A sporty and fun activity to enjoy with friends or family

These information are for summer 2022 and are subject to change for summer 2023. It will be updated at the end of May.


Summer in Val Thorens, we move! In addition to all the activities offered in our beautiful Belleville Valley, our service providers give you the opportunity to try canyoning in magnificent canyons at the bottom of the valley.


What is canyoning?


Canyoning is a white water sport that combines several disciplines: hiking, climbing, mountaineering and caving. In the Alps, it can be practised from mid-June (following the melting of the snow) until the end of September.

It is an activity to be practised in day or half-day, as well as between friends as in family. Children are accepted from 10 years old and must be able to swim.
