“Best part of our summer trip!”

Via Ferrata du Diable
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I took my kids to this attractions, and it was far and away the best thing we did all summer. My daughters aged 17, 16, 14 and 12, along with my 10 year old son and I, all went climbing the via ferrata. At first, I was terrified. I'm not that great with heights. As soon as I climbed up onto that shaky-looking bridge, I thought I'd made a huge mistake trying this out. My kids were already way ahead of me, and I had no choice but to continue. I made it across, but I was shaking. Then we started the climb. After getting the hang of the harnesses, we followed our guide up the steep cliff. It was exhilarating, and a real challenge, but we all loved every minute of it! At the top, the views are amazing. We all really felt like we'd made it to the top of the world, like we were professional climbers, although we'd never had any kind of climbing experience before. If you only do one thing on your trip to Mont Tremblant, be sure to do the via ferrata. It's the experience of a lifetime!

OK, not for the faint of heart, or should I say those with vertigo or above-average fear of heights. But for anyone who likes exhilaration, challenging their mind to have their body do things it shouldn't (ie, leaning back off a ledge with a 200' drop below!), this might be for you. With virtually no rock-climbing experience required, a reasonably fit person can scale vertical rock faces, traverse gaps on 4x4" plank bridges or wire bridges, and generally experience the exhilaration of rock climbing. Safety is not an issue, since you are provided with a climbing harness with a double carabiner system such that you are always clipped in.

I have done both the 3 hour and 5 hour tours. The 3 hour is great for the first time, particularly if do have a healthy fear of heights. But once you've got that under your belt, tackle the 5 hr tour. Just some crazy heights and bridges.

Highly recommend.

Only fault with the operation is that the 2 guides that we had very little ability in speaking English. I found it a great opportunity to practice French, but if you are a unilingual anglophone I would request a bilingual guide.
