Via ferrata

From

At Les Gentianes, there are two itineraries, both of which bring you to the Monts de Cion, above 3,000 m, in a fabulous alpine setting. 

For this activity, you need a helmet, a harness and lanyards, all of which can be hired at the bottom station of the Mont-Fort cable car on the ground floor.

Both itineraries are equipped with a security system which allows you to stay attached at all times and helps keep you safe.

Opening dates
The via ferrata is open from the beginning of July until mid-September, depending on when the Mont-Fort sector is open. 

For VIP Pass holders, please select only the activity and pick up your pass separatly either online or at one of our ticket offices.
