Summer Fun in Samoëns – White Water Activities

White Water Fun to Cool Down in Samoëns

Sunny Summers in Samoëns

Summer in Samoëns tends to be a sunny and uplifting affair. Of course, it’s the mountains so we can have an odd day of rain or a spectacular storm sweep through but the underlying climate is blue skies and sunshine (it’s 31°C as I write this.)

What better way to enjoy the sun than to take a splash into one of the various white water activities on offer? The Giffre meanders its way down the valley through Samoëns and offers incredible and exhilarating opportunities for all those who want to float along it.

Big smiles for the whole family

In this, another of our summer blog posts, we’ll give you information on white water fun.
