Infos & Booking


First via ferrata created in France, the "Grande Falaise" via ferrata in Freissinières is a must!

In the heart of the Écrins massif, it offers a real mountain route, a smart and wild way. It consists of two distinct parts, an escape route in case of bad weather and a beautiful return path. Everything to spend a beautiful day in the mountains, from 12 years old.

Possible departure every day of the summer on request.
