The Aosta Valley offers alongside the impressive peaks of its ridges also some interesting via ferratas. Types, difficulties, altitude and physical commitment are very varied.
It is worth starting off by saying that some itineraries have been designed specifically for children and neophytes so to prepare them for the most demanding aided routes and hiking trails of the region (Via Ferrata of the Children, Via Ferrata Marguerettaz and Via Ferrata Harry Potter).
There are several routes to French style rather athletic with plenty of equipment to support the climb with degrees of difficulty ranging from easy to extremely difficult (ie Ferrata of the Grassoney Guides).
There are many aided itineraries that are used to reach shelters and high altitude mountain huts, such as the Dalmazzi Hut, Quintino Sella or Monzino, as well as scenic spots on glaciers or scenic points.
A special mention for some high altitude itineraries with challenging itinerary and rather long timeladders: the Ferrata at the Gran Paradiso, to the Monte Emilius and the Crete Seche.
