Via Ferrata

Reaching for the skies in Alpe d'Huez !

This summer, try out the Alpe d’Huez via ferrata: family fun with this mountain activity !

Alpe d’Huez via ferrata is a perfect activity for making the most of summer in the mountains. In an otherwise inaccessible setting, try this unique experience and have fun on ladders and bars as you progress along the rocky cliffs in total safety thanks to your harness and ropes. The via ferrata offers a beautiful view over the nearby valleys and mountains: let your eyes roam the landscape.

Meet your guide in the car park 2km after the altiport towards Route du Col de Sarenne, in Alpe d'Huez. A short downhill walk (approximately 30 minutes) brings you to the start of the via ferrata. The route follows the magnificent Sarenne gorges, offering a unique atmosphere in unspoiled nature. 

Admire the natural beauty of the mountains in summer and you may even be lucky enough to spot a marmot or two before you reach the top of the plateau. The route of this via ferrata in Alpe d'Huez is truly beautiful ! It is perfect for an introduction to mountain climbing in summer.
