Activity description

Via Ferrata La Pichona is a fun initiation course for the whole family where you can appreciate the landscape of Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet, Eastern Pyrenees.

The Via Ferrata is just next to St Paul de Fenouillet and is ideal for an introduction to the activity.  It allows you to climb small cliffs and to have a nice view and good sensations with your family in total safety. With moderately high grips, La Pichona Via Ferrata is ideal to get started or have a good time with children.

This vertical course of 1.5 hours is ideal for a first approach of the activity. You will learn to equip yourself, to manipulate the carabiners and to evolve on this route which will lead you on a small summit of the Fenouillèdes. Your qualified instructor will introduce you to the fauna and flora and will give you advice and support to climb this summit safely.

Once at the top, you can take time to admire the panorama and Pyrenean landscapes.

Then, the return path will give you the opportunity to smell the thyme, the wood, and the fruit or look at the delicate flowers of the cottony cistus.
