Via Ferrata Ardèche

Home / Via Ferrata Ardèche
In the Ardèche, the Via Ferrata enables you to discover the verticality of cliffs, without being afraid of heights. Formerly used in the Italian Alps so as to easily advance among the high summits, the Via Ferrata is a recreational trail, enabling you to become initiated in verticality without any previous experience. Go up high owing to cables, rungs, monkey bridges, Tyrolean traverses but especially with the help of ladders anchored in the rock.
Laid out at the heart of Gorges de l’Ardèche (Ardèche gorges) or the Gorges du Chassezac (Chassezac gorges), these courses in the cliff, also called Via Corda, blend climbing and adventure for recreational discovery of verticality. During your first Via Ferrata course in Vallon Pont d’Arc, you will be filled with wonder by the imposing landscape in front of you.

Our easy Via Ferrata and Via Corda courses in the Ardeche

Often compared to Via Ferrata, Via Corda is an adventure course where the participant uses climbing ropes to advance along the cliffs. With the absence of cables or ladders, the Via Corda courses in the Ardeche enable the preservation of more natural surroundings.

Discover out-of-the-ordinary sites to exceptional landscapes through our trips in the Ardeche. As with other countryside activities offered by Face Sud, there are various levels of difficulty, which enable everyone to find a course adapted to their level. Come and spend time alone, as a family or with friends during a half-day or a day in the Gorges du Chassezac (Chassezac gorges) or the Gorges de l’Ardèche (Ardèche gorges).

For the very young or beginners afraid of heights, Face Sud offers you a selection of courses of an easy level. These aerial hikes are comprised of recreational obstacles such as abseiling, monkey bridges or Tyrolean traverses.
