Back to the Samoens valley and Hydrospeed on the Giffre.
After a restful night in spotless dormitories with comfortable bedding and a hearty breakfast in the dining hall, we will set off in the direction of the ‘’Combe aux Puaires’’ amid rhododendrons and globes flowers. We will leave this route to go down by the ‘’Pas de l’Avoine’’ up to ‘’Vallon des Barmes’’. It has an abundance of lilies and orchids and it’s common to observe chamois here. We continue down returning to the valley around noon.
After a good meal, provided by you (or in a restaurant in Samoens), we are ready for our Hydrospeed descent on the Giffre.
We meet at the Samoens base at 2pm. A change of scenery calls for a change of equipment! We’ll give you a thick wetsuit, helmet, float, flotation vest and flippers.
Your guide will instruct you and after a little practice in the shallows, you’ll jump into the waves.
You become one with the water, playing in the rollers and you will progress to surfing against the current. We will finish the weekend looking for bigger waves in the stronger and deeper currents.
