3 tips

before setting off on a via ferrata

My via ferrata adventure accompanied or not?

Am I trained and competent to go it alone? If not, a guide is essential.

Renting your via ferrata equipment

I don’t have a helmet? Are my lanyards out of order? Or even no equipment at all? Don’t worry, several service providers rent out all the equipment you need: it’s over here.

Are the via ferrata conditions right?

A thunderstorm in the middle of a wall is likely to leave you with more than just bad memories…

Which route?

Via Ferrata du Boffi

On the cliffs of the Causse noir, above the Gorges de la Dourbie, the via ferrata offers spectacular views of the Millau Viaduct and the Larzac plateau. Although very aerial, it’s still great fun, depending on the route you choose. A recently renovated course with a 20m-high net and the sensation of being suspended in the void. In summer, opt for the cooler mornings, as the cliff faces due south.
Access via the Montpellier le Vieux road (D110), parking in the middle of the forest track, then walk approaches 30 minutes.
If you want to take advantage of the zip lines, don’t forget your pulley! However, if you forget, there’s an escape route to avoid them.

Closed from March 15 to June 15 for nesting.

Via Ferrata de Liaucous

Open all year round, the via ferrata course at Liaucous is fun and dizzying! Access is well signposted to the Via Ferrata parking lot. Once there, you’ll need to take a 15-minute approach walk. On the way back, you’ll need 30 to 40 minutes to decompress properly.

2 intersecting routes, one blue and one red, the 2nd red section, known as the pear, is classified as extremely difficult, because of the overhanging sections over a few meters.

If you want to enjoy the final zip line, don’t forget your pulley! However, should you forget, there’s a loophole to avoid it.
