Features

Lots of fun, has a beam, bridge, and footbridge. This via ferrata is perfect for families and kids who are not too scared of a little void. There is a rope bridge facing the river and a 50m footbridge at the end of the route. Short, but nice.

It is possible to go on a zipline which is not linked to the via ferrata

You'll finish your outing by taking the Croix de la Faverie trail.

You have to pay. Have a bit more than 15 euros to include rental costs. Minors under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. For those who are 16 or older, a parental authorisation is necessary. One should not ignore the regulations, especially when a via ferrata is not free!

The via is not very difficult and a lot of fun and you will be overlooking the flowing Orne beneath you! It is equipped just as needed and there is little contact with the rock.

It starts off with a 20m climb to gain some altitude and then you set out on a traverse.
