Via Ferrata 'Dragon's Lair' near Bihor
Feel the adrenaline in maximum safety in this beautiful ride among the trees, leading to an old Romanian surveillance hot-spot.
The Via Ferrata route is a mountain route similar to mountaineering routes, laid out along their entire length with fixed metal structures (iron steps, steel wire ropes, pitons, suspension bridges, etc.), which allow any mountain adventurer with a minimum of physical fitness to reach the peaks safely.
Our favourite routes in the Apuseni Mountains fall into the B (medium) difficulty categories and we offer both specialised guidance, history and description of the area and viewpoints, as well as the obligatory technical equipment (helmet, harness and via ferrata lanyard). The best time to go is from May to October, avoiding rainy days, when the rock becomes slippery, but for those who want to experience something new, we also organize tours in winter conditions.
Minimum number of participants: 5 persons.
The route is located in Vadu Crișului, Bihor county, Crișul Repede gorge, Pădurea Craiului Mountains. It has a total length of 215m, with a level difference of 150m.
The estimated time of the walk is 1 hour and the retreat 30 minutes.
This trail has several vertical portions and is equipped in the upper part with a sliding bridge of 25 meters, which offers adrenaline and thrills, in 100% safety conditions.
It offers a nice view of the Vama Sării, a strategic point, from where salt, wood and other goods transported by rafts on the Criș were watched over.
The ruins of the Vama Sării Tower can still be seen today, high in the cliff, with its three windows through which the whole gorge was watched.
