Canyoning, for whom?

Canyoning is an activity for everyone, and kids are welcome in all canyons from 12 years old.

Younger than 12, there are possibilities, just get in touch with us.

No jump or slide is mandatory, as we can walk around, or rappel down all of these obstacles. This said, if you are extremely scared of heights, you might not really like it. But if you're looking for some challenges, you'll definitely love it!

And do we need to say it, but yes, you need to know how to swim. The wetsuit gives a lot of buoyancy but still, being confortabl in the water is essential.

Our canyons

In the valley of Haute-Maurienne:

  • L'Écot: a classic at the very top end of teh valley, in Bonneval sur Arc. Surrounded by high mountains, this very playful canyon can be done in two distinct parts, a first one that is kid friendly (even below 12) and a second one more narrow, with jumps that will make an impression!
  • Ronce: above the Mont-Cenis lake. This canyon alternates narrow gorges and more open wide passges, with a beautiful view on the lake. Jumps, slides and rappels...and a bath in the Mont-Cenis as a bonus!
  • Vallonbrun: a hidden gem, rather short but showing an amazing complexity of rock shapes. Between two jumps, looking at how the water has been eroding the rocks will leave you speechless.

Somewhere else?

You already know these 3 canyons? You want to go further, discover new places or even learn and become autonomous? Get in touch, we will put up the best possible program for you!
