Nunayak presents: Canyoning in the Haute Savoie Region

Between climbing, speleology, and hiking, canyoning gives you a chance to visit in an opened sky a very preserved natural aquatic environment.

Canyoning in the French Alps in Samoëns on the Giffre River in the Haute-Savoie Region !​

By testing the canyoning, you will get the opportunity to be part of natural elements, rocks and falls. The river will be your favorite playground: sliding on natural toboggans, rappelling down giant rocks and hiking or jumping in the water in the very deep heart of the river. 

The Giffre Valley is a great place to practice canyoning. Indeed, our valley offers lots of easy canyons but also more difficult canyons for sport addicts.

Equipped with a wetsuit in neoprene, a helmet, and a harness, you will discover the river as you have probably never seen.
