Infos & Booking


The canyon of the Angon waterfall is located above the lake of Annecy in Haute-Savoie and, in its sportive version, it proposes a spectacular course in steep gorges. Sculpted by the passage of water during millions of years, those are absolutely magnificent and amazing. Do go down in this canyon, you will need to be in good physical condition and be able to swim, but no experience of the activity is mandatory.

This descent is perfect to learn about abseiling techniques, toboggans and precision jumps (never mandatory in canyoning). If you are on a bachelor party, I can take videos and pictures along the canyon.

The itinerary starts with an impressive 45 meters abseiling from the platform of the waterfall viewpoint. You then follow with a second long abseil of 30 meters before reaching the lower part of the Angon canyon. In this section, the canyon becomes easier and more fun with the "boite aux lettres" (mailbox) slide, jumps, small abseils, etc.

If you are looking for an introduction to canyoning in the region, I advise you to follow me in the canyon of Ternèze-Boyat above Chambéry.
