Operation Hook II is a Small Scale Collaborative Partnership in Sport, where a diverse group of like-minded individuals and organizations join forces to create a positive impact on the world of sport through shared goals, cooperative efforts, and a commitment to fostering inclusivity.


Within Operation Hook, we organized several activities, including one international mobility – a training course on safety in via ferrata – and many local via ferrata activities. The international training course brought together enthusiasts and experts from all participating countries, fostering a rich exchange of knowledge and best practices in ensuring the safety of via ferrata adventures.

The local adventures were super special because we made them just right for each place. Some were in beautiful nature spots, and others were in towns. We wanted everyone, especially those who usually have a hard time joining in, to feel the excitement of via ferrata. These events were a big hit, showing that via ferrata is awesome for everyone, no matter where they’re from or what challenges they face.

Imagine the fun we had! We gathered experts and fans from different countries to share ideas and tricks for keeping via ferrata adventures safe and thrilling. It was like a big group of friends teaching each other cool stuff.
