Three beautiful canyons hewed in the granite can be found in the Marécottes. These three routes very different from each other are mainly composed of jumps and slides into crystal clear pools.
In the Marécottes each canyon can be done in half a day. You can then enjoy two different routes in a row during the same day.
Who can do canyoning?
You need no specific capacity to go canyoning. At least, enjoy water. You don't have to be a good swimmer as your wetsuit and your life jacket will maintain you with no effort at the surface. Miminum age for canyoning is 9 years old.
Material and Equipement:
As simple as a swimming suit and a towel.
All technical material is supplied:
- wetsuit, 5 mm, pants + hooded jacket
- neoprene socks, 2mm
- canyoning shoes
- life jacket
- harness with descender
The guides in charge of the supervision of our activities have been specifically trained for each discipline.
For the canyoning activities, they are mountain guides and have followed the canyoning training given by the Swiss Mountain Guides Association (Association des Guides de Montagne de Suisse AGMS), or canyoning guides that have followed the canyoning training of the Swiss Outdoor Activity (SOA).
Several of our guides are also trainers for the canyoning training courses of the AGMS + SOA and take care of rescue organisation in the Walliser canyons.
