The Via Ferrata is the passage between hiking and climbing, horizontality and verticality. The itineraries are equipped with cables, metal ladders, footbridges, and monkey bridges, making the route easier, but not less athletic.

The via ferrata is nowadays a great success. This practice of Italian origin, which gave it its name, is a vestige of the First World War. In the "Dolomites" massif separating Italy and Austria, the Italians equipped the routes with cables and ladders to facilitate the passage of soldiers.

Near Samoëns, we propose you to discover the Via Ferrata du Mont. This varied crossing between vertiginous footbridges and ladders will offer you a breathtaking view on the village of Sixt and the Pointe de Sales. Appropriate equipment and professional supervision will allow you to evolve in complete safety.
However, it is still accessible from 1m40
