Activity Description:

Via ferratas were invented by the Italians to get their troops over steep mountain-sides quickly and safely and now thy are a sport in their own right. Following a course of metal ladders and hand holds with over a steep rock face, via ferratas are a definite challenge and you need a head for heights!

This is an excellent via ferrata built especially for small people! The kiddie via ferrata is suitable for children from 7 years of age with holds at lower levels than adult via ferratas.

Beware though, just because it is fine for 7 year olds does not mean it is easy for adults! You still need a head for heights and the holds are not necessarily in the best place for big people. This makes it a great activity to do all together as a family. Parents, you will just have to keep a brave face for your children!

Meeting Place: Lay by at entrance to Gorges d’Agnielles
