Infos & Booking


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

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

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

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 ferrata being on a rocky ridge.

Perhaps this introduction will inspire your teenagers to take a climbing and via ferrata course around Perpignan, or you and your whole family to discover rock climbing in the Eastern Pyrenees.
And if you want to try again the adventure on a more sportive course, you might follow me on the very nearby via ferrata "La Panoramique".

Finally, if would like to complete your day with a beautiful canyoning descent, I advise you the aesthetic and spectacular canyon of the Galasmus gorges which is in the immediate vicinity.
