Via Ferrata in Pietrele Negre
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 trail is located in the commune of Arieșeni, village of Vârtop, Bihor county, on the Pietrele Negre cliff.
It has a total length of 200m, with a level difference of 100m.
The estimated walking time is one hour and the retreat is 30 minutes.
The trail offers a beautiful view over the Piatra Grăitoare Peak and Bihorul Peak, the highest peak in the Apuseni Mountains, and ends at a belvedere point where you can admire the entire ridge.
