Via Ferrata

 

Things to know:

The Via Ferrata opens every year according to weather conditions. Closing time is from November 15th until April or May when winters are hard.

The advice from our Tourism Office:

To get to the starting point, we advise you to park your car downtown. Thus, you will be close to the rental shop “Murer Sport” and will also be able to stop by the Tourism Office to get any useful information. The access path is 5 min away from downtown and the return path leads you directly back there.

The Via Ferrata of Morez is a high mountain route equipped with fixed climbing aids: metal steps, handrails, drifts (ou pins), wire cables, footbridges, suspension bridges…

 

The route of the Via Ferrata of Morez is going on the cliff “La Roche au Dade” which overlooks the city. All along the ascent, you will be able to appreciate the view over the “glasses” city until you finishes with a wonderful panoramic view on the whole valley of Morez.

Going on the Via Ferrata does not require special physical skills even if it is quite a sportive activity. It is however not advised for people suffering from vertigo or who get dizzy with high hills.

The access to the Via Ferrata is totally free.

For your safety, you have to wear good sports shoes, a helmet, a harness and a double tether. You can rent all the equipment at “Pass'Montagnes” sport shop (153 rue de la République in Morez. Tel: 03 84 33 03 35) Be careful, it is closed until half-may.

Here is a short report about the Via Ferrata which was made by “France 3 Franche Comté” (the local TV) and which shows the new recreational route.
