Infos & Booking


In the Lozère department, in the heart of magnificient Truyère gorges, the via ferrata of Malzieu-Ville offers two distinct itinaries in a bucolic environement: we are here in the land of Margeride and in the Gévaudan country. Past the village of Malzieu, the Truyère river has tirelessly carved out wild gorges with granite walls up to 100 metres high.

Between climbing and hiking, you will progress during this via ferrata on vertiginous passages while being perfectly secured on a cable and by helping you with various elements of progression such as bars, steps, cables, bridges, zip lines... Equipped with a harness, a helmet, a pulley and via ferrata lanyards, you will cross the obstacles to discover unique views, accompanied by the sound of the torrent.

The route can be adapted to the level of each person: the easy itinerary wanders through the cliff to find the least physical passages while the difficult itinerary exploits overhanging areas!

For your information, and this is rare enough to be noted, part of the via ferrata is accessible to blind or partially sighted people.
