Booked myself and my ten year old son for a morning of canyoning- Monte Medio had come highly recommended by friends locally. The whole experience was great. Daniel, the guide was first class. It was very apparent that his absolute priority was to show his guests a great time in a safe manner, without coming across as overbearing or patronizing, which can often be the case when taking part in an activity with a ten year old. He made sure my son was safe at all times, but allowed him the freedom to really explore and enjoy the activity, which led to a hugely rewarding experience for him. A great experience and one which was great to share!

Our family were staying in Lake Annecy without a car and rang Monté Médio to discuss our options re via ferrata, canyoning etc. They were extremely helpful, with lots of advice on transport options etc. after catching a boat to Talloires and a short walk to Angon we relaxed at the beach next to the base. We did the Angon Canyon Discovery with Romain as our guide - and ended up being the only booking, so had the tour to ourselves! It was our first time canyoning and we all loved it. Romain was engaging and confident and made sure everyone felt safe and enjoyed their experience. They also emailed us some great action photos which was an added bonus. It was the highlight of our 3 teenage children’s 3 weeks in France. Thank you Monté Médio and Romain!

We went on our first canyoning experience with Romain from Monte Medio & had a great time. We were in a small group of 4 people and felt very safe as well as having a great adventure.

What a day – I booked a day of Canyoning with Monté Médio for myself and my two sons and what a fantastic adventure. From the start, Monté Médio made it easy. I booked and paid for my trip in advance and the process was easy and correspondence via e-mail quick and efficient. Upon arrival, we met at the Monté Médio facility, lakeside (plenty to do there as well) in Talllories, about 20 minutes by car from Annecy. Check in was easy and seamless – since I prepaid / prebooked they had my name and we were good to go. They supplied wetsuits – all we needed were shoes and a bathing suit. We had some French but our guide (Vincent) and the owner spoke some English. They gave us quick overview of the day, and then we jumped into the bus and headed up into the mountains. Our trip, the Sport Descent into Montmin Canyon, took about three hours. We had a total of 10 people in our group with our guide Vincent. Vincent was a rock star!! Super nice, knowledgeable and he had the skill and personality to keep everyone at ease and feeling safe. We all were supplied with climbing helmets and gear allowing us to clip in and climb or abseil as necessary. When required, Vincent would clip us in and allow us to descend / abseil down through waterfalls and rockslides. Wherever it made sense, we jumped – generally from the top of a waterfall into a below pool – absolutely awesome! Both my boys, 16 and 18, absolutely loved it. Most obstacles had another way to climb down but I would say you need to be somewhat comfortable climbing and jumping and in decent shape. The jumps and slides were great with the tallest being almost 25 feet. Water temperature was cool but we were perfect in our wetsuits. Montmin Canyon was absolutely beautiful and not crowded at all. We did not meet many other people – in fact, we only saw just one other group the entire three-hour trip. We finished up at bottom and hiked out to our bus. Hike out was relatively vigorous and took about 20 minutes. Once again, I would say you need to be in decent shape – we passed some people clearly struggling to hike out. All in all, a great day of adventure – highly recommend!! Monté Médio does a great job, and knows their business. The guide Vincent, as stated before, was great – very nice, qualified and professional. He made our trip. Definitely worth a visit!

Great experience for all the family. Vincent was a great guy with a lot of patient to all the group needs and fears.. There are no GoPro camera or other so you better bring of your own. In case prove to water and rock.
