A sporty and fun activity to enjoy with friends or family

Summer in Val Thorens means action! As well as all the activities on offer in our beautiful Vallée des Belleville, our service providers give you the chance to try your hand at canyoning in the magnificent canyons at the bottom of the valley.

What is canyoning?

It's a white-water sport that combines several disciplines: hiking, climbing, mountaineering and caving. In the Alps, it can be practised from mid-June (depending on when the snow melts) until the end of September.

It's an activity you can enjoy for a full or half day, with friends or family. Children aged 10 and over are welcome and must be able to swim.
