Type of Trip
Via Ferrata is a very popular activity that allows to discover the stimulating sensations of the vertical world without any prior technical experience. It’s also a great way to share a friendly moment in nature together with friends or family. Join me to experience the best via ferrata in Belgium!
The idea of this half-day, one day or multi day program is to learn or review some progression and safety techniques in via ferrata and discover two of the most spectacular climbing routes in Belgium.
We can choose different via ferrata spots, like Grands Malades, Marche Les Dames, Pont à Lesse, Landelies, and many others. Always remember that it’s important to have a reasonable physical condition. We can choose the destination to fit your level. The different spots for via ferrata have routes of different difficulties, so have a look at them in more detail or ask me for more information. In fact, we can do two via ferratas in one day.
Another great plan is to mix via ferrata with some rock climbing. If you don’t have much time, we can do both activities in one day. Are you planning to stay several days? Then I can design the perfect mixed program! If you find it interesting please have a look to my rock climbing trip in Wallonia. There are many different options there.
Please send me a request to book this trip. Let’s plan together such an amazing adventure!

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

About the Guide
I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.
The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.
After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.
I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...
My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
