Canyoning dans les Gorges du Verdon - Une femme qui descend dans un canyon - Rafting Aboard

Canyons are usually deep-cut and narrow gorges where water has carved beautiful grooves and harmonious shapes. There are many ways of exploring all the hidden corners of a canyon: swimming, walking, sliding, abseiling down, swinging from one side to the other on a tight horizontal rope…

Progressing in a very vertical canyon involves more abseiling down either waterfalls or dry sections, and more horizontal canyons imply spending more time in wide pools, more swimming and jumping.

No particular technical experience is necessary to go canyoning; novices can easily discover those otherwise inaccessible areas, where the pleasure of jumping in deep clear pools and going down natural slides mix with the thrills of abseiling down in these often grandiose environments.

The guides, who are rock climbing experts, explain all there is to know about abseiling down and safety in the canyon before setting out.
