Gradiška via Ferrata

Half-Day Tour, start from Gradišče (pick-up in Ljubljana or Postojna)

Three words: adrenaline, sun and pleasure. This via ferrata is perfect if you’re looking forward to enjoying yourself in a warm sun, light breeze, and a satisfying climbing adventure. We actually climb two via ferratas – Gradiška and Otmarjeva via ferrata – which continue one after another and take you to the top of the Gradiška Tura Hill, 793 m. The first part of the Gradiška via ferrata is not too demanding, while the Otmar Route adds a bit more thrill to the climb. This adventure offers beautiful panoramic views of the vast Vipava Valley and just the right amount of climbing.

Guided by an experienced mountain guide.

Itinerary

We meet at the parking lot above a small historic settlement of Gradišče and head towards the beginning of the via ferrata route. We first enjoy ourselves in a secured and not a too demanding climbing route called the Gradiška via Ferrata. After we successfully finish the first via ferrata, we descend a bit and tackle the more demanding Otmar via Ferrata ascending all the way to the top of the Gradiška Tura Hill, and then slowly return back down to Gradišče.
