The Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix takes you on an exploration of via ferrata and an exciting introduction to vertical adventures. This activity is a cross between hiking and rock climbing along routes equipped with cables, ladders and rope bridges across rock faces and crags. Beginners, experienced climbers, adults and children, can all enjoy the fun of the vertical world of via ferrata.

Thanks to its sumptuous setting, the Chamonix valley offers a unique via ferrata. Constructed in the Aiguilles Rouges Massif opposite Mont Blanc itself and only 30 minutes from the top of the Flégère cable car, the Evettes via ferrata guarantees enormous fun and adventure. Push your limits while safely roped up to one of our guides on a varied route that includes, among other things, a dizzying rope bridge.

The Evettes via ferrata is open to beginners and children. Nonetheless, climbers must be over 1.4 metres tall, not afraid of heights, and be able to pull themselves up by their arms.
