ViaFerrata.Org – tips

Since the finish of the via ferrata is some distance from the start, you might want to leave a car – or a mountain bike – ready for getting back to the village. Incidentally, the possibilities for mountain biking in and around the valley are excellent.

Start Climbing

Option 1
From the train and cablecar station go towards the tennis center and there, at the Paladium, descend the Chemin du Tavis and head for the river (car park near a small wooden bridge). Walk over the bridge, to where the path to the via ferrata goes up through the trees. Direction sign on the left.


Option 2
Go up the road towards Grand-Paradis. Just before Grand Paradis, 200 m after the stone bridge and before another small bridge, turn left. Do not cross the river, but go up along its bank to a road coming in from the left. Follow this road as far as another small bridge crossing a stream. The path to the via ferrata descends steeply to the right, from a point just after this bridge

Via Ferrata

A bridge and a short walk give an easy start, before the first ‘real’ via ferrata section. Then comes a second bridge (more like the ‘real thing’) followed by a short sharp climb to an exciting traverse only a few metres above the waterfall.

Now an easy walk along a ledge – look out for the bear !

All that was just for starters. The next climb of 4 m is strenuous enough for most, but it’s worth it – the rest is sensational! 
And only too soon, you’re at the end. Feel like a second go?
