Route du Pont Neuf - Alby-sur-Chéran

Give canorafting a whirl with your family in the Bauges mountains, just a stone's throw from Annecy ! Due to the melting snow, canorafting down the Chéran river is only possible for a short period of the year. Several routes are possible ; the routes you can take will depend on the water level of the river. Your state-certified instructor will take you out to explore the landscapes of Bauges natural park. You'll see the limestone gorges of this area on a two-hour tour with your guide. You'll alternate between light rapids and calmer waters so that the whole family can fully enjoy the 8 km canoe ride. Have fun with the whole family and discover some stunning landscapes around Annecy !
