Description on the routes

Rungu Via Ferrata follows the elegant south-east ridge of a rock formation below the mighty peak of Spanstinden. The entire climb is well protected, the distances between the anchor points are short and a 16 mm steel-cable as well as stepping aids facilitate the ascent. The ferrata climber will experience steep and sharp ridges and breathtaking views onto the Lavangen fjord and the nearby waterfall.

Before reaching the Nepal bridge a small, exposed wooden benches invite the climber to rest. Again, the view opens up to the Lavangen fjord and the upper Spansdalen valley. At this point the route divides in two: a green route (for beginner) and a red route for more experience climber. 

To keep on climbing the most difficult route, the climbers will need to cross the Nepal Bridge which leads steeply to the top of the Via Ferrata. From there it is only minutes to the platform of the Midnattsoltrappa. 2217 stairs will lead back to the start point.
