They came canyoning with OXO…

Canyoning was the highlight of our holidays. Clement was a great guide – he made us do things we’d never have expected but we always felt really safe. We both absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it.

Family canyoning introduction in Chamonix

Half an hour from Chamonix Mont Blanc, you can explore two rivers that are ideal for an introduction to canyoning with children. The children live a completely new nature experience and the parents a moment of sharing really strong in, between alpine peaks and nature reserves. 

OXO canyoning has prepared for you a canyoning outing that is aimed at families with children aged 7 and over. At this age, we usually do a simple water hike, but the OXO guides offer you a real canyoning descent. Parents and children are equipped with harnesses and you will have the opportunity to abseil along the waterfalls. The guide will ensure the descent, remains to sit to take the right position. The rest will be even more fun with natural slides drawn by rocks carved by white water. We can also jump in the crystal pools. You may choose the OXO zip line! We speak of a “tyro-splash”…
