Description

Join me for a great half day (around 3 hours) of via ferrata in Landelies, near Charleroi in Wallonia (Belgium). We will be at the Hainaut province, by the beautiful Sambre river. This site with views of the Sambre river is at the heart of a bucolic environment.

This is technical and varied route. It includes technical vertical sections as well as a narrow chimney part. Besides, there are vertiginous traverses and a long zip line. To finish off, an exciting abseiling descent! The level of the via ferrata is sustained, so you need to have experience and to be fit. But although it’s sustained I wouldn’t say that it’s extreme, so if you are in doubt please ask me!

For this rather technical itinerary, you need to be sportive and to have a strong upper body. You should have previous climbing or via ferrata experience and not be afraid of the height.

If you want, we can combine it with some rock climbing (easy – moderate). And if you also want to learn some rescue techniques we can talk about spending a full day.

I particularly like via ferrata in Landelies because:
– It’s the hardest via ferrata in Belgium
– It’s possible to combine it with some easy rock climbing
– The access and parking are easy.

If you were thinking of an easier via ferrata option, have a look at this one in Pont a Lesse, ideal for an initiation. And Grands Malades is a great option for an intermediate option.

Do you want to try the challenging routes in Landelies? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request to book this trip! It will be my pleasure to take you there. 

If you are fast and if you still have energy after doing the via ferrata, we can do some abseiling and/or an initiation to rock climbing.
