Visitors can climb to the top of the Honister Slate Mine along the Via Ferrata. This cable system allows you to climb up the side of the mine while being firmly attached by a harness. For the more adventurous visitors to the Lake District, visitors can climb along ladders, cross a narrow iron bridge and explore the old mineshaft tunnels. Taking you to the top of Fleetwith Pike, and opened in 2007, the Via Ferrata tours are safely guided, and the wearing of a miner´s helmet and torch is obligatory. This is a great trip for thrill-seekers, and lovers of the Lake District countryside, and also gives a great insight into the workings of the mine.
