Meet at 9:00 am at St. Auban (45mn. drive from Castellane) (see acces map) or at 10:00 am at the Riolan bridge, near Sigale (see access map), depending where you are coming from.
In case you meet the guide in St.Auban, you will follow him for a 45 mn. drive to Sigale, where he will organize a car drop-off at the exit of the canyon.
After handing out your equipment, he will give a safety talk concerning abseiling techniques and safety inside the canyon.
A 15 mn walk will be necessary to reach the entrance of the canyon.
The Riolan canyon is a beautiful canyon bordered at some places by cliffs measuring up to 300 m.
This descent will imply spending most of the time in the water, as the canyon meanders at the bottom of a deep gorge which opens up onto large pools of water which then flow underneath big boulders.
There will be a good number of jumps (maximum 6 m.) and a few rappels (maximum 15 m.). You will swim down long stretches in clear water and encounter a fun natural slide which will without fail surprize and amaze you.
At the end of the trip, we find the vehicles and take off our equipment.
