Chambéry, towards Modane, St-Jean de Maurienne. Before St-Jean go right towards St-Colomban.
By Train or Bus
Check with the SNCF: schedules and fares.
Cross the village of St-Colomban, you'll find the via ferrata by the exit to the right of the road. It is well signed.
This Ferrata is a bit of an original chef d'oeuvre.
You won't get bored, 1 footbridge, 2 rope bridges, the sensation of the void... everything is in place for your moment of pure pleasure.
The trickiest section is near the beginning, so you'll be caught. The first escape route is found after the footbridge. Next you go on a long and very aerial traverse with two rope bridges.
A few steep and athletic sections near the end offer themselves freely to your tired arms, who, by this point, are not asking for so much!
