Description

Via ferrata Chimney on Skalka (The Rock) in Kremnica Hills is one of the best climbing places in Slovakia. It offers secured climbing routes where you can use a solid steel rope to guide you all the way.

Via Ferrata in Skalka offers interesting routes and impressive views of the surrounding countryside. There are six climbing routes on the spot - from the lightest difficulty to the most demanding, thus they can be enjoyed by both beginners and experienced climbers. There is also a short via ferrata on the rock called Jánošík hole, which is designed for parents with children. The transition is enriched with a wealth of information boards with site attractions.

You will get an adrenaline rush from the longest suspension bridge in Slovakia, which is part of the ferrata. It leads at a height of about 30 meters above the gorge and is almost 80m long.

It is necessary to use special ferrata sets and protection for passage through ferrata. These are available for a rental fee at the Relax Center in Skalka (telephone reservation is appropriate).

The best access is from Relax centre Skalka, from where well marked hiking trail about 500m long leads to ferrata.
