Grand Bornand
La Cluzas

Join Yves, an IFMGA certified guide, on this unforgettable via ferrata experience in Haute-Savoie. Choose between three different routes according to your level and go explore the heights!


1/2 Day

May - Oct




If you want to enjoy a great via ferrata adventure, come to Haute-Savoie in France and join any of the three routes available. You’ll be able to learn the basics of this great activity and admire great views from the heights!

Via ferratas use different materials such as cables, scales, bars or ziplines to help you climb in the mountains in a safe way. 

In this opportunity, I offer three different routes in the Aravis massif, in Haute Savoie. This way, you will be able to choose which is the ideal route for you depending on your preferences and abilities.

Thones Via Ferrata – La Roche a L’Agathe

This is one of the hardest routes in the Alps. The hike up to La Roche a L’Agathe is short, but there’s a long descent. The whole itinerary takes between 3 to 4 hours. This route  is 20 minutes from Annecy and has exposed sections. It is perfect for adrenaline fans and very fit people.  

La Clusaz via ferrata – Yves Pollet-Villard

This is an intermediate-level route that offers a beautiful mountain scenery on the Borderan cliff. It takes takes between 3 to 4 hours to accomplish the 700 meter route. This via ferrata is equipped with footbridges, cables and ladders.

Grand Bornand via Ferrata – La Tour du Jallouvre

This is the longest (4 to 5 hours) and highest route of the Aravis. This intermediate-level itinerary takes place in Le Grand Bornand and offers fascinating views of the Aravis rage.

Join me on this great experience in Haute-Savoie! Choose any of the daring via ferrata routes and enjoy a fantastic time in the mountains. Request to book this trip!

Mountain Guide

I have been a high mountain guide since 1990. I am the precursor of canyoning at Annecy. I put on the first bolts in the Montmin canyon, I also equipped the Montmin via ferrata together with two guide friends. During the winter I work in Meribel and in the 3 Vallées area. I also organize many off-piste ski and heliski journeys in the Dolomites, Greenland and Chile in the summer. Don't hesitate to contact me if you wish to organize a mountain trip with a guide. I would be thrilled to take you up there.

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
