Via ferrata (Italian for "railway") is a way of moving along walls and various more or less vertical obstacles, using equipment similar to that used for rock climbing. The difference is that the walls are equipped with rungs, bridges and ladders, and a lifeline is placed along the entire length of the wall for self-belay. Originally created in Austria in the 19th century, it was in Italy during the 1st World War that it acquired its nobility. Today, as a form of sports tourism, it is an excellent complement to climbing, offering the same thrills and breathtaking views, but without the same level of technical commitment.

Situated at the entrance to the Ailefroide Gorges and overlooking the Gyr torrent, this Via will immerse you in a typical Alpine atmosphere at the gateway to the Ecrins National Park. A granite massif, icy blue waters and a rugged landscape will leave you speechless. Divided into 3 distinct sections, it's sure to delight the whole family, from the young and uninitiated to the sporty and adventurous. While the first section is easy and fun for beginners, the second and third sections are more challenging. More impressive and technical, the second and third sections offer you an extraordinary setting worthy of the most beautiful postcards.

We will provide you with all the necessary safety equipment (harness, ropes, helmet) and our qualified guides will help you to progress smoothly, adapting the difficulty to your level so that your enjoyment remains the central element of your outing.
