We invite you to a fantastic half-day (around 3 hours) of via ferrata in Pont-à-Lesse, near Dinant in Wallonia (Belgium).
This program is ideal for beginners, as well as for “non-sporty” people, kids, and families. We will be in the magnificent green area of the Castel hotel, in the Lesse Valley (Vallée de la Lesse). In fact, we will be at the heart of 25 hectares of natural greenery.
The route follows a long ridge, culminating on a veritable rocky summit, from where we can descend abseiling. Besides, we can do some basic rock climbing or via cordata. In fact, we can arrange it for the same day.
The main reasons why I love guiding my friends and clients here are:
– We are in the beautiful Lesse valley which I like very much;
– The via ferrata is aerial and accessible for all levels;
– We can combine it with easy rock climbing / via cordata.
Are you interested to try via ferrata in an active and fun day? Then please send me a request and let’s start planning your next adventure in Dinant! I would love to guide you on this route.
If you are fast and if you still have energy after doing the via ferrata, we can do some abseiling and/or initiation to rock climbing.

Top première expérience de Via Ferrata...
Great experience from beginning to end! Communication for the booking went smoothly and both Gauthier and Christophe were responsive and attentive to our wishes. We (a group of 5) ended up doing the Via Ferrata in “les grands malades” in Namur with Christophe. It was an amazing experience! Christophe was very professional and reassuring. He always had an eye out for everyone and guided us through the entire adventure safely and with a lot of fun. We were all ready to sign up for the next one as we safely hit the ground. Thanks for everything! See you soon!
Great trip. Recommendation for Namur Via Ferrata was good advice. Fun day and everything went smoothly with Willy as guide.
On n'a PAS fait Pont-à-Lesse, sinon Marche-les-Dames, à côté du Camp commando près de Beez. 1 h de préparatifs, 3 h de via ferrata époustouflant. On était en partie des expérimentés, pour d'autres la 1ere fois. Il ne faut pas avoir peur. C'est impressionnant, et assez sportif. Les guides attentifs, aimables et professionnels. Inoubliable.
We finally opt for the Grand-Malades (instead of Pont à Lesse) based on explo share advices. We really enjoyed it. The guide was really great! Thanks
