If you are looking for a family adventure, suitable for all audiences; children, youth and adults, this is the perfect activity for you and your loved ones.
Cuenca, a city of cliffs and hanging houses, has lived an immense history that has left, as a legacy to this city, a beautiful old town. Well, if you thought that you could only walk through its old streets and visit the Gothic cathedral or its countless viewpoints with spectacular views, you are wrong, because in Cuenca you can find Via Ferrata de Priego, a road with different levels of difficulty, that has a more available via ferrata and another one of quite physical and mental exigency.
Do not you know what a Via Ferrata is? This is a route of vertical and horizontal roads along the mountain in the form of steel steps and suspension bridges that make easy the work of climbing, without needing to have previous knowledge about it. Totally safe thanks to the cable to which you are hooked during the whole journey. These allow a large number of people of all ages and conditions to enjoy incredible sensations of adrenaline and excitement.
Via ferrata Hoz de Priego is the ideal via ferrata to start in this adventure sport. Located in the Sierra de Cuenca, this tour has the aforementioned steel schools throughout its journey, you can also enjoy its striking Tibetan bridges, with only two ropes, one through which we move with our feet and another to grab hold of hands, and other catwalks.
One of the advantages of doing this type of outdoor adventure is to release adrenaline enjoying sensational bird's-eye views of the natural beauty of the so-called Estrecho de Priego, a deep and narrow sickle created by the riverbed Escabas, which shows us one of the most picturesque landscapes of the north of the province of Cuenca, leaving a beautiful image of forest on both sides of the river. From the via ferrata you can see how the waters reveal old constructions of flour mills, hammers and remains of ancient civilizations, very interesting to see.
The family itinerary is the section called Estrecho de Priego level k1, k2 and k3, with a soft initial ascent continuing horizontally that alternates with different bridges and small climbs.
On the other hand, Las Buitreras level k4 is a route that requires more physical by the crashes it has, with its vertical rise of 70 meters. In order to face this challenge it is necessary to have previous knowledge and experience and a good physical condition.
Of course all the necessary material, helmet, harness or energy dissipator, to carry out any of the two itineraries, will be provided at the beginning of the activity, to be able to enjoy the activity in complete safety.
Our guides will make it easy to scan the scene safely during all the stages.
The Via Ferrata is very close to the Enchanted City Natural Park, where you can see rock formations created by the erosion of wind, water and ice. That's why we invite you to spend a whole weekend in Cuenca, since it is worth knowing all your tourism options and knowing their culture and history.
This activity includes both guides, as well as RC and ACC insurance, as well as a beautiful photo report and all the technical material.
