Scale a Via Ferrata

In Mont Tremblant National Park you’ll find one of the most popular and spectacular via ferratas in the country – the Via Ferrata Du Diable. Securely hooked into the mountain with a harness, climb a path that moves horizontally against a solid cliff face, with the glorious view of the Laurentians and surrounding valley in full display. Leave the mountaineering to the professionals, but come along and see what all the fuss is about.
