An entry-level canyon and river walk.

with of two distinct parts that can equally be enjoyed separately one from the other.

  •  The first section is composed of a series of varied abseils of which a beautiful 25 metre waterfall that is descended on a spiderwire ?
  • Several lengthy sections of river walking which some find cumbersome also form part of this canyon.

The Second section of this canyon is composed of a chain of 15 fairly short slides that it is possible to enjoy repeatedly by looping back on foot via the footpath by the river. This natural aquatic playground is a unique feature of the Haute Savoie.

In completing both sections of this canyon, you will enjoy a great river experience with some attractive abseil. Alone, the second section is a river-walk that is perfect for adults, youngsters, as well as children from 6-7 years, to have great fun discovering this activity.
