Canyoning : an outdoor sport activity

Activity outdoor

Canyoneering or canyoning is one of the most popular outdoor activities today. Canyoning is a fun activity that can be enjoyed by families, couples, individuals or friends. Nevertheless, canyoning remains an outdoor sport and a sporting activity. It consists of descending a section of river that is relatively narrow, with obstacles that can be overcome in a fun or technical way, with or without the use of mountain equipment. Canyons are usually aquatic. There are a mixture of waterfalls and natural pools, so it’s advisable to enjoy water and know how to swim.

Sport challenge

There are few canyoning trips where there is no walk before or after the canyon but canyoning stay a sport challenge. Canyoning descents can be of very different athletic and technical levels. The main techniques for overcoming obstacles are : abseiling, jump, slide and sometime zip line. All these obstacles are interspersed with walking or swimming during the descent.

Canyoning and canyons of different levels

Different levels canyoning

Our classification of very challenging canyoning, discovery canyoning and family canyoning takes account of the various technical levels and the obstacles that will be encountered. So, in each of the canyons we offer, there is walking before, during and after the canyon. We also take into account the length, difficulty and exit possibilities of the canyon. The water level remains a criterion that depends on the weather.

Savoie and Haute-Savoie aquatic hiking

Aquatic hiking

You don’t need mountain equipment for an aquatic hike. As the name suggests, it’s a hike in a body of water. Supervised by a qualified canyoning professional, there may be swimming sections as well as fun sections where you can try your hand at jumps, slides or other optional activities. In all cases, you’ll need to know how to swim.

Canyoning outdoor activity

First of all, canyoning is an outdoor sporting activity with no need for a boat. It involves walking, swimming and crossing obstacles in different ways, either by jumping, sliding, abseiling. It is therefore essential to know how to swim.

Secondly, the approach, descent and return times are given as a guide only, and may vary according to weather conditions, how often the canyon is used and the level of the group.

Please note that canyoning is not recommended for people who are sensitive to vertigo or have weak backs. So please, don’t force anyone to come. It is OBLIGATORY to inform us of any physical or mental handicap when you make your reservation, just as it is required to inform the guide before your departure in canyon.
