Saturday morning : FOREST HIGH ROPE COURSE

Meet at 9:30 am at our rope course “Adventure Forest” (see the access map).

Move from tree to tree on a series of varied challenges at a height of 2 to 12 meters above ground. Test your balance on Nepalese bridges, slide on death slides, thread your way through hanging barrels – all of this in complete safety. All you need to do is to put on a harness, follow a few simple safety instructions, and all the fun and excitement will be yours !

A total of 50 varied and progressive challenges await you in the forest.

This real forest adventure is performed in an exceptionnally beautiful 3 ha. site planted with pine trees and broadleaved-trees, and is bordered with cliffs overlooking the Verdon river.

Saturday afternoon : WATER-RAMBLING in the Verdon

Then meet us at 1.00 pm at our private ground “Adventure Forest”. You will get equipped there and will be driven to the Samson corridor view point with the ABOARD Rafting bus (20 mn. drive).

Equiped with a wetsuit, a helmet and a life jacket, you let the current carry you gently along the river and take you to discover the Verdon’s best-kept mineral secrets. A “water ramble” not only implies floating, but also jumping and swimming in clear water, or walking around rapids, fallen trees or any obstacle we might encounter.

Thanks to this simple technique, the naturals beauties hidden at the bottom of the gorges do not escape our eyes, and you can enjoy a refreshing and exciting moment. We will then ramble our way through a maze of rocks (well-named “les Labyrinthes”). We will eventually reach the end of the Samson corridor where we will get out of the river.

Once out of the water, there is a 20 minutes walk on the Sentier Martel trail to reach the Samson view point road, where we will be driven back to Adventure Forest.

Sunday morning : CANYONING in St Auban

Meet at 9:00 am at the canyoning site of St. Auban (see acces map).

The canyoning guide is there to welcome you. He gives a safety talk, introduces you to the environment and to the abseiling techniques, and hands out your equipment.

St. Auban canyon has a lot a water and promises to give you plenty of opportunities to swim, slide on natural slides and jump.

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 – up to 7 m if you wish to – 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.





More than just a breath of fresh air under the Provence sun, this programme involves discovering part of the Verdon Gorges, as well as a canyon closeby Castellane.

The flow of the Verdon is regulated by a dam. In the summer, the days of water release where the flow is at a minimum level, enables “water rambling” on the section of the Verdon which is not usually accessible by boat.

The rope course takes place in our “Adventure forest” situated near Castellane.

The canyoning takes place in the St. Auban canyon, 40 mn away from Castellane.
