Via Ferrata Cornwall recognised as top Small Visitor Attraction

Offering the only full Via Ferrata adventure experience in South England, plus Cornwall's only multi linked zip wire tour, Via Ferrata Cornwall won Gold in the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category at the prestigious Cornwall Tourism Awards presentation, which celebrated excellence across the industry.

On top of this, they scooped the Winner of Winners award.  

Via Ferrata Cornwall offers exhilarating outdoor adventures.

One of the leading activities is the Via Ferrata, an unforgettable high wire adventure through historic quarries involving scaling cliffs, balancing across high wire bridges and zip-lining.

Offering so much more than just an adrenaline rush, participants get the chance to conquer fears, push their limits, build confidence and make amazing memories. 

Another hugely popular adventure is the Zip Wire Safari, which was launched this year.

This sees participants getting to grips with zip-lining in the practice zone and building up courage to take on a series of larger zip wires, where they can fly round the stunning quarry to their heart’s content, conquering fears with every ride! Part way through comes the excitement of traversing across the cliff edge to navigate between zip wires.

The zip wires are dual, creating extra fun for participants as they launch off the platforms and soar round together on this unique and exhilarating adventure!

Other activities include watersports, climbing, archery and coasteering, plus there’s The Cornish Barista’s Quarryside Cafe, nature adventure trails and a wild play area.  

Christmas Gift Vouchers are on sale here, with a 10% discount from 24th - 27th November!

South West Tourism Awards commented: "This year’s winner of winners has already collected a well-deserved Gold award this evening, scoring enormously well in a very competitive category. They impressed the panel in every single aspect of their business – digital, the visitor welcome, facilities, accessibility and sustainability.

They were Bronze winners last year and have since gone the extra mile in every part of the business to become genuinely excellent. Relatively new, exceptionally innovative and incredibly impressive..."

“We launched in 2020 and have since earnt a Cornwall Tourism Award three years running – we’re delighted to have been recognised again.

This award reflects what an incredible team we have and how we strive to offer ‘so much more than just an adrenaline rush’. This achievement will really help us to promote Via Ferrata Cornwall and generate more income, with all profits then supporting our launching charity BF Adventure, which helps Cornwall's vulnerable children.

We look forward to continuing to provide fantastic value for money adventures. We're very grateful to the South West Tourism Awards, as well as Tregoad Holiday Park (sponsor of the Small Visitor Attraction category) and Plymouth Business School (sponsor for the Winner of Winners award).” commented CEO Adrian Richards.
