The descent into the middle of the White Valley, facing the surrounding glaciers, will leave you in awe of this unsuspected route.

From Praz de Chamonix to Les Houches, you’ll cross the rapids in the famous Chamonix mountain resort, swim in the glacial waters of the Arve with your neoprene equipment, and finally enjoy our base at the foot of the Taconnaz glacier.

The Arve enjoys good conditions throughout the season.
