Via Ferrata françaises - 163 routes - Alps, Jura, Vosges, Languedoc, Massif Central, Cevennes...

The popularity of nature sports is no longer to be demonstrated. Among all these disciplines, the via ferrata is becoming more and more important in the French leisure landscape. This new concept of dolomitic origin arrived in France in 1988 with the via ferrata of Fressinières in the Briançonnais. Twenty years later, there are nearly 150 itineraries throughout France. A subtle alliance between hiking and climbing, these routes arouse an ever-growing passion among all sportsmen who love nature, wide open spaces and strong emotions. Most of the French via ferrata, it should be noted, have forged a solid reputation for their athletic and vertiginous character and their success is indisputable. But there are also much easier routes, adapted even to children, allowing everyone to get close to the world of verticality and to live a completely original and enriching adventure while discovering unsuspected landscapes. If it is true that a suitable physical condition is required, the via ferrata routes remain a possible outlet to our hectic life in the cities, a privileged link between man and nature, a unique means of escape capable of stimulating the blossoming of each one through a most profitable physical expenditure. This book provides an exhaustive list of all the most beautiful races in a wide area from Nîmes to Besançon, including all of central France and the Alps. No less than 163 routes, all perfectly safe, are described. The very detailed information sheets will allow everyone, whatever their level, to choose a via ferrata to suit them. Some 400 photos illustrate the whole and give an idea of the atmosphere of each of the routes; the latter are faithfully traced on photos or sketches.
