Via Ferrata Mont-Catherine



Our Via Ferrata Mont-Tremblant excursions are perfect for thrill seekers looking to challenge themselves while appreciating the stunning views from Mont-Catherine. No experience necessary. Choose to do only Via Ferrata (3 h), or try the Discovery (2.5 h) and combine a shorter Via Ferrata with two mega-ziplines.

.

For both trips you will start your day at our reception where you will be greeted by one of our certified guides. We'll show you how to get into your harness and you will receive a security briefing.  We start on  a practice wall where we will teach you the basic techniques involved in ascending  the Via Ferrata. Then it's an easy 10 minute hike from our reception to the foot of the cliffs to the start of the Via Ferrata.

VIA FERRATA MONT-CATHERINE (3h)
The first section takes about 1.5-2 hours and offers a physical, yet relatively easy ascent.  Along the 1968 foot (600m) route, while connected to the continuous life line (you are always connected to a steel cable), you will climb obstacles such ladders, metal steps and handles, and cross bridges and steel cables as you ascend to a height of 196 feet (60 m), the equivalent of a 20-storey building!

You can choose to exit the course at this point and wait for the group to finish. (The Discovery finishes here.) Our guides are with you the whole time to help with the gear and offer suggestions for the best techniques.

The second section of about 45 min is more similar to rock climbing, with a vertical ascent up the cliff face that offers a good physcial and technical challenge. The views of the entire region from the top are well worth the effort! From the top, you will go down the mountain on a hike of about 2297 feet (700 m) to get back to our base camp!

THE DISCOVERY - VIA FERRATA & 2 MEGA-ZIPLINES (2,5h)
For the Discovery, you will do the first section of the Via Ferrata as described above, and then exit the course after 1.5-2 hours. Then, instead of hiking back down to the base camp, you'll zipline back down on two mega-ziplines!

From the Via Ferrata, it's just a short walk to the first mega zipline, a of 3000 feet (900m) zip to the other side of the mountain. Our second zipline then takes you for a 2132-foot (650m) descent down to the foot of Cap Beauséjour. From there it's another short walk back to base camp.
