"Via Alpina FFME 2011": a crossing with encounters between mountain sports adepts

Next summer, teams of members of the FFME (Fédération Française de la Montagne et de l’Escalade : French Mountain and Climbing Federation) will do a 11-weeks relay walk through 11 massifs of the 8 Alpine countries.

Each team will walk at least 3 day stages of Via Alpina. When crossing the various areas, the participants will also practise other mountain sports (mountaineering, climbing, canyoning, via ferrata...).

Thanks to collaboration with Grande Traversée des Alpes (Via Alpina international secretariat), contacts will be established with each country’s local associations, in order to benefit from their advice but most of all to organise convivial gatherings around the common passion for the mountains.

Do not hesitate to contact the project leaders in order to participate in this great adventure: You will find details of the planned route and various other information on (in French).
