Come join us on special mountain treks high above the Adriatic, with views usually experienced only by the best mountaineers! A via ferrata (iron way) route is an exposed alpine mountain trek which has been prepared with safety steel wire rope, eyebolts and iron steps. It makes difficult rock faces safely scalable by those without climbing experience. If you are in relatively good physical shape, with fine motor skills and a head for heights, you are all set to conquer a via ferrata trail.

We will pick you up from Split city centre and drive 15 minutes to Podstrana. From there we start our hike up to the via ferrata route. Your mountain guides will do a safety briefing, and then assist you into the climbing equipment. We follow a steep mountain trail passing between olive groves and oak forest for about half an hour.
Finally we reach the bottom of the Perun cliff face. After another safety briefing and via ferrata equipment training, you are ready for the adventure. Embrace the rush with great views, vertical jumps and climbs. You emerge at the top of the cliff near an old army bunker from the Second World War. After a break we continue our hike to the peak (441m) and the small church of St. Jure, dating from 14th century.
You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings before heading back down via an alternative mountain trail. Transport at the bottom will take us back to Split.
