Canyoning Holidays in the Alps

Canyoning Holidays in the Alps

Discover the mountains in a new way this summer on a canyoning holiday to the Alps. Explore alpine rivers, waterfalls and pools as you rappel, slide, swim, climb, and hike on an adventurous day out like no other. Alps canyoning is like discovering a limitless natural waterpark, and will allow you to explore spots inaccessible via more traditional activities!

Canyoning in the Alps is growing in popularity, and once you've tried it, you'll find it's pretty addictive! The mountains are the best place to go canyoning; there's crystal clear pools, chutes to slide down, ravines to fly across, and waterfalls to descend. All of this is surrounded by stunning scenery, and can be enjoyed under sunshine skies.

Canyoning in France, and the French Alps in particular is a great summer activity for families and groups of friends. Here you can hire an expert guide to lead you through your chosen route, and they will supply all the equipment you'll need. Canyoning holidays in the Alps are typically suitable for adventurers aged ten and over, although more technical routes might be limited to older children and adults.

Late spring and early summer is the best time of year for a canyoning holiday in the Alps. There's still plenty of melt water rushing down the mountains, and the sun is warm enough that the flowing water will be inviting.

All of the chalets listed below are located in resorts that offer canyoning excursions nearby, so take a browse through to find your perfect summer chalet for a canyoning holiday.
