Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in the French Alps is more than just a ski resort. In the summer, as the snow begins to melt, countless more activities become possible. One of these is via ferrata a fantastic sport where you use metal ladders, hooks, ropes and stairs to scale the mountains.
The area has around eleven via ferrata routes. But, what it lacks in quantity it more than makes up for in quality. A via ferrata in the Sallanches Valley is a great idea if you’re looking for a thrill. The via ferrata des Evettes is suitable for children 10 years an older making it a great family friendly option. Then there’s the Flegere Via Ferrata which includes a 25- meter long bridge that gives you unparalleled views.
The climate here is alpine with quite mild and dry summers. The higher you get though, the colder it gets.
Fly to Geneva Airport, then take a bus, drive or transfer to Chamonix-Mont Blanc.
The spring and summer months are the best, however it can get quite busy in the height of summer.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
