An alternative peak experience that is just as popular and enjoyable as rock climbing — think of Via Ferrata as high mountain rambles, climbs and walks that do not require any special climbing skills. You’ll navigate your way through rock faces and cliffs, high-mountain passes, and spectacular alpine scenery with minimal equipment and an instructor close by.
At Morzine-Avoriaz, we boast excellent Via Ferrata expeditions that involve climbing and moving along pre-laid mountain routes and footpaths using fixed climbing aids like ladders, rungs and wire ropes. Your harness and equipment mean you stay attached to the aids throughout your ascent. What’s more; Via Ferrata is suitable for all ages and abilities from 12 years and above.
So, if you’ve a head for heights and looking for a thrilling summer adventure in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, then Via Ferrata certainly deserves a place in your bucket list.
