A via ferrata (Italian for "iron road". Plural vie ferrate. In German, klettersteig) is a mountain route which is equipped with fixed cables, stemples, ladders, and bridges.
The use of these allows otherwise isolated routes to be joined to create longer routes which are accessible to people with a wide range of climbing abilities. Walkers and climbers can follow via ferrata without needing to use their own ropes and belays, and without the risks associated with unprotected scrambling and climbing.
Whether you are a horse-lover, experienced rider or just a beginner, oisans offers plenty of four-legged fun.
For those who enjoy events, the Alpe d'Huez international equestrian endurance race is a real treat, with its challenging, high-altitude route.
