A canyon accessible to all

Canyon
de la Semine

Get ready for a half-day of adventure in a unique setting! The Semine is a magnificent canyon far from the crowds. It's made up of a succession of giant pools formed by erosion, which take on a beautiful emerald-green hue in the sunlight, inviting you to take a dip. The pools are separated by waterfalls that can be crossed by jumps, slides or abseiling.
Fun and technically easy, this canyon is accessible to all and ideal for a family outing. The last waterfall, 13 metres high, is an exceptional jump for the most courageous. Return to the car via a pretty, shady hike. After the canyon, you can extend your day with a visit to the spectacular cirque d'Orvaz, where the Semine rises.

A family adventure

Adventure day
in the Valserine gorges

The day begins in Champfromier, a charming village overlooking the Valserine Gorge.
After equipping you with harness, helmet and lanyards, your instructor will lead you to the top of the Sous Roche cliff. The view over the gorge is superb.
A short via ferrata will then allow you to acclimatize to the void and reach the start of the big abseil, the highlight of the day! 60 meters, first along a slab of white limestone, then suspended in mid-air on a spider's thread! Time to collect your wits, and you'll reach the second abseil of the day, 30 metres along a superb waterfall to the bottom of the gorge. After a well-deserved rest, you'll head back up the gorge through a chaos of boulders, thanks to the via cordata installed by Valserine Outdoor, to the Pont du Dragon, where an easy path leads back to the car.
