What you can do


  • Ice Diving: Discover the beauty and wonder of a frozen lake! Explore underwater life in a magical and mysterious environment. Try a surprising exploration of Tignes’ lake, covered six months of the year by ice. At your own pace and with a professional diver, you will dive to a depth of up to 80 cm. You will enter a fascinating world of beams of light, translucent colours and surreal atmosphere.


  • Rafting: Rafting is the most accessible water sports activity on offer. Whether you are looking for an amateur sport, a nature experience or simply a first taste of what a river can offer, you will love this activity! Routes available for children age 8 and upwards.
  • Hydrospeed: Hydrospeed or Riverboard is the technical activity par excellence and the whitewater sport for adrenalin junkies. Riverboarding lessons are available for good swimmers aged 13 and over.
  • Canoe-rafting: Canoeing has its roots in kayaking and is done in a little two-person raft. Canoeing descents are available for those aged 12 and over. Explore the river with your guide in your canoe then learn to captain your vessel. The activity requires lessons and you’ll start practising to paddle and keeping safe on a lake before you head for the rapids.
  • Canyoning: Slide down natural toboggan runs, carved out over centuries by water, jump into rock pools and abseil over waterfalls.  A fun and athletic activity to share with friends or family.
