Descente de la cascade d'Angon 35m

Description

The Angon Canyon is an Annecy classic, one to check off your bucket list. Located on the edge of Annecy Lake, Agnon Canyon is a good fit forbeginners with some prior canyoning experience. The Canyon has 2 options :

  • Angon Performance the longer of the two routes
  • Angon discovery, a shorter duration and more moderate than Angon Performance

For the Performance version, you will have to climb a somewhat strenuous path for 30 minutes or do it faster by car.

The descent begins, further upstream, by a vertiginous 115ft rappel down in the Angon waterfall from a famous lookout point.

The descent begins with an impressive rappel from the footbridge where there is a breathtaking view of the waterfall. As you begin the decent directly in the water, if the flow is high, things can be more sporty.

Next up, the always exciting left bank featuring a 60ft free-hanging rappel . Once out of the water, a narrow gully sends you through the ‘mailbox’, an original and surprising toboggan-siphon!

The Performance route provides a variety of technical situations in the setting of "La Tournette", an impressive mountain overlooking Annecy Lake.

FAQ

No, this 115ft rappel is a mandatory section of Angon Performance. I will . If you feel hesitant, do not fret, your guide will help you down.

No, the routes are separate and do not overlap…but great news, we’ll celebrate with a toast together at the end of our adventures!

In terms of water temps, the Angon Canyon is moderate and includes small pools for swimming that are shallow and easy to exit.

We offer the Montmin canyon and Angon Performance at the same price and duration, but they are 2 different canyons:

  • Montmin is a little further from Annecy than Angon. It's an aquatic canyon with lots of jumps and slides and only one 10m abseil.
  • Angon performance is at the edge of Annecy Lake, it is a vertical canyon with many abseils and only a few jumps and slides.

From Annecy:

  • By Bus: line 61 Annecy Talloire Montmin. From Anney bus station to "Angon" stop. Journey time 40 minutes. More information about the schedules of this line. More informations Bus schedules.
