Via Ferrata and give a small demonstration on technique and safety. Then, we’ll put our equipment on and give you some final instructions before letting ourselves be carried away by a vertical traverse that has never failed to bring excitement to those who’ve tried it. 

Steel steps mark the route, which features long and entertaining zip-line jumps here and there (actually, there’s three of them: one that’s 25 meters, another that’s 35m and a last one that’s 10m) and  both monkey and Tibetan bridges. Do not let their names scare you because ultimately this Via Ferrata offers adrenaline in abundance and is ideal for beginners and veterans alike. Why? Because this section has various alternative routes that are less intimidating in case there’s something you do not feel comfortable doing. 

After about 3 hours of Via Ferrata, we’ll jump into the van, take our equipment off and have an eco-picnic with fresh locally produced snacks. The icing on the cake comes when we send you the pictures and videos that we’ll have captured with our GoPro along the entire route (that evening or the next day).

What we need from you for this via ferrata

It is simple, but important:

You have to be minimally fit

and sport or mountain shoes.

If you rather bring your own food and drinks for the final eco-picnic

we will keep everything safe inside the van.

Wallet, cell phone, keys... we will keep everything you need safe inside the van

so you don't have to worry about losing it along the Via Ferrata.

Do you wear glasses? Bring your contact lenses

and if you can't/don’t have them, make sure to have something to keep your glasses secured at all times so you don't lose them.

You must be at the meeting point at the indicated time:

the bus station in Nerja at 09:00h

If you are a little apprehensive because it’s your first time, here are some testimonials from our previous experiences:

Frequently Asked Questions

No, but you do have to be physically prepared. You just have to be “fit”. 

There are alternative routes at every point, so you don’t have to jump or cross if you don’t want to. We also have lots of experience and will help you feel more secure and confident (trust us, we’ve probably seen worse cases than yours).

Comfortable clothes to do the via ferrata, suitable footwear and only if you want because it is included, food and drink for when we do the ecopicnic.  Although we provide food and drink for the eco-picnic, you are welcome to bring any other snacks or beverages you need. We especially recommend you bring something extra to drink – the water we provide is a half liter plastic water bottle. In short: if you can bring your own drink, all the better (and if it’s in a sustainable container, that would be peeeeerfect).

No, you will have to arrive at the meeting point in the morning (Nerja bus station at 09:00h) and find your way back to your accommodations once the activity is over (there is public transportation). We’ll go from the meeting point to the Natural Park and back in our van. We do offer transportation from Málaga, but only upon request and at an extra cost. 

We only organize this experience on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And also on weekends between September and May.

Yes, about 7  people more or less. We prefer small groups to get to really know our adventurers, and that is impossible when there are too many people. There is also the option to make the experience totally private; you just have to ask us.

If you let us know at least 5 days in advance, yes: the full amount. In case it is due to a medical reason, if you give us proof of such, we will refund the money regardless if you let us know 5 days in advance.

Of course. We will make you a voucher, so you can surprise whoever you want.

You’re the only one missing: are you joining us at the via ferrata to Boquete de Zafarraya?
