The Via Ferrata des Canyons, one of the most beautiful in the region. Opt for an activity full of sensations in a tropical universe. Head for the Vésubie gorges with an easy course for beginners. For the adrenaline fans, try the more difficult courses. 

The stages of Lantosque Via Ferrata

Do this beautiful Ferrata in the Alpes Maritimes in an exceptional environment. Spend an exceptional moment thanks to a Via Ferrata itinerary that is entirely safe. A change of scenery is guaranteed. 2 to 3 hours are needed to progress in altitude.

The via Ferrata is divided into three stages:
- Les étroits de Riou
- La roche suspendue
- Les gorges de la Vésubie

The first stage "les étroits de Riou" is ideal for beginners. Enjoy a 10m high course. Pass over a small water Riou with small bridges, beams and bars along a moss cliff.

Continue your via ferrata on a wild and tropical course in a moss filled gorge. You can pass over the final waterfall of the Riou de Lantosque. And finish this second stage on a rock suspended between the two banks of the Vésubie called "Le Boucin".

The last stage offers you even more emotions and sensations! Finish the course with a nice view of an old aqueduct. This route is composed of several bridges of the torrent monkey. After 1000m of Via Ferrata, you will arrive in the heights of the village.

2 escape routes are possible if needed. One after 200m of via ferrata and another after 600m.
