Infos & Booking


Thônes via ferrata in the Aravis Massif perfectly illustrates the style of the "via ferrata à la Française": proximity to inhabited places, dizzy, well equipped and secured.

To begin the route, you will cross a monkey bridge suspended about fifty meters high. Here you are immediately in the atmosphere of this via ferrata. The route is divided into three parts. The first part (the longest) is the easiest. You are slowly gaining height by occasionally crossing more athletic passages. In the second part, it will use your arms to climb the overhangs, certainly short ... but still. In the exit (for those who wish) it will be possible to climb the big final overhang with bars and natural holds. However, you can choose to work around the difficulty, going through the less physical scale but just as dizzying.
