Pinut via ferrata

A remarkable way to experience nature

Did you know that the Pinut via ferrata is the oldest surviving via ferrata in Switzerland? The earliest written record of it dates back to 1739. It has existed in its current form since 1907, although it was comprehensively renovated in 2007. Taking on the Pinut via ferrata is a remarkable way to experience nature at first hand, with all the thrills and none of the risk. The adventurers proceed through caves and over ladders and stairs to three practically vertical rock faces. Kids from 12 years of age can take the via ferrata from Fidaz to the Flimserstein via the Pinut.

Getting there

The car park at Flims base station offers plenty of spaces. The Flims Laax Falera shuttle towards Bargis will then take you to the Pinut stop. With a guest pass or local ID, you can use the shuttle free of charge.

Equipment

To ensure you are optimally prepared for your climbing adventure on the via ferrata, please bring the following personal equipment: a backpack, long trousers (recommended), weatherproof jacket, strong mountaineering boots, hat and gloves if necessary, snacks, drinks, sunglasses and a first aid kit.
