1-Swim in the Lake of Montriond

To begin with a refreshing dip in a breathtaking setting, Lake Montriond is the ideal place. By going around this majestic lake surrounded by fir trees and mountains, you will find the perfect spot to relax and take a dip.

If you want to discover more, to go further on the lake, canoeing and paddle tools are at your disposal for strolling and rowing in peace on water.

Continuing your way through the forest, you can walk to the Ardent waterfall and reach the belvedere and its wonderful view on the lake below.

2-Canyoning

Canyoning is a water sport that is practiced in the middle of nature, it consists of descending waterways on foot with adequate equipment (wetsuit, helmet, harness, ropes, etc.). The torrents dig into the rock and then shape waterfalls, slides and gorges just waiting to be explored… Depending on the conditions, you can simply walk or slide, swim, and when the elevation increases, climb!

Canyoning is a sport accessible to all, you just need to know how to swim and the basic techniques will be taught to you on site.

So what are you waiting for to embark on a crazy adventure and try canyoning?

3-Rafting

Just like canyoning, rafting is a sport that takes you down a stream, only this time you will be in a raft. You evolve within a group, paddle in hand, in the middle of torrents and rapids which will punctuate your descent.

The passage of rapids with give you strong (and refreshing) sensations and will call on your coordination and team spirit. A perfect activity to do with family or friends… All aboard!

4-Hydrospeed

This sport also allows you to go down the river, but in an even different way. You are equipped with a float (hydrospeed), accompanied by flippers and a wetsuit, which will transport you in the different currents.
This activity is both fun and technical to practice in a group, for maximum fun and sensations!

Professional instructors will guide you to learn how to swim in the rapids, let you slide on the waves, and you may even be entitled to an introduction to surfing techniques.
 
So if summer is also synonymous with swimming for you, how about spending it in Morzine ?
