Activity Description:

This is the full tour of the Via Ferrata de la Grande Fistoire, one of the best via ferratas in France. It is set up on a magnificent triangular limestone mountain with a variety of different courses, getting progressively more challenging as you go round.

There are two wobbly bridges, one with wooden boards and a wire monkey bridge that is a great test of the nerves! All in all, this site makes for an exceptional day of fun, exhilaration and challenge!

The highlights of this via ferrata are the giant tyrolean zip lines with the longest at 220m long across a vast gorge to get back down.

This tour takes in the full via ferrata and is done over a day, taking 4 – 5 hours with a picnic stop on the summit. It is also possible to book a 3 hour version of this via ferrata.

Price includes all technical equipment and guide fee. The via ferrata entry fee is extra and payable at the tourist office  at the via ferrata.
