The Via Ferrata
The via ferrata are located in very contrasting locations. Some are close to the summits others down in deep river valleys. There’s a range of grades some quite challenging. Some of the via ferrata are divided into sections. This makes it possible to either complete the route in its entirety or “escape” earlier.
The village of Lantosque, dates from the 12th century and is situated on a promontory between the rivers of the Riou and the Vesubie. The via ferrata here wends its way in the river gorge of the river Vesubie.
Peille is one of the many medieval villages on the Cote d’Azur. Old streets with arched passages maintain the medieval character along with well-worn cobbles. Currently the via ferrata here has been closed by the local council.
The Mercantour National Park is home to a couple of amazing via ferrata that finish high in the mountains.
We will move accommodation most nights as the via ferrata are too spread out to have a single base.
