The activity begins with two short slides. A 6 m jump brings you to the point where the canyon becomes deeper and narrower.

You then climb down a few obstacles and arrive at the top of a beautiful waterfall which you cross by sliding on a tight rope attached at the other side of the canyon.

A 5 m jump follows, and the canyon opens up again.

After that point, you can enjoy a few jumps and a few more exciting slides still await you.

At the bottom of the canyon, a short walk is necessary to return to the starting point.

Due to local reglementation, St-Auban canyon is accessible only on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
