It exists many ways to enjoy the mountains …⛰️ You can contemplate the summits during your hikes, you can see them from the above during your paragliding flights, but another option would be to climb the rocks themselves ! No, we do not talk here about rock climbing, even if the topic of today looks like this, but it is the Via Ferrata which is at the honor in this article.

Here, we are between hiking and climbing and we propose you to challenge the alpine rocks while you can progress step by step thanks to specific equipment that is here to help you in your progression 🪨

Walkway, monkey bridge, nepalese bridge, ladders, and more types of equipment which will give you a lot of fun, good thrills, adrenaline, and some ways to challenge yourself in the middle of the mountains facing breath taking views !

Don’t worry, it is coached by a professional mountain guide, and secured with a lifeline that you will evolve during the Via Ferrata. But what type of package is the best for you ? Evolution 2 Chamonix has 2 packages regarding your wishes and your search for adventures.

This article describes both packages for you to make of this moment a 100% memory of pleasure ! 💖

Via Ferrata des Evettes

1/ Which Via Ferrata ?

🔵 First, there is the well-known Via Ferrata des Evettes that we love for its accessibility for the whole family and its extraordinary landscapes.
Located at 20 minutes by walk from the top of the Flégère gondola, on a smooth trail, you will explore the fantastic surroundings and you will have a full view on the Mont-Blanc Massif. The equipped trail lasts about 1h30 and it is composed by a monkey bridge, a Nepalese bridge with 2 ways out if your heart is biting too fast.

It is the perfect option to discover the thrills of the Via Ferrata ! The beginners are welcome, but, to fully live the experience : be prepared physically  💪 (not too many Génépi shots ..😉)

Via Ferrata

🔴 The second option is leading you to Passy on the Curalla Via Ferrata in the heart of a limestone ridge overhangs by the Varan Aiguille.

This trail is the sportiness, playfulness, and intenseness and lasts around 2 hours. It is composed by short ascents, cable bridges, beam, ladders. For the people that are sensitive to the emptiness, please note that this trail is the dizziest.

The whole adventure offers a nice overhead view above the the Arve valley with the Mont-Blanc in the background.

2/ They have tested it for you

It is never easy to have a good idea of the activity by reading this article (event if you can taste the thing by reading it 😉).
So, we have asked to our clients, who have tried it, to share with you, their feedbacks.

Here the feedback of Noémie, Caroline and Charlène, who looked convinced by the experience.

“We have booked the Via Ferrata of the Evettes. Facing the Mont-Blanc, we started at 9 am at the bottom of the gondola. The atmosphere was cool, no pressure and no claim. The guide briefed us with humor. The team cohesion was already there in the gondola.
Personally speaking, I was a bit nervous for a first time, but everything was there to get confidence and to feel secured. We hiked/climbed at our speed : different obstacles to pass, photo breaks and we finished it with a Himalaya bridge. The view on the Mont-Blanc and the valley of Chamonix was splendid. Everything was perfect, I discovered a passion. Thanks to all the Evolution 2 team ! “

“Excellent experience with Evolution 2 Chamonix on the Via Ferrata, a magnificent landscape and super nice group. The guide was perfect, helpful, serious, and forward-looking ! If you like the adrenaline, the nice views, the funny experiences, and you are not afraid of the emptiness, you must try this activity !”
