Zip line

Experience the thrill of the Faucille zip line, the steepest zip line in France! Will you dare venture out?


Solo descent : descent of one person on a rope.
Weight for solo descent: from 30 to 115 kg per person fully equipped (equipment: 4 kg).
Size: from 125 cm to 200 cm

The zip line connects the summit of the Col de la Faucille (1323 m altitude) to the village of Mijoux (1000 m altitude). It has 2 cables, so 2 people can go down at the same time, each one on his cable. A great experience to live !

Length: 905 m
Vertical drop: 312.7 m
Slope: 37 %.

Experience a multi-stage adventure:

1- the pressure is raised with a 150 m footbridge on the departure platform, 20 m high, from where is visible the village of Mijoux and the arrival platform - to be noted that La Faucille is one of the rare zip lines to propose such a scenery at the departure.

2- Thrills of adrenalin! An agent equips us with a harness, pulley, helmet... He carries out the safety checks and gives the last advice.

3- The great leap! A one-minute descent with a peak at 90 km/hour, time to slide down the Faucille at lightning speed.

4- The arrival in complete safety is ensured by a hydraulic braking system that functions like that of an aircraft carrier. Then a lift deploys and welcomes the adventurer. Lastly, the return to the departure site is made by a shuttle, suitable for people with reduced mobility.
