The equipment needed for via ferrata in Aveyron
Equipment loaned by Alteo and what to bring
Participating in an outdoor activity such as canyoning or via ferrata requires having equipment that meets standards and is checked regularly.
So, in order to move safely on the rock walls, the Alteo guides will equip you at the meeting point with a helmet as well as a harness and carabiners.
You are responsible for bringing appropriate personal clothing.
What the instructors recommend:
Wear sportswear, elastic and comfortable. The shorts and T-shirt set will go perfectly for sunny days. If there is a risk of showers, do not hesitate to take a little k-way.
To have closed shoes with basket-type laces (shoes that are firm to the feet, neither too new to avoid damaging them nor too worn: the sole must be in good condition for better adhesion)
Bring a small bottle of water and a snack: in a small backpack, slip a bottle of water with a cereal bar to hydrate and snack.
The little extras
A camera to keep memories and be able to watch the unforgettable moments that marked your day later. Devices are available for rent, just mention it to us when you book.
A pair of gloves or mittens to protect your hands. This via-ferrata includes a number of bars, the use of hands will therefore be requested.
How to choose your via ferrata in Aveyron?
According to what criteria?
1. Age group
From 8 years old, your children will be able to take part in the so-called “easy” routes, of initiation in via-ferrata. For more sporty courses, including more techniques with more obtuse obstacles, we advise you to average between the age and the sporting ability you have.
2. According to the different levels, physical capacities
There is no point in selecting a very sporty route if you do not want to fully enjoy the activity. Prefer a course adapted to your level and your physical capacity.
For that, do not hesitate to consult the activity sheets in order to know the specificities and particularity of each via-ferrata. Your choice will be directly oriented according to your fears: dizziness, fear of water, etc. Finally, do not hesitate to ask us for advice when making your reservation, we will confirm your choice or suggest another if we deem it unsuitable.
Some via-ferrata allow you to juggle between courses, which will allow you to discover different levels of difficulty.
3. Depending on the composition of your group and your desires
With family or friends, you will not necessarily have the same desires and the same capacities. Before booking, get together and determine the obstacles you want to overcome as well as the geographic area you are targeting.
The practice of a via-ferrata activity requires being in good health and having a good physical condition.
We do not recommend these activities for people with trauma to the shoulder, ankles, or visual or cognitive impairment.
