Are you looking for an adrenalin hit and a way to cool down this summer, or do you want to try a new activity in Morzine ?
Come and test the descent of our beautiful Nyon waterfall by canyoning. A fun french alps activity that can be shared with family or friends. You are guaranteed to have a great time in the middle of nature as you abseil down the gorge, slide down the natural slides formed by the tumultuous water flow or jump from the top of the rocks for the most daring. The activity takes place in the middle of a natural environment and magnificent alpine landscapes unique to our beautiful region. Often compared to the Ardèche or the Verdon, also in France, you will be won over by the wild, rocky, cool mountain setting in the French alps.
An ideal activity in summer, especially in hot weather and you’ll feel fresh and cool in the canyon, while having a nice dose of adrenaline and fun! Canyoning in Morzine is the perfect exciting addition to your summer holiday!
Is canyoning dangerous?
Don't worry, for over 10 years in Morzine, canyoning has been on offer with local guides. There is no need to have any particular climbing skills. A dedicated guide will explain all the secrets of canyoning before the group leaves. The guide is with you throughout and will give you instructions to follow throughout the descent and ensure safety. You will learn rope skills, abseiling and natural slides, and jumping off and on as you wish.
How to dress for canyoning? What shoes to use?
The most important thing to consider is your footwear. You will need a pair of water shoes or shoes that are safe with a good sole, because you will walk on rocks. And you need to ensure you have shoes that you are happy to get wet in the canyon! Also, bring your swimming costume, and a wetsuit will be provided. In addition to the wetsuit, you will be equipped with a helmet and a harness for safe abseiling. Pack a towel so you can dry off after you finish canyoning!
The meeting point is at the bottom of the canyon, the guide takes you to the starting point and you finish back at the meeting point.
An experience not to be missed by anyone staying in Morzine this summer! Do you want to try something different that’s also fresh and cool in the water? Our Morzine guides also offer you the chance to experience rafting with your family or friends.
After this expedition, if you need to cool off for longer, you can find lakes in the area around Morzine or our swimming pool next to the Palais des Sports in Morzine. Check out our Summer Activities pages to plan your stay.
