The Giffre river runs only a 2 minute walk from PureChalets, and is the base for many watersports.

Rafting - a really fun way to travel the 7km from Sixt to Samoens, in an inflatable raft which takes up to 8 people, plus a guide. A half day costs 33 euros for adults and 24 euros for kids, which includes all transport and wetsuits.

Canorafting - an inflatable canoe for 2 - it allows you to discover the river in a completely different way. A half day is 36 euros for adults.

Hydrospeed - jump in the water with flippers and a float. Great for racing your friends down the rapids.

Canyoning - sometimes called gorge walking, canyoning uses a mixture of abseiling, hiking, sliding and jumping to descend the length of a mountain stream. An adreneline rush. A half day costs 40 euros for adults and 35 euros for kids.

Caving - Samoens has excellent pot-holing with one of the deepest caves ever explored in Europe.

PureChalets can pre-book any of these activities for you before your holiday.

Multi-Activity Week

If you want to try several sports during your holiday, then this is possible too. Adult courses in walking, climbing, potholing, canyoning and rafting can be arranged. Please email us for details
