of this activity

Meet at 9:30 am or 2:00 pm at “la Batie” 04120, near the former “Restaurant des chasseurs”, (see access map), for a real incursion inside one of the tributaries of the Verdon river : the Jabron canyon.

The canyoning guide is there to welcome you on the car park. He hands out your equipment and you are ready to go. A 30 min. walk takes you right up to the entrance of the canyon.

There, you are introduced to the abseiling techniques and then gradually penetrate inside the canyon.

Soon, you need to adapt your progression technique. Abseiling down a 5 m “rappel”, sliding down a natural stone slide, and jumping in clear pools at the heart of the canyon become the necessary techniques…

At the end, a walk (40 mn.) back in the forest brings us to the start.

The Jabron canyon is a short but spectacular canyon, accessible to everyone in reasonable fitness.

None of the jumps and slides is compulsory and can be abseiled down instead, if you wish not to jump.
