Meeting point in Luz Saint Sauveur in the morning for an extraordinary half day of winter sport, in a magical winter setting. After a careful preparation of your combination and under layers you finally reach the stage where you are ready. Watertight combination, gloves, hood, off we go! The setting is magical, a mix of rushing streams and ice, fascinating. This activity is unique in France, be the very first to throw yourself into the icy waters of the Pyrenean canyons, whilst keeping just as warm as in summer. What a fabulous experience!
