Canyoning Angon

The canyon descent of the great Angon waterfall is a "must" in terms of route with many basins, waterfalls and caves in a natural site, you will then reach the lower part with the passage of the letter box.

Do not hesitate to do this course on a hot summer afternoon to cool off in the middle of its magnificent gorges in the heart of nature or after a morning via ferrata in the Aravis.

The great Angon waterfall has very steep vertical portions of 40 meters with technical abseiling descents where you will literally be hung in your harness, we ask participants to already have a first experience of abseiling before starting in this impressive gorge.

If you have already practiced rock climbing or caving, this will be very useful for canyoning in this river.

It is above all a course with verticalities and with little whitewater swimming, so you will not have to pass through tumultuous waters, pots or siphons ... But rest assured, you will necessarily put your head under water waterfalls, especially since the flow is often very good throughout the summer thanks to the Tournette snow reservoirs located just upstream.

Throughout the course, the guide will give you sound advice and ensure your progress so that the outing takes place in complete safety.

The qualified canyoning guides and instructors are all state certified, they have all the necessary equipment for rescue and organization of the canyon descent, they will be there to advise you and make you discover the activity smoothly and in the right atmosphere in a small group.

Our guides are mostly residents of Bornes, Bauges and Aravis, they can advise you on other fun activities or outdoor sports.
