The Angon Canyon is the classic one near Annecy. Located at the edge of Annecy Lake, it is a course deemed accessible to resourceful beginners. This canyon has 2 versions : the complete part is Angon Performance which we describe in here, and the other part is Angon discovery, which is for those who want to have a gentle start.
For the Performance version, it is possible to climb and hike for 30 minutes or go by car.
When the descent of the Performance version begins, further in upstream, there is a waterfall of Angon (tourist site with belvedere / bridge) by a vertiginous rappel and water of 40m.
So we enter the canyon by making an impressive descent from the tourist "bridge" of the waterfall of Angon. With a good flow of water, this first rappel can be more athletic because we descend into the waterfall directly.
Then we descend like spider on rope of 18m on the left bank where is out of water, then we slide one obstable and we will join and discover the course of ‘mailbox’ : an orginal and surprising toboggan-siphon!
The Performance version provides a variety of descents in the setting of mountainous spinning just above Annecy Lake.See more

No, this descent of 40 meters is an obligatory passage of Angon performance canyon, and we can not avoid it; but if you do not feel like abseiling alone (control your own speed), the monitor can do it for you. All in all, if you do not really feel it, you may go to the discovery version of the canyon.
We offer the Montmin canyon and Angon Performance at the same price and duration, but they are 2 different canyons:
No, Angon is not famous for being a cold canyon, moreover the swimming parts are rather short (small pools) so we can go out quickly.
No, the accesses are completely different and do not allow to join easily.
