Infos & Booking


25 minutes drive from Millau in the Aveyron, the via ferrata of Liaucous offers two routes through surprising rock formations.

Between climbing and hiking, you evolve on vertiginous passages while being secured on a cable and with the help of various elements of progression: bars, steps, cables, footbridges, zip-line... Equipped with a harness, a helmet, a pulley and via ferrata lanyards, you cross the obstacles in complete safety to discover unique viewpoints.

The route can be adapted to the level of each person: the less difficult route is mainly on the side of a cliff, while the other route, which is considered extremely difficult, exploits magnificent overhanging areas that will not leave your arms indifferent!

The sections in common include numerous cable bridges (crossings above the void on 3 cables). You will also pass through a cave, over a footbridge and slide down the zip-line (not mandatory)!

The via ferrata of Liaucous profits moreover from an undeniable aesthetic aspect and the approach and return walks are a real treat on the ledges of the Causse de Sauveterre, in the middle of an enormous chaos of ruiniform rocks.

Please come equipped: sneakers, small backpack, water, possibly gloves. And depending on the weather: rain jacket, sun cream, etc.

If you enjoy this experience, why not go to the nearby Boffi via ferrata and enjoy its beautiful views and its two long zip lines?
