Excellent accompagnement, aussi bien avant la journée par mail, que le jour même. Yvan nous a amené à un site magnifique, et a prodigué d'excellents conseils à mon fils. Nous avons passé une excellente journée

Super ! Nous avons passé une excellente après-midi avec Willy ! Nous avons eu des conseils et des recommandations pour pouvoir continuer la pratique de via ferrata. Je recommande vivement cette expérience

Lena

We had a very exciting day with Willy! We had never done a via ferrata before and did Pont-a-Lesse and Marche-les-Dames in one day. Willy explained the different techniques very well and adapted to our wishes and the circumstances perfectly. Gauthier adviced us in the beginning correctly that Marche-les-Dames would be better for us than Les-Grandes-Malades in terms of difficulty. Overall we were very happy with the choice, spend a great day outdoors and can definitely recommend this adventure!
