The via ferrata is one of the leading activities in the Annecy region.
The activity consists of following a route laid out on a cliff. This route is secured by the presence of cable and ladders, allowing us to evolve in complete safety.
These routes are intended to be fun with varied passages and facilities such as rope bridges, footbridges, ladders facing the void or other suspended beams.
The courses offered take place in remarkable sites with a “mountain” atmosphere. The via ferrata of La Sambuy is nestled in the heart of an eponymous mineral valley, preserved and which gives access to a splendid view of Lake Annecy. The Aravis via ferrata only dominates the pass of the same name in a magnificent setting that is both mountainous and pastoral.
Beyond the sporting aspect of the activity where it is necessary to evolve with the strength of the arms and the legs on more or less vertical courses, the contemplative aspect is also marked. Indeed, you will not remain insensitive to the beauty of the place and the atmosphere that reigns there.
