Activities
Raft
6 years and up 
 
The raft is an inflatable, unsinkable boat.  
Up to 8 people can take part. You’ll propel the boat while the guide will ensure that you are going in the right direction.  
The guide will adapt this activity according to the crew!  
 
A fast paced trip, a trip to discover new things... The guide can either flip the boat over or avoid the stones to make for a calmer journey.  
 
This is the perfect opportunity to spend some great time together: team spirit, fun and a change of scene guaranteed!  
 
Price: Adults €32 – Children (under 12) €27. 
Family Rate (4 people and up): Adults €30 – Children (under 12) €25. 

Airboat
Are you ready for a solo adventure? 

You’ll be the only person in your airboat! But rest assured, the guide will be with you on the river to give advice throughout your journey down the river. 

This boat is the least stable of all we have on offer, on the other hand it is very “easy” to master! 
After the guide's briefing, you’ll be able to head out and test your skills with an inflatable boat on white water! 
It's essential to listen to the safety and navigation instructions throughout the journey down the river.  
During this sporty activity, you can’t rely on your partner to do the paddling for you! 

Some aches and pains are just a bonus! 
 
Two routes are on offer: 

Discovery route (10 years and up): 5 km from Sixt to Samoëns starting after the Gorges des Tines. 
 Price: €35 per person. 

Active route (14 years and up): 8 km from Sixt to Samoëns starting from the centre of the village, passing through the Gorges des Tines. 
Price: €38 per person.
Mini-raft
12 years and up 
 
The raft's little brother, mini-rafting is an engaging activity and you will be in charge of both powering the boat forward and steering it in groups of 3 or 4. 

This is a semi-independent activity, so the guide won't be in the boat with you, but they’ll be on the river with you in their own boat. 
The guide's briefing will be very useful: someone will be appointed as the coxswain who will give instructions and the rest of the crew will then have to do what is necessary to keep the boat going in the right direction. 

Coordination and effort will be required to make the most of this trip...  
These boats are more stable but a bit more difficult to manage due to their weight.  

You can't just leave all the work to your neighbour, everyone has to paddle! A great challenge for a team of athletes!

Discovery route (10 years and up): 5 km from Sixt to Samoëns starting after the Gorges des Tines. 
Price: €40 per person. 

Sporty route (14 years and up): 8 km from Sixt to Samoëns starting from the centre of the village, passing through the Gorges des Tines. 
Price: €45 per person.
Cano-raft
10 years and up  
 
In this boat, you’ll be in pairs and will be semi independent. 
The guide will be with you on the river, but they’ll be in their own boat. 
This means you’ll be in charge of both powering the boat and steering it! 

This boat is also a bit less stable than the raft... If you’re scared of falling into the water once or twice, then this is not for you! 
The guide will give you a briefing that will teach you navigation techniques and the basics of how to read the river. This is a more engaging activity, which you could even class as sporty! 
The most difficult part is co-ordinating everything with your partner! 
 
Patience, effort and concentration will be your watch words! 
Excitement guaranteed!

Canyoning
A different discipline on white water! Swapping the paddles in for... a harness!  
Jumps, rappelling down waterfalls, water slides and more! 
Exercise and laughter: canyoning is here to be discovered!  
You must be able to swim. 
 
In our area you can chose between two canyons and three different options! 
 
Head out in groups with Bastien (maximum of 8 people) to go down this course of rivers vertically on this half day trip.  
 
These canyons offer many different options, meaning that the route can be modified to make the most of the natural conditions and the condition of the group. 
 
During this activity, your senses will be tingling... The music of the water, the stones which have been rounded by the aeons of time underneath your feet, and the fresh air of the waterfalls on your face will leave their mark on your memory.  
Let yourself be guided and recharge your batteries in the heart of nature!  
 
Discovery route (8 years and up) – €39 per person. 
This route is the second part of the Balme canyon. It is 10 minutes from Cluses (74), 50 minutes from Samoëns, and 1 hour from Annecy. 
This route is perfect for families. It is mainly made up of water slides, which makes this activity both fun and relaxing! 
 
Active route (12 years and up) – €50 per person. 
These routes are accessible for beginners, sporty people, and motivated people! 

These canyons are great for beginners, the perfect opportunity to learn the different canyoning techniques: 
jumping, rappelling and water slides.  
 
- Complete Balme 
The Balme canyon is characterised by the end of the route with waterslides that you can go back and do again and again! It is a great way to discover this activity with a sweet ending. But before all of that, there is the matter of coming down the final 25 m waterfall! Different techniques can be used to get down it gently!  

Nyon 
The Nyon canyon on the other hand is mainly rappelling and jumps (which it is possible to skip out).  
It is in Morzine, close to Gets, about 40 minutes from Samoëns. 
We would especially point out the "belvédère" rappel... Smile, there are plenty of holiday makers snapping photos of our adventurers!
