Via ferrata in Les Gentianes

New Via Ferrata in Les Gentianes. Two brand-new routes – one aerial, the other less demanding – that take you to an altitude of over 3,000 metres surrounded by a fantastic alpine panorama.

Via Ferrata in les Gentianes

To climb the Via Ferrata, you’ll need a helmet, harness and lanyards. Full kit can be hired at the “Les Gentianes” restaurant. You can also use your own equipment (including traditional lanyards).

The price for a ki rental (helmet, harness and lanyards) is 20 CHF.
Hiring a guide is not essential. However, if you do not have extensive experience in this sport, they charge by the day, in the same way as on guided climbing trips.

The two routes are equipped with an “aéroligne” lifeline safety system which prevents improper usage and restricts the risks for users.


How to get there

From Nendaz, take the Siviez-Tortin chairlift and then the Tortin-Gentianes lift.
From the top station of “Le Jumbo” cable car if you come from Verbier.

The Via Ferrata is free to use. Only the ski lifts have to be paid for with the 4 Vallées pass.
