Around Annecy, at a maximum of one hour's drive, we can take you to the via ferrata of Grand Bornand or the Tour du Jalouvre, a difficult and long via ferrata that requires a day to complete. The route is varied between footbridges, slight overhangs, aerial traverses and spectacular ridges. The difficulties are not extreme but the length of the course can surprise less experienced climbers... but fortunately in via ferrata there is always a rung or a bar to rest or to tie up with your lanyard.
The setting is buccolic, in the middle of the alpine pastures of the village of Chinaillon (above Grand-Bornand), the via will give you a magnificent view of the Aravis range in the foreground, and the Mont-Blanc massif just behind, and of course when the weather is clear, you can even see the Ecrins, Belledonne or Beaufortain massif.
Your ascent will be punctuated by the tinkling of the bells of the cows located downstream, do not forget that you are in the country of the farm Reblochon and pastoralism. Whatever the case, the Tour du Jalouvre remains one of the most alpine via ferrata routes in the region.
The via ferratas allow access to verticality without having done any climbing. They take place in a mountain setting, our guides are there to guide you, reassure you if necessary and make you love our mountains. Some people discover the mountains in this way and never leave them!
