I obtained the title of Canyoning Guide in 2011 and have logged more than 2000 descents throughout the Alps. In recent years I have participated in international expeditions and am part of a group that organises expeditions in the Himalayan mountain range and in the dissemination of this discipline worldwide.

Full description

Adrenaline and adventure reach the highest level with this canyoning route for sportsmen and mountain lovers. Thrills, fun, a challenge to oneself and close contact with nature await you!

The Chalamy torrent, near the Mont Avic Natural Park in the Aosta Valley, is very popular with canyoning enthusiasts because it promises varied, complete routes full of obstacles to overcome.

The 'Sporting Spirit' itinerary alternates playful and technical sections in a succession of dives, slides, vertical walls and abseiling. It is designed to push you to push your limits, while remaining safe with the help of expert guides.

What we will do

We will meet in Champdepraz (AO ) and after the necessary introductions we will move by shuttle to a point in the vicinity of the canyon. Wearing wetsuits and allnecessary equipment, we will conduct a briefing on safety rules and progression techniques.

We will reach the Chalamy torrent with a few minutes' walk and... on with the adventure! We'll tackle an adrenaline-filled, complete and thrilling canyoning course, with dives from rock spurs up to 10 metres high and long toboggans, the natural slides carved out by the flow of water.

The route becomes progressively more complex, with the first section playful and rather simple, until the second section becomes more technical, where the environment becomes more enclosed, the gorges deeper and the walls higher and more vertical (up to 30 metres). The rope descents will be carried out independently, so that you can experience the thrill of a real abseil on your own skin!

The guides will always be at our side to give us assistance and support and the highest jumps can be avoided, but for a truly memorable experience, the advice is to... jump!

The activity lasts a total of 4.5 hours, 3.5 of which are in the water. At the end of the canyoning trip we will return to the cars, return our equipment, dry off and, if we feel like it, we can end the experience on a high note with lunch together in one of the local restaurants.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an intermediate level. It is not necessary to have experience in canyoning, but it is necessary to be in good physical shape, have a fair degree of confidence with heights and be familiar with water. You can participate from the age of 14 and up.

If you are looking for an equally fun but easier route, especially for beginners, you can have a look here.
