Activity to do without hesitation

“The place is located right on the banks of the Isère. The hydrospeed departure is done on-site with a return by van. Thomas, our guide (our group composed of a family of 6 and myself), coached, encouraged, reassured, and motivated us. Thanks again. It’s intense in every way! Physically, even though the flow of the Isère that day was not impressive. The landscapes are superb, and during a short break, Thomas managed to draw our attention to 2 chamois on the cliff side. The equipment provided was in perfect condition, therefore ensuring optimum safety conditions.”

They are extremely welcoming, from the first meeting at the shop, I felt that my satisfaction was their main concern. They took good care of me. They made sure I knew where to show up, at what time, and what I needed to have with me. Once at the meeting point for hydrospeed, I was once again welcomed warmly. The journey to the starting point was very enjoyable. The instructors made sure to entertain and engage us throughout the trip. I have a special mention to give to my instructor who made me feel at ease. He adjusted to my expectations to offer a hydrospeed descent. It was simply unforgettable. As soon as I return to Annecy, I’m going back!!!!!”
