Via corda in the Aude is a mix of via ferrata, abseiling and ziplining. A perfect day out in St Martin Lys to do with your friends or family!

The first part of the route begins with sections of hiking and climbing secured by ropes and cables (Via Ferrata), you will go up with a breathtaking view of the Aude. You will then go down a dry canyon where you will practice ziplining, rappelling, and safe climbing descent.

Your qualified instructor will introduce you to the environment and teach you all the rope techniques.
