Bastille Via Ferrata | Grenoble – Isère

Located at the foot of the Bastille fort, the Bastille Via Ferrata in Grenoble is an atypical urban route. Composed of two parts, this route offers a wide variety of workshops during its ascent.

  • The first part is the easiest and most varied. After climbing a rocky pillar of about thirty meters, you will evolve along the cliff using walkways, beams or ladders.


  • The second part, less frequented, offers several routes of different difficulties depending on your desire or your form of the day. At the top, you will contemplate the city under your feet and the surrounding mountains, from the very heart of Fort Bastille.
  • Age: From 10 years old.
  • Period: All year long.
  • Conditions : Do not present any medical contraindication (heart desease, back problems, serious asthma…). In case of doubt, do not hesitate to ask us all of your questions.
  • Access: 2 minutes.
  • Walk back: between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the parts.
  • Activity time: between 2h and 4h, depending on the parts.
