If there is one cool and unique adventure to do in this part of the world it is to tackle a Via Ferrata.
We are going to be writing more about our time in Digne Les Bains but for now enjoy our shots of Dave and Deb StumblingUpon the Via Ferrata, Rocks of Nine Hours in Haute Provence, France.
Just outside the charming town of Dignes Les Bains there is a via Ferrata and it just so happens to be at our campsite. There was no way we were leaving France without tackling our first Via Ferrata and now we are hooked. We can't wait to find another.
If you have never rock climbed before but have always wanted to see what it is like to hang off of the side of a cliff a Via Ferrata is for you. It has all the thrill of rock climbing without needing the skill of mountaineering. No need for technique here. Just rent a harness and clip yourself into cables as you climb ladders and scale bridges through a high route.
If you do not have any climbing experience, we highly recommend hiring a guide for your first Via Feratta. You need to know how to wear a harnessproperly, how to clip yourself onto the cables and you need to feel confident dangling at dizzying heights.
So, the next time your in France, try a Via Ferrata!
