The Thaurac integral via ferrata is a mix of the two half-journey we suggest to discover the Thaurac via feratta. This route go on one whole day (5 hours of activty on average).

In the first part, you will discover rock pipes, with little abseiling going down to a Tyrolean.

The 2nd part begins after a little walk all along a path. There, you will climb "La Baume percée" and its rope bridges suspended in mid air. You can gaze an unobstructed view of the Herault gorges. Here is the climbing of "La Baume du tigre" (tiger balsam) and the crossing of  the impasse balsam on a Nepalese bridge. It will lead you straight to the Thaurac plateau from the flowing face. Then, the journey ends by roping down all along the incredible Sunchine Basalm (30m long) were you will discover a magical surrounding.

After preparing equipement, we fall into groups to lead by car on the site. Be carefull : the car park is not supervised. (keep valuables out of cars. If needed, we can secure them into the Guides Office).
