Looking for a unique experience in the canyons of the Chamonix valley? The Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix offers jumps, waterfall abseils and natural toboggans down the Barberine torrent in Vallorcine over the summer. Beginners and those with canyoning experience will enjoy some unforgettable and exciting descents in this fantastic setting.

Offering a great mix of rock climbing and white-water sports, the Barberine torrent is the perfect destination for high-adrenaline excitement for family groups and friends. The mountain setting and crystal-clear waters create a unique atmosphere for this descent surrounded by the great peaks of the Mont Blanc Massif.

We meet at the Compagnie des Guides’ water sports base, with its warm showers and lockers, in the heart of Chamonix. The only requirements to be able to participate in canyoning in the Barberine torrent are: the ability to put your head under water and to be able to swim 25m.

For an even more intense experience, the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix also organises trips to the Chalamy canyon in Italy’s Aosta Valley, with its superb course and beautiful pools. Contact us for more information.
