Nunayak presents: Caving in Haute-Savoie
Caves and chasms are hidden landscapes of our region. Speleology is a good way to learn about them and to visit the majestic show they offer to the one who dare exploring them.
Introduction to caving in the Alps in Samoëns on the Giffre river in Haute-Savoie, in the Mont-Blanc region
Caving allows you to discover what is hidden under the mountains by visiting the underground galleries in Haute-Savoie. Discover caving like never before through natural slides, galleries, handrails, chasms and underground rivers…
We propose you introductions to caving to discover the caves of Balme, the underground river of Diau (Thorens Glière), the cave of Megevette but also vertical caving in a large Alpine abyss at -100m underground…
