Infos & Booking


Come and try via ferrata on this discovery course, also called "La Pichona" (literally, the little one), which is an easy level route.

This via ferrata is located in Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet in the Eastern Pyrenees, and is ideal for a first approach to the activity or an outing with the whole family.

All along this initiation course, you will discover an exceptional landscape, from the Agly valley to the Mediterranean sea, without forgetting the famous Canigou.

The via ferrata "La Pichona" will surely give you emotions, even if it is feasible for people who have a little apprehension with vertiginous situations. It has very few vertical passages, most of the via being on a rocky ridge.

You want to try again the adventure on a more sportive course? Join me on its neighbor, the via ferrata "La Panoramique".

And if you want to complete your day with a beautiful canyoning descent, I advise you the nearby canyon of the Galasmus gorges.
