Pursue your passion in the Giffre Valley
Originating from the waters of the glaciers of Mount Ruan, culminating at an altitude of 2,858 metres, the Giffre is a rainfall torrent, in other words a torrent fed by melting snow and precipitation. As a result, flows can vary greatly, particularly in the event of heavy rain or during snowmelt. This tumultuous torrent is born in the historic village of Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval by its two tributaries, the Giffre du Fer-à-cheval and the Giffre des Fonts. A vast mountain fishing route classified in the first category, you can find 27 km of Giffre from Morillon to Sixt Fer à Cheval as well as 23 km of streams. Open to sport fishing with toc, vairon manié, lures, natural baits but also fly, fishing in the Giffre valley allows you to find at the end of your lines wild trout farios, rainbow trout, Arctic char and brook salmon.
