This canyon is known to be one of the most beautiful in France, and even in Europe. The course is highly varied and has a sustained pace for its numerous jumps and slides. This canyon is particularly beautiful due to the quality of its water and to its minerals which are exceptional.
You’ll be able to test your ability to jump from 10 meters but you’ll also be able to get around the highest jumps by abseiling with the instructor’s help. One must be in good physical condition and be confident in water in order to do this outing because the sections where you’ll have to swim are mandatory.
Shuttle service is provided to bring you to the canyon’s departure. You’ll then be given the equipment you need as well as safety instructions before starting your course. The canyon’s beginning starts with a pretty difficult slide named as “the washing machine” : keep your mouth closed but open your eyes!
We’ll then be doing several jumps from 5 to 7 meters alternatively with 10 meters slides; moments of pure happiness! The next part of the course is all about swimming the river along its steep banks before ending up at the heart of a cave with stalactites. From there, we’ll be abseiling down the rocks to get back to sunlight and have a break for lunch. Once rested, we’ll start the last part of the canyon with several waterfalls and jumps. At one point, we’ll have to pass a harder but shorter section using via ferrata techniques. Finally, we’ll be reaching the ultimate basin before walking across olive fields to the initial parking
