Terréo offers a selection of aquatic hikes a few kilometers from Lake Annecy. These courses are aimed in particular at families with young children. We have already had the pleasure of supervising small children, parents and grandparents on our outings which want to be accessible to as many people as possible. However, even if the obstacles are small, the fact remains that we will be walking on rocky terrain that can be slippery. These aquatic hiking trails have been selected for their interest and in particular with regard to the environment they offer, so practicing this activity in a wild natural setting is a real plus, far from the crowds. Aquatic hiking in the region of nnecy is an activity particularly suitable during hot summer afternoons, offering the possibility of a refreshing stroll with the family, of playing with the water, of swimming. During our outings, we will provide you with all the equipment necessary for the activity. The equipment is similar to that of canyoning: neoprene wetsuit and socks, helmet and harness. Supervision is provided by a qualified canyoning instructor. Beyond the fun aspect allowed by the water games, an awareness of the natural environment will be offered. Thus our guides will address themes such as geology, the torrent regime, flood phenomena, fauna and flora.
