About

Via Ferrata Telemark (viaferrata-telemark.com) runs up Skrede Mountain. Skrede is the Norwegian word for avalanche and every spring you can hear the thundering sound of the snow falling off Skrede Mountain. Our Via Ferrata route is made for families and active children. Anyone down to early school age can make the trip. Please look at it as an “all day event”, you should expect to use 4 hours or more on the trip.

You start at Roan Kroa where you register and get your safety gear (harness, helmet, water etc.). Then you drive to the parking area below the starting point. The first part of the Via Ferrata consist of a 10 minute walk on a path that takes you through the terrain leading to the foot of the mountain. When you reach the Via Ferrata stating point you will hook onto the safety cable and stay hooked onto this when you climb. There is a stop at the half way point where we usually have a bit to drink or eat and enjoy the views before we continue the climb to the top. At the top we always take a break. There is a book where you can write your name and the date of your trip and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that naturally comes with having mastered the mountain. Pictures, pictures, pictures... this is something you will remember for the rest of your life so bring a charged phone and / or camera. The way down is clearly marked and you can follow the path which will take you back to the parking area.

Rules:
There are safety signs at the parking area as well as at the entrance to the Via Ferrata (also below). In addition you need to know:
1. Bring at least 1 liter of water with you. It is a long trip and you can get both tired and thirsty. In the summer the mountain can reflect heat and you 
    will need water. Food and drinks can be bought at Roan Kroa both before and after the climb.
2. Bring a light wind-jacket. It can get windy at the top of the mountain.
3. Do not carry more than 5 kilos in your backpack. Even if you are an experienced hiker, 5 kilos can become quite heavy over time, particularly when
    you climb.
4. Never climb alone.
5. Always let us know when you start and when you are back.
