Infos & Booking


The Bastille via ferrata is located in the foothills of the Bastille fort in Grenoble.

It is the only urban via ferrata in the region. The departure is from the Porte de France and the via ferrata is divided into two parts.

The first part is easy but vertiginous (50 meters high) and the progression is done using the natural rock but also with monkey bridges. The second part is more difficult but offers two loopholes which can allow to go out according to the desires of the group. On arrival at the top you enjoy the view of the entire city of Grenoble.

It is possible to go down a path in 20 minutes or use the bubbles (cable car) that will take you back to the starting point.
