Take your adventure to new heights with a Via Ferrata experience. Thrill-seekers will love this exposed Via Ferrata trail at an elevation of around 3000 metres. The Croix des Verdons Via Ferrata requires stamina and nerves of steel, as the route is high and quite exposed but offers breathtaking views. The ascent covers a 225-metre cumulated elevation gain in a 3-hour climb, to finally arrive at an altitude of 2,738 metres. It offers an impressive view of the highest peaks of the Vanoise and the Mont Blanc range.

Via Ferrata in the Alps is the ideal mountain activity for experiencing new thrills and excitement or even to improve your skills. Head to the via ferrata at Lac de la Rosière, where travellers get the opportunity to cross a magnificent Nepalese bridge. The most experienced climbers can go to the Croix des Verdons, the highest Via Ferrata in France. For lesser adventure-seekers, Courchevel offers Via Cordata, an activity halfway between Via Ferrata and rock climbing in the mountains.

Rock Climbing

The Praméruel rock face is the ideal climbing spot for beginners. At an elevation of 2,000 metres, it offers shade for a pleasantly cool climb even in the height of summer. The site can be reached via a vehicle track and you can park just 200 metres from the foot of the cliff. None of the routes exceed 40 metres on this limestone rock face which helps novices to achieve a sense of security. 

Indoor Climbing for Kids: Courchevel has adventure activities to entertain the little ones as well. There are indoor climbing facilities at the Aquamotion Centre, a haven for indoor activities for families.
