Via ferrata in the Mont-Blanc valley

The via ferrata in the Mont-Blanc region offer breathtaking landscapes. Intermediate levels with short approaches, these vias are accessible to the majority of people. For the more motivated, we can combine the via ferrata to a glacier hike with a night in a refuge to do a hike on Mer de Glace in a high mountain panorama. Maximum people per guide depend on the difficulty of the via ferrata.

In 2018, a new via ferrata was installed in Saint-Gervais, departure on foot from the village!

There are 3 different via ferratas in the valley, for all levels:
Easy level: via ferrata Curalla
Intermediate level: Saint-Gervais part 1 and Evettes
Difficult: Saint-Gervais part 2 & 3

Dates

All year depening on the conditions.
