An adventure holiday.

A 7-day introduction to the wide variety of summer sports possible in this wonderful part of France, based in the alpine resort of Chamonix.

Normal summer clothing is shorts, t-shirt and sandals. It's a great place for a holiday.

Our water sports, canyoning and white-water rafting, will cool you down ! And walking out onto the glacier ice is a marvellous cooling experience.
