Description

Located in the Aveyron department, the via ferrata of Boffi offers you superb panoramic views on the Dourbie gorges, on the Larzac plateau and on the famous Millau viaduct. Reorganized in the last few years, the itinerary consists of a playful and very vertiginous crossing, all along which you will surely be flown over by vultures.

Between climbing and hiking, you progress on vertiginous passages while being secured on a cable and using various elements of progression: bars, steps, cables, footbridges, cable and Nepalese bridges, zip-line... Equipped with a harness, a helmet, a pulley and via ferrata lanyards, you will safely cross the obstacles to discover unique viewpoints.

The via ferrata of Boffi offers two routes of different difficulty and length. The easy route follows a nice ledge in the middle of the cliff and is accessible to most people. The difficult route, on the other hand, has many slightly overhanging passages and an impressive metal net to climb facing the void (not mandatory). The two routes meet at the end of the course for two long zip lines of 75 and 90 meters long, both of which are optional.

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

Beware: access is forbidden between March 15th and June 15th because of the nesting of birds of prey.
