Experience a climb that's at once both safe and thrilling. Scale Banff's picturesque Mount Norquay along via ferratas (Italian for "iron roads"), using fixed anchors, cables, and ladders. When finished, relax and enjoy a selection of craft brews and delicious wines at the Cliff House Bistro.

After a safety and equipment briefing from your certified guide, take a quick but scenic open chairlift ride to the Cliff House. Then take either the Explorer Route, or for the more adventurous, the Ridgewalker Route to experience a mountain adventure usually reserved for expert climbers.

Explorer Route:
With your certified guide, scale the cliffs above the Banff Mount Norquay ski area. Climb 2 exhilarating pitches to enjoy breathtaking views of the valley below. Walk along a suspension bridge and traverse back down the mountainside, using the fixed cables and ladders along the route, until your journey ends back at the Cliff House Bistro.

Ridgewalker Route:
With your guide, head up the Explorer Route. Then separate and transition to Norquay's ridge, approximately 7,710 feet (2,350 m) above sea level. Walk along the ridge and experience unparalleled views of the jagged terrain below. Climb back down, cross the suspension bridge, and end where you began, at the Cliff House Bistro, ready for a craft brew or glass of wine—or to simply rest while admiring the mountainside you just conquered.
