Via Ferrata

The world of verticality for everyone !

Thanks to a lifeline cable to which you are connected without interruption, you will be able to follow the via ferrata without being concerned for your safety. The artificial steps, the ladders and other equipements will make your progression easy. You need to be reasonnably fit, but no former experience of climbing is required.

If this concept was first born for defense reasons on the borders between the alpine countries, its comeback as a sport activity in the eighties was initiated, among a few others, in Maurienne. Today we have a wide choice of itineraries with a great variation, from the easy ones for kids to the very advanced that will require more stamina...and nerve control. 
Most of the routes are accessible whatever your level, and all have in common the same breathtaking views.

Where: Aussois, Forts de l'Eisseillon and Pont du Diable

Yes we have it all in Maurienne : nice and well maintained downhill singletracks in the resorts of Aussois, Val-Cenis & La Norma, wilder but still great enduro singles away from the lifts, as well as many forest dirt roads, paths and secret spots... During the Teaser Week, you will have the choice between using shuttles and lifts to ride only downhill, going for long cross country days out, or riding our best enduro trails. With our certified bike guides, you will improve your technique and learn about the gear, while having tons of funs of course.

All different kind of bikes are available for rental. And if you're unsure about your level of fitness, we also have e-bikes so you can keep up with the rest of the group with a minimum effort!

Gravel Biking

The lightness of road biking, but in an Alpine environnement 

Alpine Gravel is where road and mountain biking are meeting! 

Imagine riding a light, stiff bike, on dirt roads in an awesome mountains environnement. Away from any traffic. That's the kind of experience we want to share with you.

Take some altitude & climb a peak !

Advanced or complete beginner, there are mountains for everyone.

During the teaser week, we want to give you the full experience and show you our kingdom! We will hike first to a hut where we will spend the night, away from the ruckus of civilisation. The next morning, after an early "alpine start" we'll start the day under the starlight to take you to the most beautiful views of our mountains.The goal will be to enjoy the scenery while getting a great exercise, but also to teach you some of the techniques, depending on your level. Navigating on glaciers, using ice axes and crampons, basic alpine climbing, using the rope to be both safe and flowy, there is a lot to talk about!

Paragliding

Safely attached to your pilot and instructor, run a few meters and let the alpine breeze lift you in the air... Paragliding is open for everyone, with (almost) no limitations in age. The only thing you need to be able to do is running a few meters on take off and landing.

This is a soft activity, perfect to start a rest day during the teaser week, or before going for something else in the afternoon. Just enjoy the view and the incredible feeling of the flight...or ask your pilot for more senstaions. Paraglide is also great for aerobatics!

Canyoning, what's that?

Canyoning is a very unique combination of contemplation and action!

Comtemplation becasue you find yourself in a seldom visited kind of place: a mountain stream at its most secret spot, where is disappears from sight deep in a canyon. There, the colors, teh light and the shapes of the rocks are beyong imagination.

Action because over the milleniums, the water has shaped a perfect and natural amusement park with infinite possibilities to play in the water.

Equipped with a thick wetsuit, a helmet and a harness, we will follow a mountain stream in its deep, natural canyon. We walk where there is space on the shore, and swim when we have to. On the way there are also jumps and natural slides, and sometimes we'll use the rope to rappel down.

Trail Running

The most simple, yet demanding mountain sport. You don't need more than a pair of running shoes to be all set.

With thousands of running options, our guide Pierre (aka Pierrot) will show you the local trails, adjusted to your level and always with a focus on running in the most possible beautiful settings.

Rich of his experience in extreme long distance trail running, Pierrot will help you to grow your technique and improve your training routines. For the beginners he will teach you the basics of trail running, and hopefully give you the will to continue!

Where: Val Cenis

When: , half day activity (9 to 12)

Guide: Pierre

Road Biking

The valley of Maurienne is home to most of the biggest, highest and most famous "cols" in the Alps. 

These mountain roads culminating far above 2000m above sea level have all made the history of the Tour de France at some point: Galibier, Iseran, Mont-Cenis, Lacets de Montvernier and many others.

Climbing (and descending...) one of these giants is definitely a must-do for any road bike lover.

We will provide rental bikes, GPS files and on request we can have a follow car with assistance.
