If you’re looking for adventure in Banff National Park then you’ve got to try the Via Ferrata at Mt. Norquay. Even though you’re clipped in, it can be a little nerve-wracking at times. But also empowering.

What you get with this giveaway

My seventh giveaway out of ten to mark 10 years of blogging is a pass for two people to do the Explorer Route on the Mt. Norquay Via Ferrata. Over 2.5 hours enjoy a scenic ride on the chairlift, climb a couple of pitches and cross the suspension bridge. (Price is $169 per person plus tax.)

If that doesn’t sound like enough for you there are three other options – the Ridewalker (4 hours), Skyline (5 hours) and Sumiteer (6 hours) routes. You can sign up for any of them but you would have to cover the difference in price. At the end of your adventure you’ll undoubtedly want to stay for a drink or enjoy a meal at the Cliffhouse Bistro. It offers one of the best views of Banff.
