Groin spring


The canyon du Groin is one of the most beautiful in France. For all canyoning enthusiasts, this is a must. It has become more and more practiced over the last ten years and has gained international notoriety. It is exceptional because of its depth, its complexity with its many jumps and obstacles that follow one another
The river Groin is an atypical river, the erosion has dug many potholes and has formed a very deep labyrinth course.
This river is a resurgence and the flow of water can vary suddenly, that is why it is very important to check the weather and to check the flow of water upstream at the level of the water reservoir.
To start, a jump to enter the Groin canyon and then the crossing of 2 short and safe siphons.
The first part is very steep and therefore there is very little light, especially when the weather is overcast.
The second part is much less steep. Many jumps and swims follow each other during the course. The diversity of obstacles and the steepness of the canyon make it intense and sporty. A last jump of 12m finishes the course for the most courageous.
It is quite physical, and requires a certain endurance, it is very aquatic, you will be provided with a wetsuit (you must be able to swim).
Other canyons like Chaley or Tréfond-Pernaz are possible and more accessible for young children.

La Rotonde Ferroviaire in Chambéry

(49 km from the campsite)

Chambéry’s exceptional railway location led to the construction of the roundhouse, to facilitate shunting and maintenance of the locomotives.
It is one of the last great achievements of a long-span articulated steel structure in France, this technique having then disappeared with the advent of reinforced concrete. It is composed of two parts: a ring 27m wide and a dome 55m in diameter. The building is 34m high, 110m in diameter and weighs 900 tons.
While the railway installations were targeted by the Allies, the roundhouse was miraculously spared by the 1944 bombing. When its destruction was envisaged in 1980, a few passionate railwaymen managed to convince the SNCF management to preserve this precious industrial testimony from the beginning of the century. It was classified as a historical monument in 1984.
Gradually maintained and restored by the SNCF, it is still used for the maintenance of about fifty locomotives. A dedicated area presents several historic electric locomotives, including the famous 2CC2 3402, which was the most powerful machine in the world in 1929.
