Presentation - The Lantosque Via Ferrata.
The Lantosque via ferrata is located in a Vésubie Valley village of the same name. This via ferrata is beautiful and perfect to avoid the summer season heat. Indeed, the Lantosque via ferrata overhangs the canyon depth where the Vésubie river flows.
That's why we always are in the shade with temperatures far cooler than the those on the village square.
About challenge, the via ferrata of Lantosque is a very varied course with cross climbing parts and vertical climbing parts on ladders. There is also a long Himalayan footbridge and a long zip line. For sure, you will enjoy a good half day in this nice and relatively uncrowded course.
