Presentation of Via Ferrata in Rousses

The Via Ferrata in Rousses is located between Florac, Ganges and Anduze, 2 hours from Montpellier. This easy route can be done from the age of 8. At the beginning, 2 routes are possible. One is very easy and the next one is a bit more difficult with mild overhangs. You will hike and climb with gorgeous points of view and enjoy the 40-meter zipline above the river. Then you will walk on bridges and cables like a tight rope walker. This via ferrata is ideal if you want to have a good time with your friends or family members.

It is possible to do the Via Ferrata in Rousses in the morning and the Canyon du Tapoul in the afternoon for a full day of outdoor activities. The price for these combined activities is 80€ per person (group rate of 75€ per person for 5 people and more).
