20 minutes separate Briançon and Serre Chevalier from the canyon of Fournel. 

It is at Argentière la Bessée and more specifically at the “silver mines” that the canyoning adventure starts. 

The team of Serre Chevalier sensation will guide you in the most beautiful and the best canyon of the High-Alps 

Children from 8 years, with friends or family and even for a stag party : it is a canyon accessible to all. 

Known by all the specialists in canyoning in Briançon, this canyon is the most famous of the High-Alps region and for good reason, many jumps from 1 to 6 meters can be made, and the natural slides are just great, all is surrounded by turquoise waters. 

You will be supervised by a professional instructor who will guide you through this exceptional canyon and as we are here to have fun, nothing is obligatory, you will be able to circumvent one or more obstacles without worries. 

The canyoning activity will end on a small descent abseiling 4 meters, just to fill up the thrills.
