ViaFerrata Tips and Tricks

For security reasons and other reasons exclusive to the owners of the via ferrata, personal equipment is not accepted. You have to use the equipment at hand even if it isn't as good as your own. That's just how it is. This allows the morons who don't wear helmets or use via ferrata lanyards to discover the benefits of secure via ferrata practice.

Do take your gloves however because they are an option for the rental.

Via Ferrata

You are setting out onto the first via ferrata in the Pyrenees.

From the start you can admire the magnificent landscape from a footbridge located over the Sègre gorges forest road. Then you progress onto the rocks by means of a series of ledges and vertical sections until you reach the historical site of San-Feliu where there is a roman chapel.

The different sections are called by their catalan names: Llisses de Llo (FD variant), or Llisses dretes (D+ variant), then El pas de las Orenetes (The passage of the swallows), El pas de la Guille (The passage of the fox), El Roc de l'Isard (the rock of isard), El Replojado dels Bous (the cattle shelter), and finally, La Pujada de San Feliu (the mountain of San-Feliu) from where you will revel in a remarkable panorama of the Cerdagne.

You can also zip down two 170m ziplines that hang 85m above the Sègre gorges. It's a nice there and back again trip.


Way Back

Follow the marked trails and then go through the picturesque village of Llo.
