Description

Argentina's first via ferrata, the Virgen via ferrata in Bariloche in Patagonia runs along the banks of the Arroyo de la Virgen canyon while overlooking Moreno lake.

The route flirts with the Virgen and Basque waterfalls and crosses the canyon using three zip lines. The via ferrata allows, after more than 100 meters of ascent, to reach a small summit which offers an incredible view of the lakes and forests of the region.

For more vertical and aquatic adventures, I also suggest the nearby Arroyo Lopez canyon and Virgen canyon.
