What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

You can enjoy and challenge yourself in almost every way imaginable here. Start with something crazy, from grabbing a wetsuit and hydro-speeding down a canyon river, to paraglide-skiing off-piste. Then warm down with an intensive massage and a cooking class on the fabulous mountain-style cuisine of the area.
